5 hottest bars in Goa
Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark.
Glam gets to Goa
It’s not all hippies and full moon parties in Goa. The uber-trendy crowd hang out in Tease, a glitzy bar with the region’s most creative cocktails. They’re so serious about their blended drinks in fact; they even had a recent festival on molecular mixology! That might sound very high-brow - but to me and you, it’s just a whole new way of enjoying liquids, virgin and alcoholic. Try the Monkey Business, featuring banana pieces soaked in honey, coffee, lime juice and vodka. You’ll be swinging from the trees before long!

Hilltop Bar
Turn on, tune in, drop out
Goa’s long been a counter-cultural haven. Even with its influx of package holidays, you can still experience some of the original vibe which made this place famous. Join the party lovers at The Hill Top, where people go to drink, dance and get in touch with their inner selves.
With the stars above, the ocean below, the worldly crowd and the pulsing beats, this is old school Goa and proud of it. Ask about the jungle parties for an even wilder experience.

Club Tito
Goa’s original mega-club
Set up in 1971, Tito has been through several incarnations. Today, it’s ultra-cool, with the property featuring both the main club as well as a more chilled lounge café on the beach. The club boasts an impressive size dance floor, pumping out a wide range of tunes, from Bollywood to hip-hop. If you can blag your way into the VIP section upstairs, go for it. You’ll truly appreciate the clubs international make-up and global crowd. Plus, it’s a great view of the pulsing, dancing masses below!

Chilled bar turns up the heat
Set in the Café Del Mar mould, Mambo’s offers the hip, both young and old, somewhere to chill out and enjoy sunsets and the ocean vibe. You can escape the summer warmth in the air-con or sway rhythmically outdoors in the heat. Whichever you choose, you’ll have a wide range of drinks to match, from mango daiquiris to tequila shots. Hip-hop and house music plays in the background and when you get the munchies, there’s a tasty bar menu offering everything from tandoori to pizza. Hey Mambo's!

Party on the beach
What would Goa be without its beach shacks? An ideal place to escape the crowds of the super-clubs, Curlies was one of the original shacks on Anjuna Beach, supplying chilled cocktails, an eclectic menu and an awesome beachfront location. Kicking off around 5pm, it’s the spot for sundowners, especially from its rooftop lounge bar. When the nibbles strike, order wood-fired pizza, Goan specialities, Indian curries and other international favourites. Its total casualness means you won’t want to leave.
