Climb up a short flight of steps off the swimming pool to a place under the white dome, located above the restaurant…you have reached Peace, The Bar of the Park on Holiday Beach. Passion, enthusiasm and a spectacular view of the beach and sea…..the electric surroundings will have you immersed in. But it is the Bar menu that offers more in terms of immersion, rather than the surroundings. The mixologist with his wealth of experience uses premium quality spirits in the drinks with fresh fruits, fresh fruit purees and his own version of atomic and molecular cocktail. In simple words the drinks are prepared as the drinks should be!! Try the signature cocktail Sunshine (sugar cane juice, mint, ginger, white rum, dark rum, egg white), come rain or sun the combo of ganna and rum adds to the experience. Or try a Beer Mojito (beer, dark rum, mint, lime juice, jaggery), many local favourites which include beer, rum and jiggery. No need to do a Bloody Mary…try the Bacon Mary instead (Bacon infused vodka, orange juice, Lime mix). More citrusy in flavour but it is worth a try. Is this place only for spirits? The soft drinkers can avail of non-alcohol cocktails, yes they call them cocktails. Spiced Pine (green chili, caramelized pineapple, honey, mint, fresh pine apple juice) for the people who like their drink to be spicy, Mango Byte (Vanilla ice cream , cranberry juice , mango pulp) for the youngsters at heart. And as the night breeze blows across the ocean get frozen with Haryali (mint, lime juice, chaat masala, honey, blended to be frozen). Its refreshingly peaceful. And it is not only drinks that drive away the blues…every night caters to different events. HELP night…no not the Beatles songs but for hospitality people (Hospitality People Love Parties), or Ladies Night or Rockstar Night which promotes upcoming bands, Karaoke Nights. Let the wind blow through your hair at peace with yourself, that's what Peace is all about.

Butter Lounge in Candolim is one of the popular nightspots in Goa. Open throughout the year on select days, one cannot miss it as it is strategically located on the main Candolim road and has a huge mock saxophone right outside its entrance. There are three party zones here, two alfresco and one indoors. Wood rules here and is all over: walls, ceilings, bar cabinets, tables and chairs. During the evening, the place doubles up as a sports bar with a giant TV screen beaming live sporting action from around the world. But it's the DJ music that ensures the young, hip set come here to party. Butter Lounge is the venue for some top television jockey contests. Though a little overpriced and the food nothing to rave about, this is a great location for some loud music and dancing late into the hours of the night.
