Very nice place in old town of Riga. I never went to Riga to drink beer and eat food that I can find anywhere. This place is the real deal, serving unfiltered, delicious, traditional beer and home made, wholesome food. The prices, well, the best beer I had was 1,5 euros and the other beers were from 2 to 3 euros. The food servings were big and it didn ot cost much. When I returned the next nights, the bartenders shook my hand and treated me very well. There was a scene there where they had karaoke, improvisation theatre and local music. Highly recommended!

Trevligt ställe i utkanten av gamla stan, dit det verkar som att få turister hittar. Två bord på en uteservering, stor hall i källaren, med livemusik, matbord, två barer. Hyfsat urval av inhemska öl, till (för en svensk) mycket låga priser. Åt en pubrätt som jag stod mig på i 8 timmar. Trevligt ställe. Bästa stället i Riga jag besökte om man är ute efter stor variation av öl i kombination med få turister (kändes som ett studenthak). Absolut värt ett besök.

Nice basement in the old town. Quite large and with a fairly large selection of local beer makes this a must visit in the old town. Convenient location and friendly staff.

If ou are lookinf for latvian beer, then this is the place. I havent seen so wide selection of latvian beer (~20 on tap), also food is good mostly with meat. Music also perfect for this kind of a place. If you are looking for a beer from other countries this is NOT the place.

A nightly party with live folk music and sing-a-longs in a huge cellar with multiple bars serving a good selection of interesting Latvian beers. I’d come here weekly if I lived closer.

Fancy to see how locals party in Riga? Go to Basement. Starting from couple metalheads, desperate housewives, mobsters, hipis with bare feet and flowers in their hair and sum up with drunk (underage) teens, this place has them all. Place was absolutely packed on friday night. No place to sit and no place to stand. At some point we noticed one "empty table" , half-full glasses and wintercoats still there. We squeezed ourselves to sit there and drink some beer. Owners of beers came by from time to time to drink their beers and went back to wiggle their bottoms in rhythm of the band. Amazing and big thanks. Decent selection of classic local beers and some Aldaris/Cesu too. PS. Mind the pumpkins.

Rating ambience from pure brainstem hedoism - I love cellar bars, and I love live music venues (on the assumption the music is good, which it was here). There are places I’d go for quiet conversation, and this ain’t one on a Friday evening when the band’s in full swing, and the crowd’s loving it. Presently have 22 taps. Everything I asked for was on (we had 4, I think), so no reason to doubt they didn’t have close to all 22 on. All the classic Latvians, including several ticks, which isn’t bad going considering I’ve not been here for a year. It’s actually very easy to find, all you need is the streetname, and you’ll see it immediately. Like the long hours, even though I didn’t take advantage of them. Now Brevinga’s nose-dived, I think this has to be the #1 Latvian place now (not for imports though, but it’s obvious where to look for those). Will revisit, that’s for sure.

Located in a dark cellar on the southern outskirts of old town, Folkklubs is a folk music venue gone pub. The stage was empty when I was there but folk music was played on the loudspeakers. The place has a very rustic atmosphere, they have some 16 beer taps and a kitchen (that I didn’t try). All in all very nice and a good place to try Latvian beer on draft. Visited on 2013-07-08.
