Foodies and pub-lovers now have an exciting new destination to enjoy, right opposite the Suncrest Resort on the Qawra seafront.

The Cheeky Monkey Gastropub was officially launched last week, with a lively event for corporate clients and DMCs at the Seashells Resort at Suncrest - and it went down a treat!

This new gastropub is a unique concept for Malta. It is being run by AX Holdings Ltd and led by AX Holdings Hospitality Director, Claire Zammit Xuereb , who has had years of experience in the hospitality industry.  

"A gastropub is different to your average pub because there is a real focus on the food as well as the fun," says Ms Zammit Xuereb. "This is definitely something different for Malta - a place to enjoy a fantastic night out, while also chowing down on really scrumptious food."

Aside from the food, there's also a firm focus on the drink, with a vast selection of whiskeys, top-quality beers and signature cocktails.

"To get our patrons in the mood for a fantastic weekend, we're kicking-off the summer with our Cheeky Friday Happy Hours, where drinks are two-for-one from 4-7pm - so that's a brilliant three hours, actually!" continues Ms Zammit  Xuereb.

The venue itself is modern and hip, and tailored to attract a slightly more discerning crowd. Patrons will enjoy drinking and dancing indoors or on the terrace overlooking the seafront, with live entertainment and performances by top DJs on the weekends. The Cheeky Monkey will also be showing all sporting events live on the big screen, adding to the great-fun atmosphere.

"We have certainly tried to come up with something new and exciting, and the focus is firmly on fun. Already our guests are loving the laid-back atmosphere, seafront setting, and, of course, the food - so we we're looking now forward to sharing all that with many more people over the summer," adds Ms Zammit Xuereb.
