This season, the gourmet and leisure trend is the small industrial neighbourhood by the Daugava river with a yacht parking, families with children playing outside and fancy club-restaurants with a river view. Just perfect for urban summer outside lunches, dinners, cocktails and dancing. Andrejsala is located right after the Art Nouveau/embassy district, so you will not need any special transportation, just enjoy a nice walk through the well-known architectural masterpieces and aristocratic restaurants in the direction of the river.
The first place on the list is EXPORT RESTAURANT (1a Eksporta iela), located right in the middle of the
yacht pier. It has a cosy fireplace, decorative wood
inlays, mainly a fish menu. After filling your belly,
head to the fancy AQUA LUNA club/restaurant, for occasional live music or DJ’s
soulful house on Fri and Sat.

a black and geometrical restaurant in a revamped
yacht garage. If you feel the kick
of misanthropy, drop by at SPIRITS & WINES
wonder storage-shop, for your very own bottle of
Grand Cru single malt American Whiskey or Scottish
Whisky bottle. For
the late Italian dinner and cocktail head to NAPLES interconnected with glamourous
FIRST DACHA club (4a Andrejostas iela).
