Mtkvarze – which means on the river Mtkvari - is located in the building of a former fish restaurant, quite famous in the town during the 1950s. Just two months after opening it won Best Venue at the Georgian electronic music awards. Mtkvarze usually operates with two rooms. The bigger one is oval shaped and its windows from floor to ceiling overlook the river running under. Mostly local DJs play here - mainly techno or house - every weekend. Mtkvatze is a little away from the centre but very easy to reach by taxi, and worth the trip.
