A banquet hall on the water – pontoon Silva

The pontoon is located on the Driksa River, in the bay near the Pils Island. This place offers one of the most beautiful views of the city. Nearby, the tea house Silva and the spacious Pasta Island offer various activities for both adults and children.

The celebration premises are housed in a historic and interesting object – a reconstructed pontoon, which was once one of the forming sections of Riga’s pontoon bridge. After the opening of the Vanšu Bridge in Riga in 1981, the pontoon bridge was dismantled, some of the pontoons were towed by sea to Leningrad, and some of the pontoons remained in Āgenskalns Bay. Before reaching Driksa and being reconstructed, this pontoon was part of the Svēte River pontoon bridge.

Today, the pontoon has been transformed into an interesting and luxurious event venue with a magnificent view of the city outside the window. The location of the ballroom on the water offers special sensations: the beautiful view, the possibility of access by water transport, the spacious roof deck, the play of lights in the dark, and the opportunity to enjoy nature almost in the heart of the city. The banquet facilities can accommodate up to 30 guests.
