A guide to nightlife in Candolim

The beachside town of Candolim is known for its relaxed, chilled out atmosphere, and the nightlife carries this through to the early hours. Whether it’s watching the stars from a beach bar or dancing with a cocktail in hand on your holidays to Goa, Candolim’s got you covered. If you know where to look, you can also enjoy more of a club atmosphere in some of the venues offering DJ sets.

Cocktails and sand at Claudina's Shack

Located on the beachfront and boasting spectacular views over the sea, Claudina’s is the place to be on Goa holidays for late night drinks on the sand. Enjoyed by locals and holidaymakers alike, the bar is open late and offers a wide array of drinks, including some famously delicious cocktails.

Dance in the sand to the music or chill out and watch the waves roll in with a cold beer. You’ll soon find out why this is such a popular place in this beachside paradise.

Laugh it up at Bending Bamboos

This charming bar and restaurant on the main strip of the town is a bit of a hidden gem. Things don’t really get going until after the sun goes down, but once the cocktails come out and the music starts playing, Bending Bamboos is one of the best bars in the area.

The lively atmosphere makes this the perfect place to make new friends and get to know the locals, and with entertainment most evenings including music and even comedians, you might find yourself coming back before you leave Candolim.

Hit the dancefloor at Club LPK

If you’re looking for something a little livelier, Club LPK will deliver. Located to the east of the town across the river, a casual dress code and welcoming vibe make this a great place to let your hair down.

Once you’ve paid the entrance fee, the drinks are free flowing at the bar, giving you the confidence to let loose on the dancefloor with music being played all night. Rest your feet in the lounge area, and you can order food at the restaurant if the dancing makes you peckish. Club LPK is one of the few venues open so late you can watch the sun rise.

Tell people you drank at 10 Downing Street

The aptly named 10 Downing Street is a British themed pub, and the decor certainly differs from other venues. Evoking a classic British bar with leather chairs and dimmed lighting, this quirky place offers family dining and live music well into the night.

Settle into your chair and enjoy the band playing jazz, western and Asian music as well as requests. With a wide variety of drinks on offer and a charming atmosphere, this place is essential for anyone looking for something a little different in Candolim.

Poolside clubbing at SinQ Beach Club

Another popular club in the area, SinQ Beach Club is a modern and lively venue offering DJ sets and unlimited drinks included in the entry fee. The spectacular poolside cabana right by the bar gives the club a classy atmosphere, or you can head inside to the air-conditioned dancefloor.

Offering sets each week with DJs from all over the world, this club draws a young and lively crowd, with the dancefloor full and the drinks flowing. The fun and dynamic atmosphere, not to mention the fabulous cocktails, makes a visit to SinQ a night to remember.
