Nightclub
$$$
“Without being to this hilltop Club Cubana your Goa trip is totally worthless. Drive up the hill of Arpora there is a night club with a difference, a perfect party destination! The club area is bigger than the rest. It’s a multi leveled club, the canopied loungers, fluorescent at night, a jacuzzi, poolside sitout. There are bars at every level and the cosy dance floor, music, the view, the food ( pizza is the only snack available) & drinks and the crowd that adds charm to the prefect ambience. It’s located closer to Baga and getting there is too easy. Mostly couples are allowed to get in. After paying the cover charges you can have unlimited drinks. Open from 9:30 PM till 4:00 AM.”
