Hole in the Wall
70 years later Spiro Micallef had taken over the pub. Hole in the Wall was frequented by pilots & cabin staff of British Airways who would stay over-night between flights in the nearby Imperial Hotel. They used to say “I’ll see you down The Hole”. Eventually Spiro, a seaman in the Royal Navy who had served in both World Wars sold it in 1959 to Freddie & Charlie’s father, Anthony Bartolo.
After 45 hard, long years of running the bar, Freddie sold the bar in 2012 to Ian Camilleri. He had ambitious plans but sadly, after 2 years of running the bar he passed away.
The bar went on to, and is currently owned, by the Schranz brothers.
Today, Hole in the Wall in Sliema, continues to be a popular hang-out for an alternative crowd who enjoy a mix of crazy and laid-back nights depending on the mood of the evening. There are also regular live music gigs happening. Their facebook feed is a great way to keep up to date with the latest.
