In 1836 Riga chemists and pharmacists society opened the so called "Mineral water institution" in the restaurant of Verman garden. During the period of time from 1863 until 1964 and from 1870 until 1871 the building was reconstructed. During the soviet times the mineral water trade has been closed, but the building was used for the needs of a cinema, pharmacy storehouses, kindergarten and house of pioneers. Since 1972 the building was empty, there were also a fire once. In 1996 the building was bought by the Man-Tess company. Soon there was cultural-dispersion centre Vernissage in it, afterwards - casino and the night club Fashion Club.
