Historically the darkest, sleaziest part of Strait Street, also labelled ‘The Gut’ – the old red- light district of Valletta, and home to notorious hangouts such as Silver Horse, Blue Peter and James Bond, has come back to life after over 50 years of neglect. The Gut is a high-end restaurant and bar hub where fine dining, music, theatre, cabaret, dance, and architecture all come together between two walls and on three dimensions.
‘The Gut’ has been rejuvenated by the VBL Group who have invested in a lavish gastro-retail project combining the spirit of the 1920s with modern fine dining, live music and dancing. SAW Ltd. contributes to the value of this development with the facades and stage, maintaining architectural integrity of the original buildings.
