Anyone ever been?
Im off there on a stag do on Monday and looking for stuff to do, especially anywhere to get a bet on!
Defo going to The skylight bar, churchills cigar lounge and hiring the limo with the strippers,
anyone recommend anything else?
Never ben there but please report back, I'm hopefully visiting next year!
Have a great time
I went earlier this year for a stag do. I would read the british embassy guide on bars NOT to go to. There are all sorts of horror stories regarding getting ripped of in dodgy places but if you keep to the main areas its fine.
It's worth rembering that a lot of the local lads aren't too keen on the Ryan air sex toursist which has flooded into the city over the last couple of years. We had a gang intorduce themselves to us for a 'chat' while our tutu wearing stag was completing a challenge.
The sky bar you mention in the centre of town is definetly worth a visit and in the basement of the building is one of the best casinos in riga, or so they told us. It was pretty good and once the main poker tourny finished they let us hire a table for a private tourny. The even gave us free drinks while playing, and hiring the table was pretty cheap.
We went shooting on the friday with an assortment of scary things and quad biking the following day. I'm not convinced the health and safety executive works to the same inhibiting standards as within the uk so decent insurance might be worth while.
Have fun, i think we did from the photos.
Went a few years back for a "work" weekend... not sure what it's like now but assuming it hasn't changed much definitely recommend the Skyline bar (especially for the cocktails and the view) - great for a few drinks before heading for the clubs.
EDIT just realised you posted on the 20th rendering this recommendation useless. :-)
