Bar “De Puta Madre” is a not a top spot in most of Riga guide-books, which could be a management decision, however we found it to be a really fun venue! Located just a little away away off the main Old Town routes on the Mārstaļu str, it is a well-known place among locals, hence they make a majority of guests, it still remains a hidden spot for foreigners. However if you happen to be a tourist looking for a crazy weekend party, you can find it at DPM (as it is called short by the locals). Its house party atmosphere and drinks at almost store prices would definitely make you and your wallet happy, for instance Mojito would cost you 3 Ls, Bloody Mary only 2 Ls or Sex On The Beach just 2 Ls. Beer is always around 1-1.5Ls range (it could be even cheaper depending on happy hour). The bar is spread between 3 floors – basement bar, ground floor bar/chill out/cafe with a wooden saloon-like furniture and a dance floor on the top level. On the very the top floor is located a hookah (water-pipe/shisha) place with a very friendly bar tender. The crowd is mainly made of students, young professionals and other happy folks who can’t leave those crazy university days behind. The best part of the place is its downstairs bar, where the main craziness happens. Sometimes girls get on the bar and start dancing, while bar tenders play their best tunes, turn off the lights and ignite the shots. Trust us, this looks fantastic! In summer time they open a terrace where you can enjoy those wam nights in a good company. A little reminder – be nice with the bouncers at the entrance, sometimes they might not be in the best mood after a hard shift.
