Goa Nightlife

The non-conformist, unconventional and gypsy lifestyle of the Hippies is evident in the social life of Goans today. Party happens virtually throughout the year in this beach capital. Today, Goa has become synonymous with wild parties popularly known as rave or trance parties which is a craze among both the locals and tourists alike. This party culture is an evident legacy of the Hippies, who came to India in the 1960s.

Despite harassment from police, rave parties have thrived and persisted. The venue and time of the parties are never publicised. So you would have to get sneaky and ask around the shacks at little Vagator, Anjuna, or Arambol if you want to attend. Traditionally, the location is disclosed only few hours before the event. Most of these underground dance and music parties start around 11 pm and go on till at least 8 am. But once it begins it would be just too loud to miss. The plus factor is that coupled with the dance and music, drinks are freely available. Some local women make the most of the parties for making extra bucks by setting up tea and snack stalls outside. The scene at the place is in itself intoxicating. People come dressed in typical hippie clothes wearing old-fashioned, colourful clothes with rave belts. Their costumes sparkle as they dance to the beats of psychedelic trance belted out by the DJ. Some rave fans fondly say that it is a mystical, devotional experience something like a spiritual encounter.

Rave parties are just a small part of the bigger night picture. Nightclubs are as happening and tourists cram these places. Hotels, pubs, bars and casinos are also a party spot but beaches are a hotspot. Tito's in Baga Beach continues to be the most happening club while The Beachotheque is popular among the youths and Club Cabana among the elite. The party culture in Goa was introduced by the Hippies too. After landing in Goa, these flower people used to party the whole night at the beaches. This tradition is still alive today. Party is an everyday affair and Goans don’t need any excuse for partying.

Casinos are another popular night hangout, recently introduced but quickly catching up. It is not surprising that the government has not been able to enforce the 11 pm deadline. Casinos are available both on board cruise ships and on land where you can try you luck with a game of roulette, blackjack, baccarat and craps. The famous casinos are Cicade de Goa Beach Resort and Casino at Dauna Paula, Las Vegas - the Gaming Club Leela Palace Hotel, Treasures Casino Majorda beach resort.

Goa has place for the loner too. There are plenty of beach shacks where many come to drink or to have good food and some of the owners even organise bonfires and barbecues in the evening.

Though alcohol is available everywhere, the government has strict laws against drunken driving, nudity and drugs.
