Following the Bombay High Court at Goa’s order, the authorities demolished Paradiso a night club at Anjuna.
The promoter of the club Nandan Kudchadkar is quite close to the Congress leadership in Goa and in the past too was accused of violating laws of the land for his various projects and more particularly this particular night club.
Paradiso, over the years, has over the years earned a reputation for attracting tourists as well locals who wish to let their hair down without any inhibition.
In fact the web site of club claims it to be “one of the eminent spots thronged by the hippies, is situated in the hotspot at Anjuna and Vagator Area. It is a famous discotheque primarily for the hippie crowds, who come to booze and dance till they become saturated and fall in a trance due to drug effects. “
“In other words, Paradiso Disco Goa, attracts those crowd who enjoy quite a lot of boozing and dancing all night long. It has quite a grandiose and assertive ambience in Paradiso Disco Goa,” is how it is promoted on the web site.
It is learnt that the disco was not operating for the last four or five months probably due to the case and the premises were taken on lease from the government for a period 99 years.
