Fantastic Cafe(bar) - Maples - Hard Rockin Cafe - Great for people watching on the Calangute Rd. Great Place to meet fellow travellers and people watch.
The staff are fantastic and very friendly.
Theres also a place right next door which is of similar style....but I became a "regular" at Maples instead.
If you visit Panjim try & find Oscars bar.dont really know how we stumbled on it.but the oldish guy who i think owns it was just fast asleep and a young lad served us.its were the locals hang out after a busy day!! try it.
I don't understand where the 'hard rocking' element of the name comes from. This is a tiny bar that has a few tables out on the pavement. There is no live music nor anything like that nor indeed any capability to do anything except food / drink and sit down. There is another very small bar called Bonnie Inn right next door that has exactly the same set up and also the tables and chairs are exactly the same as Maples so there must be some sort of relationship between the 2 places.
This is the current bar to be seen in! Its got an external area with two bars, with lots of seating areas, plus an aircon internal area/come nightclub. Lots of fun people, prices are a bit steep, but thats what you pay for the fun!
Dress Code: Smart casual
Kingfisher is the best local beer of India. It's a popular branded name. Another local beer, Kings beer with the cool, fat bottle does not taste good.
Indoors and outside tables and chairs. The usual inexpensive drinks. Many European ex-pats
Dress Code: As in many places in Goa, Anything goes as long as you are clothed
