Description: Gugar! - Hangout and Bar is a co-operative effort between a group of friends who wanted to create a space for good living...A place where community can hang-out, enjoy a warm cup of tea or coffee, a beer or indulge into some of our delicious snacks. Among lots of other stuff, you will find a small but interesting library, gallery art by emerging local artists and a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Those looking for an inexpensive delicious healthy snack or a nutrient packed smoothie or juice are in for luck! The word "Gugar!" Comes from the Hindi concept of "Jugaar" [ जुगाड़] Although there is no exact English equivalent of the word, essentially, "Jugaar" means to come up with a creative solution for any problem you might encounter. Jugaar is the art of making things work. It is hybridity for the sake of a will/can-do philosophy. An innovation of desperation, if you will. It is to be flexible, to improvise and to make do with what you have. A large part of "Gugar!" Relies on hope and dreams.

Quiet and nice hangout place. Choice of vegetarian and vegan snacks. The place is not very big, but we never struggled to find a seat.

Terrible place with rude and disgusting staff. This place is really dirty, avoid it unless you want to catch something nasty. Stay away.

Looking for some veggie options. This is the place. I'm drinking their banana toffee smoothie right now, and am as happy as a clam. Delicious. Excellent music on the stereo system (Arcade Fire, Nick Cave...) I bet at night it's even cooler. Highly recommended as a funky little spot to come wet your whistle!

Really lovely little cafe/bar with genuine hippie overtones. Great vibe. Had beer and gorgeous homemade bean burger with delish bread. Well worth going for 10E.

Lovely quirky bar to hangout in either for food or drinks. A bit different from touristy in Valletta.
