Discos, Music, Dance & Parties in Goa
As the sun goes down Goa Nightlife heats up. Prepare yourself for a great nightlife in goa! There are plenty to choose from. You can sit and listen to the sounds of live entertainment, or dance the night away at one of the hottest clubs. Regardless of your pleasure, you are sure to have the time of your life.
Goa has a more liberal attitude to goa nightlife than most places in India, but nightclubs are pretty much for tourists - both wealthy Indians and foreigners. For some time the only nightclub in Goa was in Calangute, and it's in this area where you'll still find the majority of Goa's Western-style nightlife - although it's gradually extending to Candolim and Arpora.
Goa Nightlife provide you with the best places to unwind,
|Famous Goa Bars & Nightclubs ...||
At Calangute, roughly where it creeps into Baga beach, Tito's is Goa's longest-running and most famous bar and nightclub. There are many other bars in the area, but none come close to Tito's. In south Calangute, Club Antoos is a late-night haunt, and there are a couple of chic, new 'Mumbai-style' music bars with discos in Candolim. Further inland, at Saligao, Club Westend is a party place with raves a couple of nights a week.
In a spectacular hilltop location in Arpora, Club Cubana is something different again - a late night bar and club (with swimming pool) where you pay an entry fee and all drinks are free. An Anjuna, Paradiso is undoubtedly Goa's most awesome club - a huge terraced place with several levels overlooking the beach. It attracts top Goan and international DJs.
|Goa Nightlife in South Goa ...||
In south Goa, nightclubs are mostly limited to the five-star resort hotels, which all have their own discos, bars and sometimes gaming rooms. As you'd expect, these are mainly frequented by hotel guests - well heeled Indian and foreign tourists - but they're open to any reasonably dressed patron. The Leela Palace and Holiday Inn Resort in Mobor, and the Goa Renaissance Resort and Club Mahindra in Varca are worth checking out, if you're staying in the vicinity.
Panaji also has a couple of nightclubs in the Campal district that are popular with local students.
|Music & Dance ...||
Some of the larger hotels and more upmarket restaurants lay on live music, which is usually Western and often good. Goan artistes give surprisingly authentic renditions of Western pop songs and are much in demand as entertainers in other parts of India.
A good place to see local live acts is at the Saturday night markets in Baga and Arpora. Ingo's Saturday Nite Bazaar, between Baga and Anjuna, features everything from rock fusion bands to jazz and Goan folk music.
The best place to catch a performance of Indian classical music and dance is at the Kerkar Art Complex in Calangute every Tuesday evening, or at the Kala Academy in Panaji. The Pop, Beat & Jazz Music Festival, held at the Kala Academy in February is the best opportunity to see performances of all types of music.
|Rave Parties in Goa ...||
As much as the average Goan would hate to admit it, one thing that has made this tiny state famous is the all-night, full-moon rave parties that took root here in the hippy days almost 30 years ago. The parties, mostly staged around Anjuna and Vagator, evolved and developed into mainstream events attracting hardcore European and Israeli ravers gyrating to the distinctive Goa Trance. Over the Christmas-New Year period organisers manage to get around the laws banning loud music after 10pm, but at other times the plugs regularly get pulled on parties - much to the relief of the locals.
Below are some of the more popular hotspots in Goa:
The most famous, talked about, written about place in Goa. Located on the Baga Beach, this place is more like a hangout for everyone and anybody in Goa. Besides a reasonable discotheque, it has speciality restaurants stretching upto the beach. Plays mostly funky, trance music and although famous has a shady reputation.
This is another trendy discotheque situated on the Miramar Road in Panaji. Open everyday of the week, it plays good disco music.
Newly opened up on the Calangute Beach, next to Goan Heritage Hotel. It has great ambience with a large pub and dance floor. The DJ?s however, are known to lack in playing the right kind of music.
Bamboo Forest/Paradisio/Hill Top
All the above are situated in the hotspot at Anjuna and Vagator area. All of them are known to have non-stop all night music, but is more famous for its drug scene and trance music.
