What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Yes there are regular happy hour type events, women's clubs, etc. Opportunities are there if you look for them. - Jul 24, 2017

There are a lot of good bars and pubs all around Riga. Professional Hockey, basketball, and soccer teams are fun to watch. Riga seems to be the place for the British and German stag parties. - Aug 23, 2008
