Went downstairs. Music playing on speakers. No staff and place flooded. Asked a guy if it was open and he walked past as if we didn't exist

This is a great underground restaurant but was very damp in the entrance and smelled unpleasant, the beer was great, but both our meals were served cold and had to be sent back, OK if you go for a drink but would not bother with the food.

We went to the club because of good Trip advisor reviews. And it was worth it. On one hand one can have hearty but still refined delicious food and sample a good number of different Latvian beers, on the other hand, very good and varied live music (they were playing Celtic folk songs on the night we went there).

Really a cellar bar that serves food, absolutely packed with mainly local people, live music - jazz, folk. We went here several times. Superb ambience, good bar staff, serves a huge collection of local beers, wine cheap and tasty. Customers mainly under 30. Very noisy. Reminiscent of jazz clubs of the 50 s and 60 s and some present day... More

We visited this bar for a beer. The barman was very friendly and talked us through their large selection. Both our drinks tasted great. We ended up getting the Latvian garlic bread as a snack which was delicious. The bar was pretty big and had a great atmosphere!

I went here on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. I went on the only night they didn't have live music but I hear it's very good! The food was excellent with good portion sizes. The service was good and prompt. I definitely recommend the garlic bread it's the best I've had in the Baltics

Had a nice evening dinner in this cozy, tucked away place in downtown Riga. Service was very good and they serve a very good hearty meal for next to nothing. Also greatly enjoyed their wide selection of local craft beers. Definitely worth a visit (or more)!
