Makonis, Cocktails & Design
Mākonis (Cloud) is a place where cocktails and design meet. It is a trendy cocktail bar and restaurant with a menu that has been specially created to enhance the experience of cocktail tasting. The ingredients for each cocktail are carefully selected, only fresh juices and home-made syrups are used to give the most intense flavours. Mākonis opens early, at 10:00, to offer a tasty breakfast with excellent, locally roasted, coffee (or a bloody mary if you have a hangover).
Their weekend waffle brunch is very popular among locals, 7 € will get you all-you-can-eat waffles with sweet and savoury toppings (Saturdays 10:00-16:00 and Sundays 10:00-18:00). Rumours set the record at 15 waffles devoured in a single sitting; feel like becoming a local legend?
The owners of Mākonis have over 20 years experience in interior design, working on houses, flats, bars, restaurants and jewelry shops in Latvia and abroad. You’ll appreciate the interior, you can find some quite unique features integrated into the bar’s layout if you look carefully enough. Located in Riga’s central district, the area where the hip young locals hang out, Mākonis stays open until 1 am on Fridays and Saturdays with DJs keeping the cocktail-swilling crowd on their feet.
