Few cities are as colorful and appealing as Tbilisi is. Here in the capital of the Black Sea nation of Georgia, Caucasian traditions are mixed with a modern lifestyle where old town architecture looks even more fascinating next to a modern one. Tbilisi has its own rhythm and to see and feel it you need to explore the city from day to night as the night reveals absolutely new colors of Tbilisi.
Nightlife in Tbilisi is truly an art that shows the heartbeats of any person who wants to relax and just have fun, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
Let’s start from Fabrika – 8 Egnate Ninoshvili St. Before you start your active nightlife in Tbilisi, you need to warm up so, our advice is to visit Fabrika, which is used to be a sewing factory, hence comes the name. Now it is a multi-functional urban space that perfectly mixes old Soviet elements with modern design. Here you can enjoy all the different venues, such as Dive bar, Pipes Burger, Asian cuisine Ukve, a hostel, and a co-working space Impact Hub. There are various events held at its courtyard so, you can visit them any time you want.
If you want less hippie warm-up you can visit Akhvlediani Street – the center of Tbilisi nightlife. This is a street with popular bars, pubs, and clubs on both sides. It is the brightest and noisiest night place of the capital. So, if you do not know where to go at night, you can just walk down the street in the evening and choose a place you like. The street is located near the subway station Rustaveli.
On the other hand, if you are not on the mood of Akhvlediani street noise, you can walk down on Rustaveli street or Abanotubani and there are plenty of bars where you can drink beer or vodka and listen to music which will be a flashback from your teenage years.
After you visit Fabrika and different bars near Abanotubani or on Akhvlediani, Rustaveli streets, believe us, you will be totally warmed up. Approximately, after 01:00 AM you can start to think where you want to spend the rest of the night. Here you have also many options but now we are offering you the best ones.
The first is BASSIANI which is located on Tsereteli Avenue. This is one of the most unique clubs in Tbilisi and it is popular among the techno and house lovers. Here you can see the performances of the best local DJs, as well as a weekly line-up of famous international DJs. The sound quality of music is considered the most professional and this is one of the first factors that make BASSIANI so popular. The atmosphere of the club almost immediately takes you to another space: smoke, black walls, and the only light from the scene sometimes illuminates the dance floor. Being unaware of how time passes, you can leave the club before dawn.
The second is KHIDI which is paradise for those who are in love with techno. The club is located in the city center, under the bridge Vakhushti. The club is divided into three floors and hosts more than 1,000 visitors at a time. On the third floor, there is an exhibition hall, where the works of local and foreign contemporary artists are exhibited.
The third one is on Agladze street – MTKVARZE. The club has two halls with different music. One of them is larger and brighter with high ceilings and huge windows. Such an atmosphere is not typical for the club, but if you need more space, it is worth to spend time in this hall. The large hall is perfect for the lovers of underground house. The second hall is darker. Little room is meant for experimental music, where the best DJs of the country and abroad perform fantastic mixes.
The fourth one is the Café Gallery. It is a multifunctional space, which involves: Cafe, Bar, Exhibition Gallery and Night Club. It was founded 10 years ago and is one of the most important parts of the Georgian Club scene. The only reason for its importance is that Gallery became the space that was trying for years to change the way of thinking of Georgian youth. Many famous Georgian DJs started to play in the Gallery and grew up. This place still is the starting for many newcomer DJs.
As you see, here in Tbilisi there are not only beautiful historical buildings, museums or delicious foods or people, – here everything is one integrity.
