Riga offers a huge variety of great bars & clubs and it would take all weekend and a lot of consumed alcohol to get through them all. We think you should visit at least four of them to become familiar with Riga`s nightlife. Riga Pub Crawl gives you an idea which are cool places worth another visit during your stay in Riga, and which places are a waste of time.
Pubs and Clubs mentioned in section below has an illustrative meaning. We do not include them all in our tour. During the pub crawl you will visit three bars and a nightclub.
There is two methods in enjoying Riga Pub Crawl:
• Leave everything in the hands of our nightlife Guides and crawl the route beloved by many tourists who have visited Riga before you.
• Inform us if you have any personal plans, destinations, and wishes (VIP table reservations, limo transfers, strip clubs, erotic massage salons, etc.) and we will make a Special program for your group.
Remember that you are not forced to stay in pubs/clubs you don`t like. Riga Pub Crawl Tour Guides are flexible and can change the route during the tour into order for you to have the best experience possible.

You know what to expect here. Tourists from England and Ireland, well-known beer brands, loud chatter and laughter and, of course football. So get yourself a pint of fresh Guinness, listen to live music, watch sports and order some classic British pub food like burgers, fish and chips, and buffalo wings.
Usually the interior consists of wooden logs and massive tables. These pubs offer a good variety of locally brewed beer and homemade Latvian wines. Definitely best places to get familiar with Latvian culture and cuisine. Enjoy folk music concerts and take part in Latvian karaoke. Old-style Latvian pubs recently have become popular with both locals and tourists from all over Europe.
Dance bars usually consist of few seperate areas with comfy seats where people chat to each other while slowly sipping beer or some coctail. With every hour closer to midnight, these bars become more lively. Local DJs do their best to make a great atmosphere. Some of the dance bars have two or even three seperate dance floors.
Don`t expect a huge variety of beers here. Rock bars are all about the music and rock stars. Set your watch back to the ‘90s, jump into the crowd and dance to the rhythm of grunge. There are also famous Latvian bands (not only rock) playing shows here, some of which can be overcrowded. Rock bars also pay tribute to Latvian rock music legends and some rooms are made into a museum.
A perfect pub crawl cannot be done without visiting the iconic cocktail lounge located on the 26th floor of Riga`s highest hotel. It’s a bit more pricey, but chic and definitely worth a visit. The entrance fee and a welcome drink are included in the price.
Nighclubs in Riga vary from mid-size venues to ones with capacity for 1,000 clubbers, with smoke machines, great audio systems, flashing lasers, go-go dancers and gorgeous bartenders. You’ll find everything to create a fascinating party. Some clubs also host various events and concerts. You have to be well-dressed to gain entrance to some of these clubs, and some ask to make a table reservation.
To some groups, the best place to finish off the pub crawl might be the stip clubs. The guide can take you to the ones that are not tourist traps.

In the last couple of years, escape rooms have become very popular among the groups of friends as the place where not only the knowledge and skills but also teamwork has been put to a test. Voted as #1 activity among the ``Fun & Games in Riga`` on travel site TripAdvisor, Mystery House offers 3 rooms of different themes and difficulty for you and your friends. Each of the room accommodates 2- 4 people, thus on a same time up to 12 people can play, divided into 3 teams competing on time for the best result and the title of best team. If drinking beer in a pub is the best activity to build up your team, we believe the escape room might be right after it.
