If you love art in general and especially contemporary theatre and jazz music – then, you must not miss Tbilisi’s Movement theatre. It is an independent theatre established in 2001. It’s the synthesis of drama, mimodrama, movement and physical theatre genres, ballet, folk, contemporary music and visual art. The environment is inspiring and creative. You will never be bored simply by looking at walls decorated with crazy combination of musical instruments. Even the chairs are piece of art made of old jeans or alpinistic rope… Just take a glass of wine and enjoy an amazing evening! Three evenings a week, from Friday to Sunday you can enjoy performances. On Tuesdays and Thursdays really amazing jazz concerts take place. (Even the director of Tbilisi Conservatoire plays saxophone here.)

Amqari is located in a big basement in the very heart of Old Town. The founders and the staff members are really into making it into the best live music place in Tbilisi, so there are plenty of local bands performing every week. Despite being rather a bar than a restaurant, Amqari serves very good food too!

If you wish to experience the beats of young musicians from Tbilisi, that’s a proper option for you. Good choice of drinks, simple but tasty dishes, the atmosphere at the edge of “normal” and “underground” (it’s still a basement!) make Amqari a pleasant place to meet up with friends or friendly strangers. It may sound weird, but thanks god, the mobile signal there is poor, so you can really talk to each other!

Quality and friendly atmosphere, unforgettable jazz evenings is what made café restaurant “Kala” so famous among Georgians and travellers from different counties. The restaurant was named by Georgian writer and poet Vakhushti Kotetishvili.  Apparently in the 18th  century the name of the  area was  ”Kalo Ubani” and by naming the café with the word “Kala”,  Kotetishvili  kept authenticity to the place. 

Café is always crowded, on Fridays and on Saturdays, so it’s better to book the table in advance. Among the four different sections most cosy is Asian section with small chairs and tables. Seats in front of the bar are best if you wish to enjoy live music.

Maybe it’s the only one place, where jazz evenings are organised every evening from 21:00 to 00:00. They have a line-up for the whole next month and you could check it simply on their Facebook page. Jazz music is performed by best Georgian musicians – young or old generations, famous or less famous ones. It’s a family business, so the environment is really cozy and friendly. Menu is more European, than Georgian with quiet affordable prices.
