Riga is one of the most visited cities in Eastern/Northern Europe because of its rich history, delicious food, and lovely people. That is why there are a lot of different pubs all around Riga in which you can relax, try some local beer, and experience the best of Riga’s nightlife.
Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs is the folkiest place in Riga. There are special nights every week with events such as traditional dance or folk music. If you want to experience Latvian folk culture, look no further. On top of that, there are 16 different types of beer on tap in this pub.
Labietis Brewery is an underground pub, serving the best beer in the city. If you like relaxing in a friendly atmosphere and meeting local hipsters, this place is where you have to go.
You can already guess from the name that Rock Cafe is the place where fans of rock gather to drink a pint of beer, dance on the tables, and sing karaoke. The food and drinks are cheap, and the staff is very helpful, so you must visit this place when in Riga if you’re a fan of rock music.
Egle is an open-air bar and restaurant, so it is the best to visit during the summer when the weather in Riga is hot and sunny. You can listen to live music at Egle in the evening and taste some of the most delicious traditional Latvian food and drinks.
HHC, Hardcore Hangover Club, is one of the favorite places among young locals who, as the name suggests, love to party hard. The beer is cheap, especially during happy hour, and the staff is very friendly. The fact that this bar stays open till 6am on the weekend makes it even more hardcore.
Bierhaus is a bar with longstanding Bavarian traditions, where you can taste a wide variety of brewed beers. Also, the German food served at Bierhaus is amazing, and the interior is spacious and bright.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.

I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
