The Big Tap is a lively drink and dine destination tucked in one of the by lanes in Goa's Central Tourist District. Whether you're in the mood to shake a leg or savor a scrumptious multi-cuisine spread accompanied by your favourite tipple, The Big Tap delivers!

THE PLACE

The Big Tap occupies a vast space in the heart of the action in Goa, a few meters away from Baga creek. The airy wooden interiors with teal accents feature quirky decor elements adorning its bare-brick walls. Warm lights illuminate the warehouse-theme establishment peppered with retro-style artefacts.

Let The Big Tap's vibrant atmosphere embrace and entertain you on an evening out! Be seated in any of the well-designated 
multiple sections that includes a mezzanine for striking intimate conversations. The large open bar is a highlight, while musicians perform on an elevated platform at the opposite end. The inviting dancefloor area at the center of it all is at your disposal, should you choose to let your hair down!

THE RESTAURANT

Chef Kenneth Dabreo helms the kitchen dishing out a sumptuous menu of fusion tapas. The Whet Plates complement an array of beverages with inspired creations such as Vindaloo Prawns, King Prawns and Eggplant Pakora, Goan Chorizo Cocktail Samosas, beer-battered Calamari, and Sizzling Rib Bits among others. The delectable Kenny's Chicken Wings served with Feni-Kashmir chilly infused sauce is a chef's special. Sample an assortment of smoky tikkas and wash it down with various beers. Vegetarians can relish highlights such as Onion Rings and Janglee Potatoes.

The main course is a mix of Continental, North-Indian and Goan classics including The Steak Classic, beer-battered Fish n Chips, Saag Chicken, Baingan Aloo, Chicken Cafreal, Prawn Caldin and Pork Vindaloo. Off the menu and on request, Dabreo can whip up an appetizing Bhuna Rice to go along! Occasionally, you'll find also him belting out tunes from the Brat Pack era, which has led to his nickname 'The Singing Chef'.

THE STORY

The Big Tap is the brainchild of Suraj Shah and Dicky Datta who initially opened 3D’s in Baga in 2015. The popularity of the place soon had them looking for a bigger venue and hence the birth of The Big Tap.

Both accomplished musicians, it was their love for the art that brought them together twenty years ago in Assam. They dreamed of a venue that brought good food, beer and great music together all under one roof, whcih is how The Big Tap realised!
