RIGA THIS NIGHT music clubs


ALA (The Cave)


19 Peldu iela, mob. tel. 27796914, 12.00–01.00, Wed, Thr, Fri 12.00–05.00, Sat 14.00–05.00, Sun 14.00–01.00. www.folkklubs.lv See also Dining: Latvian. Ala is a phenomenal portal into the Latvian ethnical cul- ture. You can see that locals and ex-pats are extremely deliberate in preserving and carrying on the traditions, and, what is more important: it is mega-fun and conta- gious. From the first moment you will be amazed by the mass dancing and singing, in the blink of an eye you will find yourself dancing on stage in ethnical costume. This Latvian/Australian owned + operated tavern offers live Latvian and world music, 28 only local microbrew- ery beers on draught. Have loads of traditional fun! TEÅTRA BÅRS


26 Låçpléßa iela, tel. 67282662, 18.00–last guest, Sat, Sun 17.00–last guest. www.teatrabars.lv In contrast to the Teåtra restoråns, Teåtra bårs invites more late-evening clients. Crazy, close-up talking, dan- cing and drinking! Music varies from Latvian and Russian 60s, 70s and/or 80s movie soundtracks, to down tempo or new indie/Britpop bands. Completely local. TROMPETE (The Trumpet)


24 Peldu iela, mob. tel. 25745299 12.00–24.00, Thr, Fri, Sat 12.00–02.00. fb.com/trompeteLV See also Dining: European. An absolute music and wine&dine essential. The most trendy, groovy, jazzy live shows by local and interna- tional jazz stars, who are actually lining up to play here on weekends. More than a jazz club, it offers a creative platform for music and gastronomy. For now, we can’t name any other establishment that has managed to suc- cessfully combine a top location, excellent gastronomy and absolutely marvellous repertoire, while being incred- ibly anti-snobbish. The place you always want to return to


soviet


AUSTRUMU ROBEÛA (Eastern Border) 8 Vågnera iela, tel. 67814202, 15.00–23.00. Enjoy your lagman (spicy soup), but be polite Stalin is watching you! Decorated with Soviet memorabilia, this restaurant might be a tad intimidating, but don’t worry: a shot of vodka does miracles. Also have live music and theatre performances! Beloved expat hangout. CHOMSKY


82


68 Låçpléßa iela, 16.00–24.00, Fri, Sat 16.00–03.00. Closed Sun. fb.com/chomskybar Named after the left-wing philosopher, the bar brings you to some poor Russian intelligentsia alcoholic’s apartment. Scratched, blemished, broken, smudged to the core. The place where local intelligence drinks brutally, speaks loudly, sometimes dances to the tunes of non- existing melody. Start by ordering their special 10 y.o. Matusalem rum, from an introvert bartender with bitter eyes and a tattoo saying ‘klusu’ (quiet) on his


right arm. No food, very strange music, poetry read- ing/performances occasionally, Tarkovsky anti-utopia atmosphere. LENINGRAD


4 K. Valdemåra iela, mob. tel. 29915049, 15.00–last guest. www.leningrad.lv Some friends took babushka’s old furniture, mixed it all in a natural way and created a soviet squat in the way the citizens here remember it. The atmosphere is com- pletely comfy because it is a party-flat, where visitors are neighbours or friends and you are recognised as one of them. Ask for superior Ukrainian vodka, famous bottled beer Zhigulevskoe or local pearl—non-filtred beer Brengu¬u.
