Music and coffee
Upe Record Store8
Why locals love it
It has found their niche as the largest vinyl and popular/sub-popular music store in Riga. With sub-popular we mean an amazing selection of blues, jazz, avant garde, world music etc. - everything you can't get that easily. Every CD/DVD/LP in your hands feels exclusive like the taste of wine and coffee there.
Why you should visit it
"The River" is more than a great CD/DVD/Vinyl store with a smart taste in music, boasting a great wine selection and coffee. Drop by for an intelligent conversation with people who love their trade. We'd say in some way "Upe" recreates the feel from Cameron Crowe's “Almost Famous” movie about rock'n'roll.
The one and only record store where you can have a coffee, sit down and enjoy the music before you actually decide to buy it. Inspirational indeed.
