Tbilisi has a knack for refurbishing old industrial spaces. Once a soviet sewing factory, Fabrika has been revived and transformed into a multi-functional urban space that combines a hostel, a co-working space, cool cafes and bars, a few hipster shops and restaurants. During the day digital nomads and local creatives tap away on their laptops, while after 6pm a lively party crowd fills the inner courtyard. It's the ultimate meeting spot in Tbilisi.


After a long day of sightseeing, nothing is better than a good cup of coffee or a flavoured tea, perhaps along with exquisite local pastries, and Tbilisi's cafes offer you all of that, plus some of the most charming views of the old city and the surrounding mountains. Otherwise, if you are up for a glass of wine, you must know that Georgia is considered to be the homeland of wine, so you would better discover the lovely hidden cellars and pop open some of the finest bottles in the region.
