COHIBA, GOA

Cohiba. I was introduced to this alfresco bar and kitchen by a dear friend Himesh Arora, who is Partner, when I was in Goa for the first edition of India Beach Fashion Week. I still remember the passion with which he described it as "a charming alfresco place with sumptuous food, cocktails and live band that will have you on your feet" — that inspired me to drive down from Park Hyatt in South Goa where I was staying to Cohiba in Sinquerim, North Goa more than an hour away — and I could feel pulsating music and a great vibe the moment I entered with friends. That night, we had the most delicious lamb chops and chilled beer… before the live band got us singing, clapping, moving on the floor for the rest of the eve!
 
Last week, I returned to Goa, and there was no doubt in my mind I would be heading to Cohiba! Himesh had texted from Bengaluru that there was a great gig on wednesday so my friends and I headed there with much anticipation. The air was warm, the mood was party and the poison was beer and tequila, accompanied by calamari platters. the band was fabulous — I say this with conviction as I am not into live retro music but it had me moving in no time; it was sheer love of their music. That said, I highly recommend visiting Cohiba when you head to Goa! Its the purr-fect place for a romantic alfresco dinner — the grill has sumptuous meat — followed by cocktails and some dancing, on the floor or under the starlit skies. Cheers!
