If you like to party, Goa is the place to be thanks to its crazy nightlife. Night parties and raves in Goa are as crazy and loud as you want them to be and can rival many of the more well-known nightspots in Europe and beyond.
Here are a few popular places to party – but remember – there is nightlife to suit all tastes, including more chilled out and sophisticated areas perhaps more suited to luxury Goa holidays if the below do not tickle your fancy!


Thursdays are party night and it’s free entry. Found on the rocky and hippie beach of Anjuna, Curlies is popular for partying with friends with its laid-back atmosphere and hippie vibes.

Leopard Valley

This nightclub is found in Palolem in Canacona. Leopard Valley is a special party spot complete with laser lights, fire pits and famous DJs, making this a must-place to be. A nonstop supply of food and drinks is available all through the night too, making this truly a special place.

Club 9 Bar

Found on Vagator Cliff, this bar has parties outside and inside and is basically a little cave that has been soundproofed. If you want trance vibes this is where to be. Again DJs here are well-known and it’s near many hostels and guesthouses, so you can just drop in and at the same time soak in the stunning views of the Arabian Sea.

Hill Top

Backpackers, locals, Goan hippies and Indian tourists have been visiting here for many years. Very laid back and welcoming, the craziest parties are on Sundays and New Year’s and at Christmas they party all day! There is a cost for entry and it’s from 500 – 2,000 rupees depending on the type of party. Trance parties here are amazing but a little costly. As its name suggests, the club is up on a big hill in Vagator and has been around since 1976.

Shiva Valley

This is an amazing place on Anjuna beach, located next to Curlies. Shiva Valley is flooded by tourists all year looking for the best clubs and this is one of them. You also get to try the amazing, delicious seafood they serve.


Also located on Vagator Cliff but further down with stunning views, Chronicle is known for electronic music, techno and deep-house. It also has a restaurant which makes it a bit more upmarket and perfect for luxury holidays to Goa.

Silent Noise

Silent Noise is in Palolem and is the place for wild nights! On Saturdays, wireless headsets are provided and you can choose your music from many top DJs meaning you can enjoy the music you want to listen to!


In Calangute, Tito’s is the most popular place for night parties in Goa. The lane in Bag is called Tito’s Lane which is where this pub is located. There are often queues due to its amazing selection of DJs so get here early to avoid disappointment. You pay a one-time entry fee which includes unlimited food and drink.
