Visit to Goa is never quite complete without enjoying its nightlife 🙂 Last time it was Club Cabana, and this time around, we thought of doing some pub hopping in Tito’s lane.
After dropping parents off at home, four of us reached Tito’s around 10 p.m. Entry fees per couple is INR 1000 and you can redeem it against any F&B. The place looks beautiful with a variety of seating. The decor is charming with perfect lighting, elegant furniture and looks like a perfect place to unwind. Dance floor is in a separate section, if you want to shake a leg.
We ordered for mojito, dry martini, LIT, champagne cocktail, masala peanuts and nachos. I had high hopes from this place and was shocked to discover that all our drinks were dreadful. How could a cult place like this mess up classics like mojito and LIT! Nachos were out-of-the-box kind and were served with ketchup instead of salsa and a yogurt based dip instead of sour cream. Masala peanuts were good, but we were quite disappointed with the place and decided to go to Cape town cafe next. I’m not recommending Tito’s to anyone, nor am I going back here on my next trip.
Cape town cafe is a lovely open place in the same lane and entry is free here. By now I and Mr. H were yearning for good long islands and ordered them for all four of us along with some veg tempuras. They also had 1+1 offer on drinks till 12 am. LIT was stiff, but delicious and I loved it. Veg tempuras were great too. The portion was pretty good, and the veggies were fried to perfection in a light batter. We went to the dance floor, which again is a separate section here. The music was upbeat and we danced for a while on the almost empty dance floor. Do try out this place for its drinks and food.
We next went to Mambo’s. Here the entry fees was INR 1000 per couple, but it could be redeemed only against selected drinks. We went straight to the dance floor, where the DJ was playing everything from Bon Jovi to Ed Sheeran. We came out after a while and ordered for a couple of beers and a mojito. Drinks were alright here. Do try out this place for its foot-tapping numbers.
I suppose all these places were sparsely populated when we visited, since this is a lean season. After Mambo’s, we picked up some delicious chicken and veg frankies from Tibb’s Frankie before calling it a day.
