Salamandra

Salamandra
In the past Salamandra club was the famous Drum and Bass and other electronic music nightclub in Riga.
Salamandra was opened in 2003 in the former industrial area. Since 2008 the club is relegated to oblivion.
Many electronic music artists like Future Prophecies, Pendulum and Raiden were guests DJs in Salamandra during these 5 years. I must admit that Salamandra also had reputation of the place for drug abused people.
