THis cozy club serves great food at outstanding prices. THe only problem was finding the place, which is downstairs in old town Riga. Just a doorway with a small hanging sign, leading to stairs down. Once downstairs, however, the space opens up to a series of arched-ceiling rooms. Walls and ceilings are brick and mortar, with just the right level of up lighting. Folk art and musical instruments are displayed throughout the 4 rooms of the club.
Atmosphere is definately casual, some round tables with chairs, some long tables with benches. The food is superior. We have been throughout RIga's best restaurants, and the food here is done as well as anywhere, but the prices are much better. So much so, that the crowd is often young students and 20-somethings come for the "solanka" soup.
The beer selection is excellent. there were at least 10-15 different local latvian draft beers to choose from, including all the Latvian favorites, but also some excellent microbrews that are quite hard to find.
There is also live music on most nights we have been there. Performances range from straight acoustic guitar and singing (both in English and Latvian), to full-up folk ensembles.
Overall, a great experience, with excellent local cuisine, lively young crowd, and great prices. A must for travelers wanting to relax and and get a feel of the local youth culture.
