Riga is the city that never sleeps, and this statement is especially true in the summer, when the sun so briefly sets. Riga nightlife starts around 8-9 PM when people begin to gather in restaurants and cocktail bars. Night-clubs open around 10-11 pm. Generally, girls fill the nightclubs first as there is often no entrance fee or discounted fees for women until midnight. After midnight the real party starts!
Entrance fee in the most popular clubs start at 5 Ls, and 7-10 Lats in striptease clubs. After you pay the entrance fee, you will receive a visible or invisible neon stamp on your hand, so you can leave and have fun elsewhere, than return without having to pay again.
If you don’t want to go clubbing, just take a walk around Old Riga. On warm nights, the streets are as crowded as during the day and all the outdoor cafes in Dome square are full. We hope you’re lucky enough to find a table!
