EQUUS – Riga’s latest addition to city’s food scene
Equus, meaning “a horse” in Latin, was chosen to mark the history of the restaurant’s location.
The fabled Baron Munchausen, who was keen to tell embellished tales about his adventures around the world, allegedly kept his horse stables right where the hotel restaurant stands today. The subtle and elegant interior is thoroughly Scandinavian, combining warm wood, sober brick walls and neutral natural colours in a chic tribute to local patterns. The adaptable restaurant rooms, for their part, are divided by glass doors, which can be closed for small, intimate gatherings or left open for larger events.
