The nightlife in Goa clubs has always been a special event for people. Even all night long, the party continues, and everyone enjoys themselves with the hardcore enjoyment within music, dance. Goa nightclubs are located almost everywhere in the northern part of the resorts. This is why Goa is so, and it is called the nightlife capital of India where the best parties and discos are held all around. The Goa nightlife is almost similar to the events of Pattaya and Kuta. Mostly tourists and the local youth come to visit Goa and experience the joy of trans-parties.
Since the evergreen days of the hippies, the wondrous Goa has become the world’s one of the most popular places where noisy parties are held, and the spots appear to be a vibrant nightlife. Almost every party in Goad are based on this following music- ‘’psi trance’’ (or “Goa Trance”). Every night you will see discos and raves on the beaches near the resorts. Typically, young people those who are interested in hanging out every time take part in these Goa discos. If you shift to North Goa clubs, you can even come across old hippies in nightclubs who have started living in those areas since decades.
There are other Goa parties as well. For couples, techno parties are also held and compared to the trans-party, their music sounds less impressive. Apart from these, there are varieties of discos and restaurants in Goa. The Goa trans-parties start from November and continue up to March, between this period, the parties are merely a non-ending process. For party enthusiasts, it is a good choice of choosing the best party events within this peak season.
Below under I have listed all the party clubs and discos in Goa and have rated them according to my choice and experience:
1. Hilltop, Vagator:
Hilltop is one of the most common, yet legendary nightclubs in Goa and lovers mostly prefer it. Every Sunday at about 5 p.m., the party starts to show off. In this club of North Goa, you can enjoy yourself with your partner dancing under palm trees in neon light with the music of Goa Psi trance. Everything seems to be perfect to me expect the charges of the entire arrangement.
People often write reviews that during the New Year, the clubs charge somewhere between 5000 rupees.

2. Curlies, Anjuna beach:
You know what; Curlies is the best nightclub to me. It is located in the southern part of Anjuna beach, and this is the only club where trans-parties start at night and continues up to the next morning. During the morning, you can relax on the beaches of Goa, take a sunbath, swim, and feel refreshed. As the sun seems to set off, the excitement starts from then on. Their institution has a vast variety of cuisines, and at the top of that, there is a beautiful terrace to lie down, relax comfortably on pillows and mattresses provided by them. There is a scheduled timing of parties in Goa, the legendary psi trance is held on Thursday and Monday, and techno parties are owned and so on other music genres. The most exciting fact is anyone can enter into this club free; there is no charge for the entrance.
There is a recommendation for people those who are interested in trans-parties in Goa; you can carry along flyers with the upcoming party schedules and head over to the Titos Lane, one of the main streets of Goa. The brochures contain the proper address and the timing of the parties, which can be shown to the taxi drivers for getting entry into the right place in time.
During the dawn, one thing just surprisingly shocked me. When the party mood starts to lighten up in the Anjuna Club, one day I noticed that within a few meters distance a woman was selling food items and right under the stall, her kids were sleeping on the concrete covering themselves up with blankets.
