“The vIew!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

What is the best what you can see on 27 th floor ?-The view ! Come and seat on the comfortable sofas near the window,relax,chill and enjoy the overview of Riga city .Fridays and Saturdays there is dj and this bar is more like club or preparty place ,where music is getting louder and you can even dance on the dance floor what is situated in the middle near the main bar. There is different and really big choice of cocktails and vines ,various snacks so i would give a good point for this place. About public - is a big mixture of different people with diff.level of income ,here you will meet loads of students with foreighners as well as locals who came to enjoy the view or for sipping cocktails before the party .So,if you are snobbish ,better skip this bar and there is too many people inside on Fridays and Saturdays,the price for an entrance during the weekend is 2 ls,but if you do not want to stand up better to ask about empty places on the sofa before paying an entrance fees.

“Skyline Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Great location superb views of Riga by night. Charge of 2 Lats entrance not sure why this is the case when you are already paying guest already at the hotel. Staff generally attentive to your needs. DJ resident though judging by his taste in tunes he's a throw back to the ministry of sound mid 90s which requires a broader mix in my opinion but hey ho enjoy the time in Riga and we did Latvian style! Drinks are pricey but that's the norm in these types of hotels. Worth a visit but try to get there early to reserve a window seat preferably on your left as you enter.

“Beautiful view over the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

nice top floor bar at the hotel, with a beautiful view over the city.
There is an entrance fee, which keeps the low lives away, i guess.
Good cocktails. Nice to hang out.
Staff could be a bit more attentative.

“Cityscape views, excellent location average drinks and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Well worth a visit but if you are not staying in the hotel you have to pay 2 Ls entry fee (lasts all day). Brilliant location, 6 of us girlies visited late afternoon, watched sun setting over the city. Modern setting, high prices (as you might expect in international Chain hotel bar), wouldn't mind this but several of the girls had cocktails and they were disappointed, for example the Singapore sling, was not a classic! But to the reserva rioja was very nice but rather pricey.
