Summer House Goa, Siolim
Bask in endless summer. Nestled amidst the coconut trees by the sea - Summer House is a coastal paradise. You can watch the sun go down perched on their cushy, pink bed ( yes, it’s an actual bed ) facing the sea. Then jump off from your soft mattress and dive into dance mode once it’s dark with chill house music embracing the crisp breeze that’s rushing to meet you from the shore. They have indoor seating as well and some delicious cocktails - you can’t leave without trying. Their soon-to-come air conditioned seating will provide a refreshing respite to enjoy the gorgeous sunset views in the hot summer months. Ask Ivan, the Head Bartender to recommend you one. We’re fans of their Kokum Berry Sour and Pineapple Sage Daiquiri. A recent inclusion to their menu - the Coconator - is an exquisite blend of gin, lychee and coconut cream - and yes it tastes like a summer dream.

Prana Cafe, Mandrem

Nourish yourself with bowls of goodness at Prana Cafe and experience blissful sundowners. Prana Cafe serves a delicious soul-satisfying menu and their mixologists play alchemists with natural ingredients to craft cocktails inspired by Goa’s magical vibe. Their house special is a drink called Ocean Swell - a gin-based cocktail - and let’s just say every sip is a tidal wave of flavour. We suggest you get here by lunchtime - get comfortable in Prana’s Bali-like ambience and relish a good meal. Then park yourself in their sun loungers in the most serene part of Mandrem Beach. Start with sipping some coffee from Third Wave or try the locally brewed kombucha - The Booch and then as the sun makes its journey westward ask for the cocktail menu - we promise with the view, they go down as easy as the sun does, daily.

Olive, Vagator
Legendary for good reason. Olive Bar & Kitchen, sits primely perched on a cliff overlooking the Vagator beach. Book ahead of time to get the best seats in the house.

There’s something magical about watching the sun go down in the Arabian Sea as you sip on wine, bite into a thin-crust pizza, and hear the sax playing over the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. Laze in their hammock overlooking the beach, or sit comfortably in their white seats and admire the view with your beau. They have a new air-conditioned enclosure where you can enjoy live gigs on Sunday evenings. You’ll love the delicious Mediterranean dishes Chef Evans tastefully creates and Ash
Chandler, their multifaceted partner will make sure your visit to Olive is a memorable one. As soon as you step past their blue door, you’ll leave your blues behind, for sure.

Kiki By The Sea, Chapora Road

Kiki - is slang for a social gathering just ‘kicking back’ and chilling. That sums up what you’ll be doing here. Every corner is a grandiose backdrop for your Instagram feed. Trendy vibes meet seaside chic. Their sundowners are mesmerizing evenings with live music and captivating performers. Unlike the lyrics of ‘In my feelings’ that suggested Drake wasn’t sure if - Kiki, loved him - we are sure you'll fall head over heels in love for Kiki - by the sea. The gorgeous restaurant certainly raises the bar for sundowners in North Goa. Savour their epicurean delights, we highly recommend the Tandoor Pomfret and sip on sensual cocktails as you gaze at the hypnotic union of the Chapora River and the Arabian Sea.

Thalassa, Morjim

Thalassa serves you a slice of Greece on the beach. It is an expansive haven that unfolds like a private paradise with cabanas, inviting swings, and lazy tables sprawled across the coastal landscape. The bar menu features a string of sun-inspired cocktails. We recommend you try their Star of Goa—a symphony of feni, kokum, and curry leaves—and the Morning Sun, a ginger-infused gin blended with mango and basil sorbet. Embrace the allure of Thalassa’s legendary sundowners as you enjoy blissful golden hours on the beach.
