Galerija “Istaba” – Cozy like your own room

Galerija Istaba (istaba means room) is an art gallery, a shop and a restaurant- all in one place. The small and cozy shop is full of stylish and original jewellery, interior objects, books, t-shirts, accessories and other hand-made crafts. For girls there is a wide range of unique earrings, for boys – wooden bow-ties. Some of these things are produced by the gallery, some – exclusive artist’s works.

Here you can also find some sweet and one-of-a-kind Latvia-themed gifts such as music CDs, art catalogs and culture press. My absolutely favorite is the wide range of funny and original post-cards – appropriate for every occasion.

The things that give this place a very special, creative and even bohemian atmosphere are definitely the art exhibitions. Every month a new exhibition takes place and the best thing is that here you can see works by different kinds of artists – starting from young and talented art students to well-known professionals. The artworks itself varies as well – from watercolor paintings to design objects and even dolls.

On the 2nd floor you will find a restaurant called “Buffete” which has a great street view of Kr. Barona street. The menu is simple and therefore fits the atmosphere perfectly. You can try a bowl of soup or salad, as well as just a cup of tea or coffee with friends.
