Mtkvare is a small club with a big heart and one of our favourite places for Tbilisi nightlife. It is more upbeat and less industrial than Khidi and Bassiani. Here, a packed-out dancefloor dances to anything from tech house to disco, and house to funk.
The balcony overlooking the river is a great place to meet locals. Mtkvare has two rooms that both play great music. Hidden down a narrow corridor, the second, smaller room is like stepping into Sisyphos or Kater Blau in Berlin. You will find few tourists here. It’s a favourite among people living in Tbilisi.
Door policy: The door policy is relatively relaxed just be nice on the door.

Parampa does not get the attention it deserves on the Tbilisi nightlife scene. Located in Vake Park, this place is the friendliest club in Tbilisi. Heading to Parampa on a Friday evening is like going to a family reunion. Everyone knows everyone and everyone loves to dance.
The music is less techno and more deep house. One thing is certain – it’s always good. Parampa doesn’t stay open as long as other bigger clubs. It usually shuts by 5 AM.
Door policy: just be nice.

On Fridays, Horoom forms part of Bassiani. On Saturdays, Horoom is a club in its own right when Bassiani is shut. Horoom DJs play mostly deep house. It’s a far smaller venue than Bassiani and can sometimes get too full. Nonetheless, the vibe is normally great here. There is also a large space behind the bar popular for smoking and relaxing. Horoom’s monthly LGBTQ, Horoom Nights has cemented Horoom on the Tbilisi nightlife map for its liberal values and freedom of expression.
Door policy: Similar to Bassiani – small groups and don’t be a dick.
