Walking around Old Riga, we were searching a place with some extraordinary cocktail’s menu – and this place was it! Service, atmosphere, drinks – they all were at a really high level! Cocktails were fancy, delicious, unusual – everything that we were looking for. And our waiter was a real gent! I would highly recommend this place!
