Party in Pārdaugava
Why locals love it
Any new addition to the left bank (Pārdaugava District) venues is always welcome, especially if they feed you well and on the cheap during the day and help you get tipsy in the evening. Veldze is both a lunch place by the day and a party spot on the weekend nights.
Why you should visit it
With laid back atmosphere and modern design in best Riga's traditions a la late 2010s, Veldze truly quenches (the literal meaning of the name, if it was a noun) your thirst and hunger, while you're at it. Soups, burgers and all in between, they also cater for vegetarians which always is a good sign.
Ask for local craft beer. Period.
