Editor's review

A firm favourite with Latvia's alternative crowd, Depo has all the key ingredients required for a classic underground venue. Decor consisting solely of broken furniture and black paint, toilets graffitied with sexual obscenities (in various languages) and a musical programme that makes the Glastonbury line-up look like a commercial hit parade. On any given night wander downstairs to see the latest Latvian heavy metal band, Scandinavian punk rock outfit or Canadian experimental DJs shaking the walls. Meanwhile upstairs, in the cafe lounge area, Sigur Ros videos are repeated ad nauseum. Meanwhile upstairs, in the cafe lounge area, Sigur Ros videos are repeated ad nauseum. Meanwhile upstairs...

It's quite chilled and funky.

Searching for this place on the net I found a band with the same name. They should get together and have a depo at depo night.

It was a bit dead on a Wednesday, but the crowd that was there was really laid back and cool. Good alternative music. Depo is Riga's answer to Krakow's Lubu-Dubu.

I've noticed I made a mistake typing 'nihilistic'. Sorry.

Authentically grimy bar for those of a nihilistic bent. Witnessed an evening of black metal in their downstairs venue. Was a little perturbed that people tended not to applaud between songs. Is that a cultural quirk or were they all merely underwhelmed?

I left Nautilus to explore this place 'cos i head it was pretty good. Unfortunately it was half empty and the people there were alternative is a distinctly hardcore kind of way... not for the Average Joe, but i can see the appeal
