I visited B-Bar with couple of friends, and to be honest I was surprised by the variety and creativity of their cocktail list. There is something for every body there, whether you like sweet, fruity, spicy, strong, or virgin cocktails. I tried couple of cocktails made with Balzams, which is a local liquor made with currants.

For two - starters (salads with cheese, fresh figs and orange - tuna with houmous) - main chicken breast wrapped in bacon with herb mash and veg - all served to perfection and delicious. Service is a bit slow, but well worth the wait. Total cost including bread and two beers - Lats25 excellent value. Recommended and would visit again... More

I arrived in this nice bar quite late at night, but no problem to get some food. I tasted a nice goulash sup, with an excellent beer. People were really friendly even if was almost the closing time. Price was average.

Very energetic bar right in the old town. Professional barmens prepared absolutely perfect cocktails. Cool interior, interesting menu. If you are in the old town give it a visit.

I have eaten in B Bar on a number of occasions. I have consistently had good meals here that are also good value. Late in the evening there is always a good atmosphere. Located in the city centre this is a venue I would recommend
