Krogs Aptieka (Pharmacy Bar)

After presiding over a staple of the Washington DC nightlife scene for several years, American-Latvian Kristaps Krēsliņš opened yet another Pharmacy Bar, but this time in the Latvian capital. Medieval brick walls, medicinal tinctures and scales, tables embedded with capsules and pills and painted silhouettes of old-fashioned bottles on two floors are a clever combination of old and new and the perfect backdrop for a night of cocktails and beers. That said, this hip hangout isn’t just about imbibing. A small menu of burgers, grill cheese sandwiches and chicken wings have also been added to the pharmacy’s inventory, so you can grab a great meal here every day until 22:00. The bar also provides a free CD jukebox that offers anything from Johnny Cash to Fugazi.

Awesome place!Easy and relaxed yet very friendly and caring staff, the same goes on customers. Music's just right (even though usually customers choice - free jukebox).A must go!p.s. if decide on visiting Vilnius, Lithuania, afterwards, try Pianoman on Islandijos g. 3 - just the same if not better:)

I love it so much I would like to say "don't go there" so I can keep it to myself, but THIS PLACE ROCKS. If you have to pick one bar to visit in Riga - this is it!!!!!
