Goa: The Place To Party

It’s that time of the year when India’s party animals descend on their favourite haunt – Goa. No other place has called to them like the mythological Greek sirens, leading them ecstatically to the time of their lives. Goa’s night clubs are almost legendary, for their range of spirits and DJs alike, and the memories of each year-end fuel plans for the following. It is no wonder then, that Goa was named the ‘6th Best Nightlife City in the World’ by National Geographic for 2015. VIVA GOA picks five of the most popular nightclubs in Goa that never fail to satiate the thirst for a good night

CLUB TITOS, Baga

Down the throbbing corners of Titos Lane in Baga, there is a congregation of nightclubs, tattoo centres and clothes. It evokes colourful images of fun and parties in Goa, but each pub, bar and club also plays different genres of music. One can make a choice from Cape Town to Kamaki, Cocktails and Dreams to Club Titos or Cafe Mambo for the type of ambience and music that suits their preference.

Proudly in the middle of Titos Lane stands the ever popular Cape Town Cafe with a dance floor which entices customers with its groovy tunes. Ahead is Kamaki, a retro bar with live musicians and DJ’s while Cocktails and Dreams throws you back to the past with retro and old school tracks. Most have huge projector screens that relay international sports events. The most popular on the stretch, particularly with domestic tourists, is Club Tito’s which plays to its customers’ interests with lounge music, Bollywood, hip hop, and its Bollywood Discotheque for popular Hindi tunes. Bordering the sand is Cafe Mambo playing EDM and hip hop. At all, the attractions range from vibrant dancers and rhythmic gymnasts from Eastern Europe to outstanding local DJ who play scintillating tunes.

All these clubs are owned by brother duo David and Ricardo De Souza. He recalled, “I travelled extensively to Italy, Spain, Europe and Thailand besides Ibiza and Tomorrowland an umpteen number of times for new ideas before starting a night club. I was not influenced by their culture but their idea of a club. Kamaki owes its name to an island in Greece. I inherited the name Cape Town from one of my Italian friends who owned a ‘Cape Town Café’ while Mambo is from Ibiza. Kamaki is a guzzler who brings drunken old women and takes them home.”
