right at the very southern end of palolem you have “silent noise” party , the saturday night weekly all night headphones party . its an excellent club night with 3 djs playing house/classics/r+b~funk~disco on 3 seperate channels . ive got pics from a previous visit on my blog if you use search box ‘silent disco’ . that and the amazing leopard valley are the 2 main party nights in south goa .

after this went for sunset strawberry daquiri’s on patnem beach 5 mins moped ride from palolem beach . wanted to try tantras this time . was nice fresh fruit but too heavy on the lime and too light on the rum to be ‘the’ daq champion . still enjoyable however .

for our evening meal we where gagging to revisit a personal favourite of ours , ourem ’88 in palolem . superb quality food every time , advance booking is essential they dont have many tables and turn away 3 times the amount of people every evening . the couple from england who run it are great hosts too . bloody lovely ! search ourem in the box on this page for more entries for here . the music is always on point here too , a random selection of coolness ie disco , 70’s , synth pop , 90s , the jam might be played back to back with a motown track then into blondie folowed by andy weatherall then james brown , anything goes but always an enjoyable eclectic selection . bravo !
