Why locals love it

Now located in an incredibly beautiful historic building in Riga called "Reiterna Nams", Latvia’s first and only rock café hosts many local music events and concerts (not only rock), parties and makes sure we’re not hungry either!

Why you should visit it

The idea itself to make a Latvian rock cafe was born in the 90ies and it did - in the local "wind city" Liepāja. Nowadays it has moved to us - Rigans and we are extremely proud of it as Liepāja is considered the city where Latvian rock was born as well. This cafe truly is LEGEN-wait-for-it-DARY! Legendary!

Special tip

Great food in the restaurant as well as in the fast-food section.

This place is nothing to do with Latvian music. It is far as it can get from that. And it has almost nothing to do with rock music. This is just a name, nothing more. There are better places to go for Latvian music or rock music. I don't see the point of lying. Some Latvian music or rock music once a year does not count. There are a lot of people going there, sure, but there are a lot more better places to go for music. But if you are looking for party and don't care for the music, this is the place where you can go. In my experience - a lot of aggressive and drunk people, I just like more calm places. There is a lot of things to see and do in Riga.
