After the sun sets down, Goa's vibrant nightlife scene brightens up the city with every party hopper visiting the most popular beach shacks. For grasping more about the pubbing scene or rave parties at the local joints, check out at Ingo's Saturday Night Bazaar or Ajuna's Wednesday Market. If you are wary of getting out in the Goa nightlife scene for the first time, then Tito's and Club Cubana are the safest bets. They have been around for years and attract local and international partygoers alike.

Beach shacks or small beach joints are famous in Goa rather than expensive restaurants and pubs. Most of these shacks serve alcohol (especially chilled beer) and are open until late in the night.

Goa is synonymous with hippies who brought the nightlife scene back in the '70s with their arrival. Since then, it has gained momentum, assigning it a special status compared to the nightlife in other metro cities.

Rave parties or full moon parties are an accepted part of hippie culture, with the local shacks in Goa passing around the necessary information. Not many details are handed out initially to avoid police harassment. Drugs are freely made available beside stalls of snacks & tea arranged by the local women. You will get to experience "ravers" dressed in bright clothes and rave belts dancing to Psy-trance music until the wee hours of the morning.

Those who want to travel onto psychedelic journeys, beware of the Goan Police because drugs intake is legally punishable in India.
