The goal of the Riga pub crawl is to allow you to discover the real nightlife of Riga, full of unique pubs, endless varieties of drinks and a fantastic atmosphere. Join us, and we will take you to some of the best pubs in Riga that you would unlikely find on your own. Usually, the pub crawl starts at 10 pm. At around 1 am you are entering the last venue which is a local dance club. The guide stays with a group for around half an hour. On weekends, the club closes at 6 am – 8 am (depending on how many people are there at that time), so you have plenty of time to show your moves on a dancefloor.
Usually, the bar tours at 10 pm we start at the traditional Latvian pub (September-May) or some popular beer garden (June-August). If you book bar tour in a daytime, most of the pubs can be almost empty, thus if you book in summer, we can start with the beer garden. At the other time of the year, we can offer a visit to the Czech beer brewery where you have a short guided tour followed by a beer tasting or we can start a tour in some bar if you do not mind that there won`t be many visitors.
The tour visits several different bars and pubs in Riga, more specifically the areas of Doma Square, St. Peter's Church, Peldu street and Kalku Street. The route is subject to change daily, and we cannot guarantee the inclusion of a specific route or pub. However, the bar tour shall always finish at one of the local dance clubs in the old quarter of the town.
The tour starts at 10 pm and we plan to get you to the final venue at around 1 AM since it is the best time to start clubbing. The nightclubs stay open until 6 AM, to make sure you enjoy the thrilling Riga nightlife!
In case a participant of the crawl becomes overly intoxicated or behaves aggressively, such person shall be excluded from taking part in the rest of the pub crawl and shall not be refunded. Dress code (no sports clothes) is essential for the clubs. To participate in the pub crawl, you must be over 18 years old. If you are on a Riga Stag Do, we kindly ask you to leave the costume for daytime activities. Most of the pubs and clubs have the policy to forbid entry in Stag Do costumes. We want everyone to have an unforgettable night with us, but our mission is to show you the nightlife of Riga, NOT to get you drunk. Red Fox Tours accepts no liability for injury or damage to your person or property.
The habits of visiting pubs and bars in Riga differ from the pub culture of the UK or Western Europe. You would find very seldom the situation when locals are visiting pub right after work. An exception may be summer and beer gardens but apart from that, the pubs at around 5 pm – 7 pm are almost empty. People start to show up at bars around 9 pm, 10 pm. No one is rushing to the bars or clubs, because everyone knows that no bar or club closes at 2 am or 3 am. That is the right `party time` for locals. If you start your first glass of beer at 8 pm, you must be a real `party animal` to have the strengths to stay in `party on` mode until 5 am, 6 am. Yes, that is the time, when clubs end their work. There are venues which finish the party at 7 am or 8 am on Saturday or Sunday morning. That very much depends on how many people are still willing to party there. That is also the reason why the Riga pub crawl starts at 10 pm. Trust us, you won`t miss anything by starting at 10 pm and entering the club at 1 am will give you some 5 hours on a dancefloor.
