Drink and Party...

I drink therefore I am. You don't need a PhD in philosophy to realise that drinking is man's greatest pleasure - you just need to consult any Latvian. Let's face it, there wasn't much else to do during Communism and old habits have a tendency to die hard. So get into the national spirit of things by hunting down some of Riga's best cafes, pubs and clubs and ordering yourself a pint or shot of Latvia's finest. There's a decent bar on every corner of the Old Town and a few of the venues here are on a par with some of the best in Europe. Check out our directory and see what the reviews say.
