There are also a few café’s where you can smoke using a hookah.
Many restaurants and bars put on live music, on a nightly basis, throughout the tourist season. In the tourist areas, this typically involves Georgian bands who predominantly play Western style music, but you can also hear traditional Georgian music, in more Georgian oriented establishments. For those who enjoy polyphonic singing, you might be fortunate to witness a performance in one of the many Orthodox Churches in central Tbilisi.
For families, a great place to visit is Mtatsminda Park. It is situated atop a hill/mountain that overlooks central Tbilisi, and there is a special funicular railway to get there. It is a great amusement park for kids, and you might want to prepare swimming costumes for the water slide. There are also many carrousels, a Ferris wheel and a roller-coaster. For your first visit, you might want to take advantage of one of our guided tours which includes Mtatsminda Park on the itinerary.
