Romantic Riga

27 Jan 2020

Activities: enjoy a day at the spa with a swimming pool, saunas, steam rooms, heated lounges and a salt room at the Hedonic SPA & Wellness centre in the five-star Grand Poet Hotel by Semarah. The cinema is an oldie, but a goodie for a date and you can choose romantic old world ambience at Splendid Palace on Elizabetes (you can bring in drinks from the adjoining Tinto wine bar, which is also a romantic spot for a drink).

Gifts: for traditional Latvian jewellery try Baltu Rotas next to the entrance of St. Peter’s Church, but if you’re willing to spend more on contemporary pieces that are more like wearable art then visit Putti on Mārstaļu. The Flower Market on Tērbatas is of course the best place to buy a bouquet, but if you’d prefer a gift that’s more risqué, visit SexyStyle at Barona 33A. For exclusive locally-made chocolates try Rienzi across the street from the opera.

Drinks:  For classic cocktails with a Japanese twist and a chic contemporary ambience try COD at Tērbatas 45, but for excellent drinks created by professional mixologists not far from Old Riga try the trendy Cynic Bar next to the Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija.

Dinner: for a fantastic culinary experience we recommend Chef's Corner, an excellent example of modern dining. If it’s romantic ambience you’re after then Naples on Andrejsala's waterfront will do the trick and so will Casa Nostra in one of the city's most beautiful art nouveau buildings. Finally, if you’re just looking for a romantic spot to have some coffee and cake, then drop by Art Café Sienna on Strēlnieku in Riga's art nouveau district.
