The new summer season has started. Zulu bar is open!
Zulu bar I discovered two summers ago although it has been open since 2010. The bar is open for anyone. What is so special about it? The way to Zulu bar – it takes you through Andrejsala. At first it might look like it’s not the right way, but it is, just keep going.
It is located right at the yacht harbor, so you might get the chance to talk some “yacht people” into showing you Riga from Daugava by yacht. A little further is the pier of Andrejsala – a very nice place for a walk, there you might meet fisher men, they are very friendly. When I asked one how the fishing was, he wanted to talk and offered me an apple. So friendly! And the atmosphere itself in Zulu bar is very open and friendly. I think not many local people know about this place, but the bar is really cool though.
I like the idea where they offer the option to any customer to be a barman for one evening. You just need to call to Ieva + 371 29709889, ask her for all details when, how and how much it is, and you are a barman for the night!
But Zulu bar is not open every day, it depends on the weather. So it might be closed when you’re there, but you can still sit or lay down, because couches are always available.
