The story of Hill Top began 30 years ago at the time of the hippie heydays in Goa. Founded and owned by Steve D'souza, Hill Top is now run as family business with Steve recruiting his DJ son, Starling, to be a part of the management. In its original avatar, Hill Top was a small restaurant furnished with a few benches. Today, with its neon palm grove of glow-in-dark coconut trees, psychedelic art and its vast open playground for Goa's spanerse party goers, Hill Top is arguably Goa's most revered fixture of its still prevalent trance scene. The weekly Sunday parties (despite the strictly enforced 10pm curf), and Christmas & New Year marathons draw crowds from across the globe, to share what remains of Goa's subversive culture. Through the years, Hilltop has served as a platform to the world's biggest artists as well as fresh budding talents, playing a key formative role in the development of trance music and Goa nightlife culture in general.
