This bar is popular with both locals and tourists, who flock here for the energetic atmosphere, decent Latvian beer and live music. The entire bar is situated underground, with stone arches and wooden tables that reward customers with an almost medieval drinking experience. The beer was the main highlight for me, with around 30 beers on tap to choose from.

Wow! I've eaten twice here and each time the food has been amazing. Small menu but wide variety. Certainly one of the most unique places to dine, with its underground setting and historical folky feel =)

This is my favorite bar in Riga! Almost every night there is live music playing (usually Latvian folk, but it also varies), there is a huge beer choice with very good prices, and the food is hearty and delicious. Very cozy.
It can get really hot in there because it gets really crowded. If you want to go for dinner (or even if you just want to get a table), definitely make a reservation well in advance because it usually fills up, even on weeknights.

First to Review

We were in Riga for one month at we frequented Folkklub once or twice a week!

First of all, honey beer! Second, live folk music! Sometimes it's a lone accordion player going table to table taking song requests. The patrons are encouraged to sing along. (We requested Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and he was playing just fine but we forgot the words!) Sometimes there is a 4-piece band on stage playing folk music and everybody in the place is dancing! What a great way to experience Latvian culture!

The atmosphere is dark and basement-y with dim lighting. The service was always friendly and helpful.

As for the food, get the Latvian Garlic Bread but make sure you have plenty of breath mints because WOO!...that's garlicky stuff! But super super delicious! The bread is cut into thick strips and fried into a crispy outside, soft inside garlicky treat!

My go-to entrée was the Stuffed Cukini which I always got without the cheese. It's basically sliced zucchini with sweet tomato sauce. Very filling!

Many good times and many happy memories here :)
