What’s going on in August!

Rainforest Cafe is open!

Rainforest Cafe is now officially open in Malta and ready to welcome guests for a wild adventure in the heart

of St Julian’s, at Bay Street Complex. The official opening happened on Wednesday evening in the presence

of the Hon. Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection, Clayton Bartolo.

“It is an absolute pleasure to be opening up this new adventurous destination for the Maltese public. We

have been working extremely hard in order to bring Rainforest Cafe to Malta, and while the pandemic has

posed a number of challenges, we are now absolutely thrilled that all those who visit Bay Street have yet

another location to benefit from,” said Bay Street Group CEO, Mr. Albert Galea.

The Rainforest Cafe franchise has locations in some of the most notable cities around the world including

London, Niagara Falls, Tokyo and Paris. A visit to Rainforest Cafe will transport patrons to a tropical

rainforest where they will come face-to-face with life-size figures of rainforest animals including tigers,

snakes, crocodiles, frogs and beautiful tropical birds. Diners will also get the opportunity to witness

thunderstorms whilst enjoying a delicious meal. From pasta and seafood to burgers and mouth-watering

desserts, Rainforest Cafe has something for every member of the family.

“The day has come to open the doors to yet another Rainforest Cafe, now also here on the beautiful island of

Malta. Our franchise has now expanded to 7 countries with over 20 restaurants across the globe. Those

visiting the Malta restaurant will get to see life size figures of elephants, tigers, gorillas, snakes, parrots and

black panthers. This all adds up to a truly unique and educational experience for all those who visit,” said

Jarrett Ingram, Director of International Operations and Franchising of Landry’s.

In his keynote speech, Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo outlined how this

complex is a living monument of people who, despite the pandemic, pursued with more investment. "All this

is a clear demonstration of a resilient private sector. We promise that you will find us as your helping hand so

that the investment you have made is translated into a successful story,” remarked Minister Clayton Bartolo.

Santa Marija Fireworks

The feast of the assumption is celebrated in seven villages over Malta and Gozo but this year we cannot expect the usual festivities due to Covid. However, we can all still enjoy the many spectacular firework displays over the weekend of the 14th. We highly recommend packing cooler and finding a spot on the outskirts of Zurrieq to experience the beauty of the Mqabba and Qrendi fireworks… or wherever yo are, if you have the space for a bbq, this is the ideal weekend.
