Next place worth visiting before the club or maybe even after, as it serves the food all night long and it might be wise decision to have a bite before falling off your feet in the morning - PUPU Lounge at Marstalu iela, 14. Open Wednesday- Saturday from 12.00 till the last guest, Happy hours 17.00-20.00.

Fabulous bar down stairs and dancing room on the second floor, for more information check out www.pupu.lv.
The night club near by, which is the most logical place to make party going – Nautilus (www.nautilus.lv) at Kungu iela, 8, which is just basically cross the street. The club imitates giant submarine, has 4 zones: chill-out, Absolut and Remi-Martin bars and of course huge dance floor with Ballantine’s bar. The music is mostly progressive, house-style.
It will take you couple of hours to feel the place and discover it completely, but remember it is not in fashion to stay in one club for the whole party, so gather your strength and be ready to visit couple of places more.
