Good Bar to Watch World Cup

On the assumption that England progress past the group stage, their next game will be either the 26 or 27 June.

Could anyone suggest a good venue in or near the old town to watch the game.

Looking for a lively atmosphere with lots of England Fans

Thanks in advance for your help

Paddy Whelans (http://www.pub.lv/) or Alberts Pub (http://www.albertspub.lv/) would be my choice in the old town

Bombardier is okay but it's out of the old town and so will be mostly locals. England fans will be in Alberts or Paddy Whelans.

Paddys is pretty good and they have quite a few TV's including a Big Screen and last Time I was there a Tv was even in the outdoor area.

Thanks for the advice guys, although it is looking very doubtful if England will progress much further. May have to support another team if England are out of the competition.

Still I take it the beer is good - any recommendations?

just go for the local lagers,not on a par with the Czech and German stuff but certainly as good if not a bit better than Carling,Carlsberg and a good deal better than that dishwater Hienekin.

you will find in the Irish/British bars a lot of the beers you get at home ,but you will be paying a premium price for them.

The local spirit is Riga Black Balsam,bit of an aquired taste,more like a cough syrup than a drink but not bad at all.
