Here is what The Guardian says about Georgia’s ART-CAFÉ Home:

“After entering what seems like an abandoned club cloakroom through an unmarked door, climb the stairs to find the Art-Cafe Home rooftop. With comfy sofas, a chilled vibe and friendly locals, this bar is the perfect place to enjoy standard cocktails with a distinctly Georgian twist (cha-cha, a Georgian equivalent of grappa, features heavily). Best of all, it is a great spot to view the eclectic architecture of Tbilisi – the medieval fortress, crumbling Soviet houses and enormous modern constructions.”

Art-Café HOME inside out is very artsy. HOME GALLERY conducts sales exhibitions as well as organizes small art fair of paintings created in 89-91 years by Georgian Artists. The exterior of the building is very minimalistic that make it stand out from the old Tbilisi style buildings, while its unique Interior is a great example of 90’s Contemporary lux design.
