Despite its upscale customers, B Bārs is a veteran Old Riga bar and a warmly welcoming destination for a drink or three. The smooth bartenders deliver a galaxy of cocktails, including imaginative ways to mix Riga Black Balsam. Choose from hot or cold visions of the bitter local brew in the expansive space, colour-coded in just-about-tasteful Balsam-brown. It's listed here as a party destination, but B Bārs also has an excellent restaurant serving great value lunch specials, so pop in for a meal after exploring Doma Cathedral right next door.
