“When I entered the place last summer during Euro Pride and addressed the bartender in Latvian, he didn't seem to understand very much, muttered some words in broken Latvian, was as surly as one could imagine. The Latvian beer he served me tasted genuine, but the place was totally dead. The staff didn't seem to have any business sense. I felt creepy and took off after having half of my bar.“

“Ok so I'm not normally one for reviews but this place deserves one! I went with two of my friends and were charged 5 euros each to get in. Why I do not know as the place was dead. It was Friday at around 11:30pm. Staff were not friendly and seem to consult a manager prior to telling you how much a drink was. Prices varied but when I asked for a vodka and coke and was charged 10 euros.......... Well this just takes the piss. We left due to rip of prices and won't be going back again I can assure you. I'm writing to let other people know to be wary that if you're foreign you'll be ripped off so beware. Also for a Friday night it was dead, there were us three and about another 5 in the whole place.“
