Aussie Backpackers Pub8
Why locals love it
This place attracts a perfect mix of fun locals, expats and travellers. They have 14 great local beers on tap, beer happy hours from 5 to 7 pm and cocktail happy hours from 7 to 8 pm. It's probably the only pub in Riga with so many cool activities going on. The pub policy is "no soccer on TV, no big groups and no tossers allowed".
Why you should visit it
Besides beer, beef jerkies, meat plates you can win in meat raffles and cocktails, there is free Foosball, plus events like sumo wrestling (yes really), beer pong every Thursday, traditional Aussie thing "Chase the Ace", different give aways and more cool stuff only fun Australians can come up with.
We've heard there's going to be a pool in the basement for the summertime so go and check it out! Plus they refuse to do Karaoke. Ever.
