Party lovers will be excited about the nightlife in Goa, with so many spots to drink, dance and have fun. Let’s have a look at some of them.
The cliffs at the Vagator beach hold a treasure chest called 9 Bar, the great joint which boasts some of the best crowd in Goa. It opens at 6pm, but the real party starts around 10 pm with EDM beats.
The Cavelossim beach in Mobor holds various attractions and is famous for its party scene. The Aqua Bar is extremely popular with the party crowd due to its charming environment, so it is number 2 on the list. Grooving trans music fills the corners of the Dance club.
Tito’s is considered one of the best discos in Goa, open all year round. So you certainly don’t want to miss having a drink in this iconic discotheque.
Few places have created a legend of their own. Club Cubana is one of them for sure.
The pub is where the liquids flow freely and the Liquid Lounge Pub near Mobor beach in South Goa is no different. The pub is crowded with Indian foreigners enjoying a pint of beer and good music.
Paraiso de Goa
The Anjuna beach is carved out from a small hillock adjoining it; thus, the hillock overlooking the beach gains prominence, and so does the swinging trance bar Paraiso de Goa or Paradiso, located right atop the hill. Sipping cocktails at Paraiso de Goa while watching the waves wash the Anjuna beach.
The Shore Bar on Anjuna beach will remain forever etched in your memory. The beautiful setting and great ambience, with its innovative design and creative structure, is an experience not to be missed.
Club West End
It is not surprising to find pubs and clubs near the beaches of Goa becoming the focal points after sunset. However, a few clubs attract regulars and first-timers due to the reputation gained and maintained over many years.
Nightlife in Goa: Cafes
Café Mambo, located at the Baga beach, is within walking distance from Calangute. Although the café started as another run-of-the-mill joint, it gained immense popularity immediately.
It is said that restaurants and Cafes mature and become more alluring with age, just like old wine. The Loekie cafe has just completed more than 15 years of excellent service. It has soared in ratings as one of Goa’s leading food and relaxation joints.
Nightlife in Goa: Casinos
Hacienda de Oro Casino
If you’re a slot machines maniac, Hacienda de Oro Casino at Mobor beach is your place.
The Caravela Casino is located on a 215 ft cruise ship capable of accommodating more than 300 gamblers.

The Calangute Road is more popular than any party club. The beach has gained prominence over the years due to the wide variety of shopping avenues and showrooms that have sprung around it.

Few pleasures equal the experience of lying under a starry night, listening to a cool dude strum his guitar and sing your favourite song while the bonfire crackles and barbecue steak smells exquisite. The beach shack of La Plage promises you just that and much more.
- Villa Sol
The Villa Sol offers a blend of Indian as well as Western cuisines. The place has been tastefully decorated and remodelled to create a soothing ambience that suits all types of guests.

- Ingo’s Night Market
The Saturday night gathering in 1999 was a low-key affair with a motley group of westerners turning up with their beers and guitars for a night of gossip and musical extravaganza. However, a German citizen named Ingo separated from this group and started his own night market; great for shopping.
