What would a summer be without a relaxing moment on a rooftop terrace? Still summer, but not with the real summer feeling and mood.
One of my long traditions every summer is to go at least once to a rooftop terrace for a drink, chat and a relaxing moment. There aren’t so many places in Riga to enjoy the beautiful view from above, so my choice is always roof terrace on the shopping center Gallery Riga. With a very central location, it has a great terrace on the 8th floor with 3 cafes to choose from – a stylish one named “Herbārijs”, a relaxed one named “D ’arte Terrace” and the one with the grilled food is “67 Grill&Lounge”. It’s possible just going onto the roof and walking around a bit to enjoy the view from above, however.
The view on Riga is available from a 360 degree angle, so it’s only a decision about when and with whom to go. All the rest is there – the atmosphere above the street noise, the beautiful view, drinks, snacks, Instagram photo places and a chance to be distanced from the everyday hurry and stress. Of course, the sunsets are very impressive from this terrace so it is a good idea to end the day on this rooftop terrace.
