Hey !

Goa offers an exuberant night life with discos and clubs. The concept of bar cum restaurants is very popular here and almost every third house has a room open to public and a few chairs where you can enjoy your drink.

1. Tito's Nightclub

Tito's Nightclub is the local legend of Baga beach and is the most popular beach pub of Goa. It is an open air pub and the 1980s rock music is enough to get the night started. They have different themes for different days of the week. The pub is centrally located to all other popular nightspots in Baga.

Here's a review from Fodor's :


Always packed, Tito's is the most happening bar and disco in Goa. Cafe Mambo, on the premises, is open 9:30 am-3:30 am daily, but the party crowd doesn't come in until close to midnight. Expect fashion shows, famous DJ mixers theme nights, and expensive drinks.

The Techno and Trans music churned out by the DJs is considered to be the best in Goa. For diehard fans of electrifying music and partying, Club Cubana is surely not to be missed.

Here's a review:

A 'must' when you visit wonderful Goa is to go to Club Cubana. Set high above Goa, the views are fantastic and the this has to be the best bar in the State.Friday and Saturday are 'the' nights to go - make sure you look 'great' because not everyone is allowed in! The bars are busy and buzzy and there are so many of them all over this large property. The bar belongs to one of the best-connected and respected Goan families and is the best.

Here is a review:

The Shore Bar on Anjuna beach is sure to remain permanently etched in your memory forever. The beautiful setting and great ambience, with its innovative design and creative structure, is an experience not to be missed. The bar resembles an open tent, which has been pegged on the open canvas of the Anjuna beach shores. The creative graphics which are displayed on the walls of the pub and open-air seating is unique. Great relaxing atmosphere, mixed bag of nostalgic tunes, direct view of the setting golden sun and some lip smacking stuff served make Shore bar an must visit place.

On Friday's Goa's own local band 'Jazz Junction' performs and the band features some great Jazz artists who will kindle the jazz enthusiast in you.
