Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992
Tourism info


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.

Continue to Koya— 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).
