The staff are obnoxious and rude! Ths music choice is awful and doesn't suit the Soviet theme at all.

A bar which is an homage to the Soviet era. Oddly it felt quite authentic without being tongue in cheek or kitschy. The thing to really rave about are the prices. Food and drink is very cheap! Even by Riga standards. And not bad quality either.

We visited after going to the KGB museum which is fairly nearby and the irony wasn't lost on us! Pretty quiet on a Saturday afternoon but a great place for a couple of beers and a snack (we had their €10 sharing platter and a strange biscuit at €1 a throw which seemed to be strangely reminiscent of a "snickers"...

This is an interesting bar. It was supposed to be old Soviet gendre, but we found a lot of Finnish items in it. Service was very good, there was music and it was different than any other bars that we have visited in this city.

We were looking for a museum kind of bar but instead we found a kind real life bolsjewiek bar which didn't really accept outsiders. Somaybe it's a original bar but not a friendly one.

This place looks just like Norway in the 60, 70 and 80's....!! Great place, great food, great drink and great people. Should have been a place like this in my home town in Norway. Thank you... I'll be back..

New favourite in Riga. Soviet atmosphere in the best possible way, good and cheap drinks, friendly staff, rather funky menu. We totally loved their burgers! Delicious "Perestroika" burger comes with a shot of vodka! What more do you need to kick start the night out in town or end it on a fun note? Definitely going to return.
