It is just called Ala and is a regular bar. It gets called a folk club but it is not. It gets called a cellar (Pagrabs) but is more of a cave, which is what Ala means. A wide range of older Latvian beers; a good range of new craft stuff and imports; a lot of good quality cheap food. Stays open to 07.00 on some nights and can be rammed in the evenings, though it had 150 seats minimum across the four stone-clad, much-wooded rooms. A great vibe.

Probably this place is one of the top recommendations in all the guidebooks so it gets pretty crowded every (!) evening but sure is worth it. Great selection of beer, great food, fair prices, often live music.
Gets quite stuffy though.

Probably has the largest range of local beers on tap in town. Almost always something new available. Last time I was there I was amazed to see Aldaris Porteris on tap. Place is not too difficult to find - but it’s a long way from the entrance to the actual bar ! Can get crowded and staff can be very good at completely ignoring customers. Quality of food is variable - I try not to eat there any more.

Een heel sfeervolle en unieke locatie tussen de Letten. Heerlijk Lets bier en het eten is voortreffelijk. Aardig personeel. Topten!

This place was great! A little hard to get a seat but when you did the food was so tasty and so cheap, large array of taps with local beers on and I seem to remember some sort of music, maybe a band?
