How it All Began
The majestic building on Aspazijas bulvāris 22 has welcomed the most prominent city guests since the 19th century. It was in 1878 that it first opened its doors as a hotel, the most modern accommodation in Riga that combined the best Western and local traditions.
In 1967, it made history as the first place in Latvia that had a bar, while its head bartender Jāzeps Arbidāns, became a legend for mixing the first-ever alcoholic cocktail not only in Riga, but also in the whole of the Soviet Union.
