Juris Ķēniņš from Latvia is one of the best bartenders in the world and the author of the cocktail menu. After two and a half years in the American Bar of the legendary Savoy hotel in London, he has returned to Latvia and will work and create drinks that are an ideal fit for seafood dishes at the seafood bar BARENTS.



Barents is a passionate team working hard to bring joy and authentic gastronomic experience at the table.

Our cooking style is honest and minimalistic preserving genuine flavors of the ingredient. We know our small-scale farmers and fishermen who supply Barents with limited availability and top quality produce.




Harsh northern nature and clean cold waters yield the finest seafood. Pure flavors, seasonal products and true celebration of life. This is what describes Barents menu.

Chef Ivans Šmigarevs

I select wines that are true in their nature. They precisely represent the soil, climate and culture of their region. The core of our wine menu consists of wines from colder regions. They are best paired with vegetables and seafood found in cold waters."

Sommelier Kaspars Reitups

BARENTS cocktails represent our spirit — the monumental of glaciers and the saltiness of the sea. Our drinks reflect the bar’s atmosphere and, just like our dishes, reveal the taste of the North, enriched by carefully selected ingredients from all over the world.
