Tbilisi by Night

fabulous lights, overzealous security guards and surly waiting staff

sunny 29 °C

As daylight was fading and the artificial lights came on, the view from the balcony made us think that it was worth taking a tripod and heading for town. And boy was it worth it! I love, love, love Tbilisi by night. It's such a vibrant city, so much creative use of lights on bridges, buildings and statues. Apart from almost being run over by a police car and being questioned on the bridge by a security guard as I was setting my tripod up, the evening was uneventful.


Salomeh recommended a restaurant with a couple of nice terraces overlooking one of the squares, so we headed for that. There appeared not to be any free tables on the terrace by the entrance, so we wandered inside and stood around in the lobby looking lost, with at least seven waiters rushing past, totally ignoring us. Eventually we asked one of the waitresses if there were any tables upstairs outside, and she just screwed her face up, shrugged her shoulders and pointed upwards with one finger. “Check for yourself”. That's when we decided to take our custom elsewhere. We found a nice little place with upmarket seating and cute waiters. The food was good, as was the service, and they had free wifi. Result!
