    My friend and I are both going Goa for a holiday. We will be spend sightseeing during the day, and also doing some water sports. At night we would like to be out partying, and we want to know about the nightlife in Goa for singles.

    I would first like to know which places you would recommend for singles in Goa for nightlife?

    The place should be safe for us, which is the primary concern and a bit decent.

    Is it easy getting public transport at night in Goa, when we want to get back home?

    Hi there, welcome to the forum!

    Night-Life-Goa.

    Overview

    Known as the party capital of India, Goa, the smallest state, packs a punch when it comes to night life. With the number of bars and night clubs in the state, you have many options for partying and enjoying music. While single females won't have an issue with getting into bars and night clubs for the least entrance fee, stags, or males either alone or in a group of all men, are restricted entry or they need to pay a huge amount for an entrance fee. Couples also have to pay entrance although it is slightly cheaper than the entrance for males. Thus, if you're a female and want to party in Goa, you don't have much issues when it comes to safety because the crowd is of the posher ones. In this guide, we would highlight some of the best night clubs in Goa that single people can enjoy.

    Night Life in Goa for Singles

    1. Love Passion Karma or LPK - This club is located next to a river, giving it a stunning look during night time. The exteriors are equally beautiful, boasting of a rock carving design. The outdoor open-air dance floor is happening and is the preferred section of most party lovers. For those who hate sweating, there's an indoor area with air-conditioning that you can opt to dance in. For all females, entry here is free so you save some money while partying. However, for stags, entry fee is at Rs. 3,000 and for couples, entry fee is at Rs. 1,500. The dance floors are huge and can accommodate a huge crowd, which is good for people who love dancing. The music played here are mostly house, trance and Bollywood. The bar menu is extensive and although the entrance fees cover some beverages, they are usually the ordinary ones. So if you would like to try out the premium drinks, they would be for higher costs. Reaching the place can be a bit daunting, since it is located off the main road, but generally, it's safe. Just hire a cab to take you to the club and make sure you know his number so he can pick you up as well after you're done partying.

    2. Club Cubana - Located off a hillock in Anjuna, Club Cubana is not only happening, it also provides one with a great view of the city. To reach the place, you need to ride a taxi up to the foothills and from there, a jeep, owned by the management, can take you to the club itself.

    3. Mambo's - This club is one of the oldest night clubs in Baga, located in the famed Tito's Lane. Ambience is just very simple, with a medium dance floor, a bar area and seating areas. Perhaps that's what makes Mambo's a favourite amongst part lovers, its sheer simplicity lets you enjoy the place.

    4. Tito's Night Club - This is also located in Tito's Lane in Baga, a two-level club with a hip dance floor. Ambience is just very simple but crowds always flock to this place. Entry fee for women is free as well but for couples, they need to pay Rs. 1,800 and for stags, they need to pay Rs. 2,500 each. Because of the higher entry fees, the crowds here are more decent and on the higher social status side.

    5. Cohiba - Next is Cohiba which is more of a restaurant slash pub so there is no required entry fee here. If you love music but hate dancing or partying, then Cohiba is one of your best options. They usually have live bands playing every night, with a focus on retro music of the older decades. You can book a table in advance as the place is usually fully booked for walk-in clients. Ambience is very simple with just wooden chairs and tables, and a simple stage where bands perform. Food served is on the Continental cuisine which is also lip-smackingly good. Wednesday is reserved for the ladies where they get unlimited drinks, all on the house. While there's a small dance area, it'a also okay to just sit down and enjoy the good music flowing around the restaurant.

    9. Destination One - This is mainly a lounge slash restaurant overlooking the Calangute Beach. It is also more of a luxury place, so rates for food here are on the higher side.

    Conclusion

    For the single ladies who want to enjoy the night life in Goa, you don't have to worry. Most night clubs and bars allow entry of women for free or for a nominal fee. The crowd is very much safe too, owing to the higher prices for entrance given to stags. Security is often high at these places too. One downside is that not too many public transportation vehicles can be found at night. For that, you can rely on taxis and make sure that you have someone with you especially if going home at the wee hours of the night.
