Why locals love it

Peldu Street has long been famous for its vibrant nightlife. Now jazz has moved here too! In 2016 three overseas Latvians from Australia and Canada opened this restaurant where live music, food and people together create a warm and laidback atmosphere. At the moment it's one of rare places in Riga where you can enjoy regular live jazz performances.

Why you should visit it

Located next to the ancient Salt Carriers’ Guild, Trompete has preserved its historical aura, while adding some trendy postindustrial vibes. The restaurant offers fresh, seasonal food with local ingredients. They bake their own bread, pickle olives. During summertime you can sit outdoors in the cosy backyard and have a pizza straight from oven!

Special tip

One of the owners, Krišjānis Putniņš, is also running the popular Folkklubs Ala, located across the street. The best of Latvian beer and folk music!

Good food, nice music, welcoming (and smiling) staff, a rarity in Riga, it seems. They know their stuff, and have a short but well selected menu. No reason to leave to have after dinner drinks, so we just stayed for the rest of the night. No question best place in old town. Good vegetarian options (try the broccolini if you like lentils). Been here twice during our stay, will come again.

One of my favorite places in Old Town. Excellent quality and variety of food, the price is right, and they have always had some really nice jazzy acts. If you're a fan of whisky go on Thursday during their whisky happy hour, get a seat in the back room for when the music starts at 9 and order anything on the menu because Ive never had a plate that wasnt tasty delicious.
