Goa Nights is a contemporary Indian tapas bar and restaurant featuring a unique mix of classic and modern Indian cuisine with Goan twists. Located in the center of Taipa Village, Goa Nights is home to a bohemian bar boasting a variety of energizing craft cocktails mastered by acclaimed bartender and mixologist Chetan Gangan, who was the first runner up of the Bacardi Legacy 2017 and winner of the Belvedere Vodka Relearn Natural cocktail competition the same year.
This 3-storey restaurant boasts a wide selection of bar snacks and large plates to go along with its signature cocktails, which collectively tell the story of the voyage journey of Vasco de Gama, the first European explorer who reached India (Goa) by sea. This inspiration behind the 9 distinctive cocktails are associated with the 9 cities in the discovery route of Vasco during his trip from Portugal to Goa, from which the restaurant’s name is derived. Each cocktail carries a spice, fruit or spirit from Vasco’s discovery, and is numbered according to each city shown on the map.
The establishment of Goa Nights contributes a new addition to the restaurant scene of Taipa Village by offering an innovative dining experience to local and international visitors. This also complements Macao’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

About Chetan Gangan
Born in Mumbai, Chetan Gangan trained at the Sahara Star before joining the Mumbai leg of London’s Michelin-starred Hakkasan as assistant bartender. In 2015, his acumen landed him as a regional finalist at the Bacardi Legacy competition; the following year, Gangan set up bars and cocktail programmes around the country including at Terttulia, Mumbai, the Stage Bar (Hyatt Regency, Chandigarh), and, notably, the much-lauded Ek Bar in New Delhi.
Gangan then joined acclaimed restaurant Masque in Mumbai, where he is currently head mixologist. His are the hands behind constant experimentation with new ingredients, flavours, and styles. In line with Masque’s food philosophy, he focuses on using seasonal ingredients to create drinks more ‘elixir’ than ‘cocktail’. His expertise and deft hand behind the bar lends finesse to Masque’s cocktail programme, perfectly complementing the degustation menus from the kitchen, and has garnered much praise since opening day. Gangan was also first runner up at Bacardi Legacy 2017, and winner of the Belvedere Vodka Relearn Natural cocktail competition the same year.
