“One of the best view of Riga!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Executive summary

Pros - Great view of Riga city centre, comfortable settings.
Cons - Can become crowded in the evening, when it transform to more of a club rather than lounge.

Top tip - Pop in before dinner (5pm) to ensure a good table facing old town and enjoy the happy hour prices.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

My third time in Riga and fourth visit to the Skybar! I think it's well worth it. The drinks are excellent and compared to Swedish prices they are cheap. The service is really good and the atmosphere is great! I liked that they had a DJ there this last time. The only negative is that it feels like the furnitures needs to be replaced if they want to keep it looking really good. Also you have to pay to enter the bar but that is OK. The view is worth it!

“Go for the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The bar here is okay, nothing that special, but there is no doubt that you go here for the view. It's quite big so you probably won't need to book a table. Drinks a pricey relative to the rest of the city but not extortionate.

“Very Happy happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

On a perfectly gorgeous day in Riga we made our way up to the 26th floor of Hotel Latvia (Radisson Blu) sat in the window seats and gazed at the wondrous views whilst imbibing excellent cocktails and enjoying very good service. Two for the price of one at happy Hour - no entry charge on week nights. What's not to love?

“great view of Riga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

amazing drinks, great music, great atmosphere, the food was even awesome. To top it off... one of the best views of Riga.. a great place to watch the sunset on the city. I would have to say though the lady at the entrance was rather rude, and sometimes slow service, but overall an enjoyable experience.
