History

The long and amazing history of the Skyroom Penthouse at Preluna Hotel, Sliema, Malta.

 

Located on the 14th Floor of the Preluna Hotel, the Skyroom has always been the most attractive feature of this family run, ever popular seafront hotel.

 

Soon after the opening of the hotel, the Skyroom was inaugurated in the summer of 1969, that is a whopping half a century ago. Opening its doors to a luxurious nightclub and restaurant with live bands and cabaret acts. It lived exciting years being the epitome of nightlife on the island, serving high end customers specializing.

 

In the years that followed the island suffered uncertainties in tourism and the economy in general resulting in a substantial downturn.

In the seventies discos were all the vogue. Stepping up its game, in line with the upcoming trend the area was refurbished, extended and turned into a groovy disco, complete with mirror ball lights, rotating spot lights and even laser effects!

 

Some years later with a turn around in tourism on the islands due to the popularity of package holidays. This encouraged the management to once again reinvent the space and cater for what was mainly British market. The cabaret was born! Renowned UK artists and comedians were invited to perform, flown in every week on an everchanging programme, supported by a host of dancers and singers. This new venture became an instant success and the highlight of entertainment on the island for many, many years. Shows featured top-quality artists some leaving a lasting impression on the locals who still remember the inimitable Pancho Villa, Jerry Harris and Guys in Disguise, amongst many others.

The Sundays were reserved for the original “Lejla Maltija”, transforming the room into a Folklore haven, with the “Ghanejja” and the “Paul Curmi Dancers” filling the shows whilst the restaurant served real Maltese specialities like “soppa tal-armla” , “stuffat tal-fenek” and ” helwa tat tork”. This night became so popular that by popular demand it became a twice or three times a week event.

The years of entertainment continued till the nineties when once again the management feeling the change of times had the room transformed into a relaxation lounge bar exclusive for its hotel residents.
