Arpora, coastal village lies very close to the Northern Goa. Let’s find the attractions of Arpora.
Arpora’s Exclusive Saturday Night Market
The Saturday Night Market has something for everyone and it makes the most of the pleasant Goan evenings at Arpora. With roundabout of lanes upon lanes of kiosks selling everything for convenience this sprawling market is divided into three main areas: the lower, the central and the upper fields.
The Lower Field of kiosks, features hoards of local Indian merchants selling pashminas, carpets, spices, hammocks, embroidered cushions and more, as well as several international designer and kiosks selling fashionable apparel, accessories, bags, belts and other exciting grabs.
The Central Field at the heart of the market features the central concert stage, beer & wine bars & food stalls with several of Goa’s popular restaurants as well as offers chocolates fountains, sushi, gyros and more.
The Upper Field mounting up the small hillock towards the back of the market, features popular kiosks of international designers, a few local merchants and the Boutique House Bar at the top right that serves fresh fruit cocktails, live DJ’s & a magic Tequila cocktail stand!
It is set amid the lush green hills just off the main Anjuna – Arpora road. High on the hill, suitably dubbed for “party in the sky”, and the clients are greeted with a hand painted ultraviolet backdrop of the twelve Zodiac signs.
Mirrors, along with kerosene Tikki torches and fifty large candles spread across the outer terraces of the club grant an ambience that warms guests to their natural environs against the dashes of tiger print and beach chic white leather couches, loungers and cabanas that exude elegance.
Purple and red lighting, all eco friendly, create a soothing ambience amidst coconut trees and plants, whilst steps, ledges and pillars are lined with paint that glows from the UV lights that blanket Club Cubana.
