The legacy of one of the oldest and the most happening nightlife spot club Titos came to an end as the owner of club Tito’s announced that the club has been sold citing the constant harassment from police, PDA, CRZ, NGOs, Panchayat, and Sarpanchas, BDO, Dy Collectors.
Located in Calangute, Tito’s over the last four decades had been famous spot for nightlife in Goa. According to the club’s official website, over the years since it was established in 1971, the club has played over 87,600 hours of music, hosted 16,425 parties and on average had 90,000 visitors every month.
Richardo Joseph D’Souza, whose family owns the club wrote in a Facebook post, made the announcement “It is with sadness but with anger that we have sold our entire business in Goa. I personally have suffered the least as I was compensated adequately and even my future generations won’t have to work. I will also share some with our staff, but in the long term they now have no jobs. Can I please ask our officials to employ them as I do not ever plan any more business in Goa. By “officials” I mean all the harassing lot, like police, PDA, CRZ, NGOs, Panchayat and Sarpanchas, BDO, Dy Collectors.
“I am very grateful to certain segments of the Government like Dr Sawant, the IAS officers, ex-staff, present staff, our neighbours, all my friends and family, and the common people of Goa who all contributed to this great Brand called TITOS,” he added. The identity of the new owner has not been disclosed yet. Soon after the announcement, people were shocked and angry to find out about the situation and the reason behind the decision taken by the owner.
