Action Stations!

Bobsleigh - Just awesome! There aren't many chances in life to ride a bobsleigh down an actual Olympic run. Seriously breath-taking.
Retro Rally - Get behind the wheel of some amazing pimped up Fiat Pandas. Solve the clues and complete the course and make the other stags eat your dust.
Beer Bike - Saddle up on your own pedal-powered, mobile pub. Pour your own pints as you tour the city streets.
Target Shooting - Get your itchy trigger fingers on some serious heavy metal. You and the guys will shoot semi-automatics like the legendary AK-47. "Yippee-kay-aye mother hugger!"

Best Bars in Riga

You'll probably want to get some practice in with a water sport before a night out in Riga as there's enough liquor here to swim in!

Old Town is home to all the best Riga bars and in the evening it is busy, bustling and a guaranteed memory-making night. It's the epicentre for booze and full of cool drinking destinations, with bars often popping up in disused warehouses or factories. There are tonnes of outdoor seating areas with continental canopies to shade you when the sun comes out. An area that shouldn't be missed is Vermane Garden which is home to brew-pubs and music-themed bars so every stag can feel at home when it's time to dance!

Where to Visit in Riga

Districts

The Old Town is definitely the place to be. It's the city's main party district and is stacked with loads of bouncing bars and nightclubs. There are also a ton of great places to eat, too, to fuel up ahead of an evening on the town. Yes, forget about walking miles to get to the next bar - everything will be a stag-friendly stroll away, so you can spend less time stomping and more time partying!

Must see...

Veranes Garden is the city's largest public park and the perfect place to rest your hangovers and, lizard-like, let the sun's rays gradually warm you back to life. Another great spot is the Town Hall Square which has a nice vibe, it is the perfect location for a team photo. The bars aren't the cheapest here and a bit tourist-heavy but there are plenty of great watering holes in the surrounding streets.

Pub Trivia

'Gonoreja' (yes the J is pronounced like a 'Y') is not the most attractive Latvian Girls names. "Have you met my girlfriend Gonoreja?"
Nearly 1/3rd of Latvia's entire population lives in Riga while major migration means only 45% residents are Latvian.
Hot Babes! Latvia produces more fashion models per capita than nearly any other country in the world.

A taste of Riga

A Taste of Riga

Eats - If you need some proper man food then head to Street Burgers. These guys really don't do things by halves and these stunning towers of meat, cheese and soft buns will keep all the guys happy. They even do a 'Breakfast Burger', genius!
Meza Street 4a, Riga 1050, Latvia
Drinks - At a whopping proof of 90% Riga's Black Balsam could strip the fake tan off a TOWIE babe from 20 paces. It's a blend of natural ingredients mixed with pure vodka and possibly the Devil's bathwater "It burns! It BURNS!!".
FYI Drink prices are on average half of those back in the UK. "No I'll get these, you get them when we get home..."

Getting Around Riga

Riga isn't the biggest capital city but that just makes it easier to get around. The city's best bars, restaurants and clubs are all easy to reach on foot so there's no need to try and squeeze 15 stags (and potentially fatal clouds of aftershave) into one taxi. If you do want to travel further afield get yourselves eTickets to hop on trams, buses and trolleybuses whenever the mood takes you. But if you're feeling fit you can hire a 'Sixt' public bike for just a few Euros, which are dotted around the city (like London's Boris bikes).

Riga Stag Do Trip Tips!

Getting to Riga

Flights

You can get direct flights from a number of UK airports including the London airports, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Glasgow. Be sure to check well in advance for availability and for the best deals.

Getting from Riga Airport to the City Centre

The city centre is situated 10 kilometres from the airport, so you can be in the city and partying in roughly twenty minutes if you're taking a taxi or using hassle-free airport transfers. Buses from the airport will naturally take a little longer, but provide a cheaper alternative.

Local Customs and Tipping Culture

In Riga, as with most European countries, it's standard to tip about 10 per cent in restaurants provided the service and food was good.

Price of Beer in Riga

Whilst prices will vary, you can get a beer for around €3 euros from most bars - be sure not to just settle on the first place you come across, though, look around and gauge the prices.
