Riga, Latvia

The capital of Latvia has a great mixture of the gritty underground and the refined cocktail bar to suit all tastes or make a great combination. The Skyline Bar features views out across the city and drinks made by an expert mixologist while live music can be experienced in all forms at the Depo. If you are a bit of a foodie, then the city has plenty to offer too. Vincents is one of the most creative restaurants in the city while Istaba has a menu that changes on a daily basis.

Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon combines a sea view with a real Bohemian feel and means you can go around art galleries and shop in the markets during the day then enjoy live music venues at night. There is everything from a rooftop bar to an outdoor cinema as well as the usual trendy bars. For an evening meal Chapito a Mesa is a bit different as there are live circus acts to entertain you while you eat.
