Cuban flavours in riga
One of Riga’s oldest bars Cuba Cafe has grown with it’s regulars, for more than 10 years it’s been city’s only Cuban-style establishment, striving to bring exotic tastes and bit more sun to the Latvian capital. If ten years ago you’d meet only Latvians, sipping on their cocktails, then now this establishment has gained a reputation also between foreign visitors. Late opening hours during the whole week and events on select nights definitely work in their favour.
If you’re in the town and looking for some live music, don’t miss Cuba’s Acoustic Thursdays with acoustic rock and reggae and all in-between, but for those looking to bust a move way before the weekend, Salsa Tuesdays might be your thing. During weekdays 2 for 1 cocktails from 17:00 to 19:00 is a way to save a buck during the lucky hour and quite possibly run into a younger student crowd kicking off their night on any given day.
