Big club/restaurant located in a cellar. Impressive selection of Latvian beer. Plays live music, so it can be quite crowded in the evenings. Food is good. Probably the best place to drink beer in Riga, at least in the city centre.

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. Id 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.
