Why locals love it

There's nothing else locals love more during the summer than staying out late and soaking up the summer sun. Although it's just outside the Old Town, Pagalms (courtyard in Latvian) seems a world away from the tourist-filled terraces in Old Riga. It's located just behind the National Theatre - the birthplace of Latvian state.

Why you should visit it

For the opportunity to grab a Latvian craft beer, sit on the terrace waving to tourist boats passing you and watching as those stuck on the small vessel try to figure out where on the map is this place, so they can locate it later. If weather is not on your side the modern interior, good service, tasty food and coffee will keep you warm.

Special tip

Take a seat around the corner of main entrance for some amateur tennis action.

I really enjoy the atmosphere of the place. They usually have some good music playing both indoor and outdoors. The service is attentive, quick and friendly. The food flavorful and creative. Overall great experience. The prices are what you would expect from Old Town but the combo of everything makes it worth it.
