Strip clubs in Paceville. Gentlemen’s clubs are also known as lap-dancing bars, strip clubs or pole-dancing venues and there are a good number of these in Malta today. Historically, when the British forces were based here, Valletta’s Strait Street was a hive of activity for strip clubs and other adult activities – it was world-renowned back then. Today, the venue has changed and has been somewhat upgraded, and a number of adult clubs are found mainly in Paceville, but there are also some popular clubs further out in Bugibba and Sliema. These clubs generally are free to enter, serve drinks and have a strict age restriction – adults only.
