By public opinion, unanimously, Club Cubana is the best place to party in Goa. This is one of the only places in Asia that’s open practically all night, and we mean all night with no cop trouble and no abrupt party spoilers.
Club Cubana scores a perfect ten on the crowd front. If you’re the Bollywood or even the Holywood kinds, you might just end up spotting a celebrity or two once in a way. Right in the centre of the night club is a huge swimming pool and Jacuzzi and the open air night club that’s on a hillock overlooks the coastline.
Palms decorate some of the areas in the night club which makes for a true outdoor part experience with a very spacious dance floor. Club Cubana wins points across the board, though, we’ve heard of some patrons complaining about the relatively limited dinner spread, but hey, if you are there to party, it’s the bar you want to hit!
One of the downsides of Club Cubana is the fact that it’s open only from October to April, being owned by a European family. The entry fee offers a full cover which can be redeemed for food and drinks and generally hovers around the INR 1,200 mark which, given the service is a very good price to pay.
If you’re in Goa, you have to visit this place once to get a feel of one of Asia’s most authentic poolside party experiences. The club claims a capacity of 3000 people, but don’t be surprised if you see more, sometimes it gets hard to breathe. This of course, never takes away from the energetic party experience.
Getting to club Cubana is easy enough, its located at Calangute, but we suggest you use your own vehicle. Cabs are available round the clock, but one might just get gypped if you find yourself too many drinks down and out too late.
