I'm taking my wife to Riga in September. Any pubs to avoid and any recommendations

Answer the question

3 answers

Avoid pubs on Kaļķu street 22 and 24.
Recommendations - depends on what you are looking for. Folkklubs Ala, as previously recommended, is a good place. A lot of popular places outside the old town. Valmiermuiža beer on Aristida Briana 9 and Labietis microbrewery (same building but entrance from backyard).

Ala (http://www.folkklubs.lv/en) and Rock Cafe (http://www.rockcafe.lv/) are great and loved by many locals.

Avoid the usual touristy places, especially if they have people on the street telling you get "free drinks" if you go there.
