Shot Cafe is one of the best bar in Riga’s Old Town if you are into your shot-drinking is and here most definitely you will find any shot you may even think about. This is a great bar with great, friendly staff and a fun atmosphere mainly serving shots (hence the name) but you can get your usual drinks here too but you might get some funny looks from bar tenders if you don’t order a shot! You should try the traditional latvian “ābolu pīrāgs” or “apple pie” in english (this is a shot of vodka and apple juice topped with cinnamon), a local favourite, for only 1Ls.
The music is also great too – they play everything from James brown to Prince to Sista Nancy. We tried to leave twice but every time we got outside the DJ would play another great song so we would have to go back in and dance. Word of warning though, the toilet stinks! On the bright side is that this place is always open late and even on Sunday when pretty much everything is either closed or is shut down at 9, this place is still working after 1 am!
In summer time the tables spread onto the plaza on the street and a meal basking in the sun is truly amzing; servings of food include Goulash and Burritos. A great place to spend an evening dancing, although we must admit that Shot Cafe Riga is not the cheapest place in town.
Happy Hours are happening daily from 19.00 till 21.00 and 12.00 till 01.00. On Sundays they are all day.
