Tbilisi surprises you. Ancient monasteries perched alongside the mountainside overlook futuristic new buildings. Take a stroll around old town, the river and by the fountains at Europe park and you’ll fall in love with the place. Make sure you get a cable car over the city, too. Great girls, but not easy. Nightlife is shit.

The Girls

Janeta Kergikoshvili

Appearance: There is definitely a distinctive Georgian look. A clue to their unique ethnography is evident in the Georgian language, which is neither Indo-European, Turkic nor Semitic. The typical Georgian girl has dark brown hair, slightly sallow skin (similar to Balkan women), exceedingly flat eyebrows and a small Asian-type body. Their average height is 156cm (5 ft 1 in), the smallest in the Caucasus. They are also the lightest. The average standard is probably highest in the Caucasus. However, while finding doable girls is easy, but finding serious hotties is difficult. The frequency of jaw droppers is much higher in Azerbaijan and Armenia. Compared to these countries, the girls are also lighter in skin tone and hair colour.

Georgian girls are also the most Westernised of the lot. Converse shoes, tattoos and body piercings are no uncommon. A lot of the girls tend to dress quite hipster-ish, too. That said, Georgian girl are still more feminine in the way they walk and carry themselves.

Demographics: Tbilisi is a multicultural city (by regional standards). The city is home to more than 100 different ethnic groups. Around 85%+ of the population is ethnically Georgian, with significant populations of other ethnic groups such as Armenians (82,586), Russians (32,580), and Azeris. Along with the above mentioned groups, Tbilisi is also home to various other ethnic groups including Ossetians, Abkhazians, Ukrainians, Greeks, Germans, Jews, Estonians, Kurds, Assyrians, and others.

Attitudes: Georgian girls are most liberal girls in the region—but that’s not saying much. They are still more sexually reserved than any of their eastern European counterparts. The average age to get married in 23 and 20%+ of Georgian girls are still virgins when they marry. Coming from Sweden, girls in Tbilisi seemed liked nuns. Most girls take two or three dates to crack. One stands are very rare. Of all the expats I met, only two had managed to hook up with a local. I also had a friend living here for the whole summer and only managed to get a few kisses. All in all, I’d rate them harder to crack than Lebanese girls, but easier than Armenians.

Gaming Strategy: Options for night game are painfully limited. However, it’s still you’re best option. Day game is like marriage game. Simply put, the girls who go out at night are the only ones who put out. If she smokes, all the better. The good news is Georgian girls are very receptive to approaches, however, you may encounter a few problems.

Firstly, you have the less exotic capital here than anywhere in the Caucasus… especially as an American. In the last three years there has been a torrent of tourists and English teachers coming here. Secondly, many have limited English (hence the teachers). This is changing, but Russian is still the language of love here… like the rest of the Caucasus. Learn it. Thirdly, nearly all of them live with their parents and have curfews. Finally, they generally require work and investment. Don’t expect a one night stand. It rarely happens. You’re best bet is to build a vibe and get the number, and meet for a date at another time. Don’t be overly concerned about getting a kiss during the pick up. Many girls are shy with their friends around. All the  Caucasus capitals suffer from ‘big village’ syndrome.

The Dirt

AccommodationYou want to stay somewhere on Rustaveli street or Old Town. Personally, I opted for a place mid-way down Rustaveli near the nightlife venues below. BEWARE: Most hostels in Georgia do not allow locals to stay there. If you want to get laid, you have to rent apartment. Period. Unfortunately, apartments in Tbilisi are the more expensive than in Baku and Yerevan. If you ask at Why not hostel (great location and staff), they have the low down on a cheap apartment next door  ($35 a night). For other apartments, check out:, &

Getting High: It is legal to have marijuana if it is under 2 grams.

Where to buy marijuana in Tbilisi: Ask anybody who looks like a smoker at Canudos or Salve .

Tbilisi marijuana prices: Prices can vary greatly. Usually about 50GEL ($30) for a for a matchbox, but costs vary from around $20 – $40 max.

The Nightlife 

The nightlife scene in Tbilisi is pretty terrible. In my opinion, it is the worst in the Caucasus. You basically have two options. One is Shardeni Street in Old town: Russian level pretension, expensive drinks, very coupley, older crowd. (I have limited experience of this area). Then there’s a few place off Rustaveli and Freedom square.

The following are not really recommendations, but more of a ‘most tolerable bars’ list.


I never recommend restaurants, but I’m making an exception. Start your night here. A slap up Georgian meal and a few draught beers end will cost you next to nothing and you even get to see a show… with the most talented belly dancers you’ll ever see. 38/40 Rustaveli Street.


Good basement bar place near Freedom square on Shalva Dadiani St 15.  Attract an indie type crowd. Not a good pick up place but a good place to warm up or bring a date.

Café Gallery

Damn, I hate this place. Yet, sadly, this techno hipster gayfest is the often only gig in town- especially mid week.  The good news is it’s consistently busy (more than any bar), the beer is cheap and the women here are the most liberal in the city, so it’s good for scoring. Plus, many of the guys are gay so the competition is lessened. This is the only bar where I’ve heard of a guy getting a one night stand. It’s a pity, because this place would actually be OK if were not for the monotonous unrecognisable drivel being shit out by the DJs there. You’ll undoubtedly end up here at one point.



Five minutes walk from Café Gallery…a good place to start the night. As much as we tried to avoid it, we kept coming back here. This tiny little ethnic bar attracts  young ex-pats, Georgian students and hippie types. It can be hit or miss, but one thing that’s consistent is good music and cheap drinks. The layout is not very good for game though… lot’s of low seating with big groups. That said, girls here are receptive. This is where I picked up my Georgian flag. And if you can’t pick up a Georgian, at least there’s a few eager American TLG English teachers around. Facebook page here.

My Tbilisi Experience

Tbilisi acted as our base in the Caucasus. I went with five friends, but that number dropped to two after a few days. In total, I spent about 8 nights here. I found it very difficult to pull. I struck out more times here than anywhere in the region. I went on dates with three different girls (2 from which I met online) and got the odd kiss in the likes of Café Gallery, but ultimately these interactions amounted to little. Conservative attitudes and bad logistics were the reasons for this. I was convinced I wouldn’t get the flag, but my last night I rented an apartment and pulled it off. It took a lot of patient and effort. She was a student I picked up in Canudos and it was my 3rd date with the girl. Totally worth the wait. She had the sexiest little body I’ve experienced in two years. I got lucky.

Experience of Others

Patrick, 24, from Canada, who has live there for five months had this to say.

Georgian girls are incredibly charming and easy to approach. However, they are always hesitant and prone to second guessing what they really want. There is serious societal pressures. That said, put in a wee bit of investment and anything is possible.

If you do pull it off, don’t expect blowjobs and expect phone calls around 2am from their mothers.

    maybe you had real awesome luck in the neigboring caucus(handful of sluts) and made georgia hard in comparission.
    the more westernized the nation is…it should be sluttier

  2. Lamachus December 12, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    Wait–no blow jobs?

    • Naughty Nomad December 13, 2012 at 2:00 am #

    think you wouldve gotten more notches if you rented the apartment sooner…logistics..logistics

  4. Mike December 14, 2012 at 5:00 am #

    Yeah mate, I spent 4 nights in Tbilisi and no sex with local girls. It actually caught me off guard since my first morning there I approached two gorgeous girls and they were both friendly and receptive to meeting up again. Organized a day 2 with one and got ambushed by her bringing along 2 fat friends.. Nightlife = Garbage. On the plus side, I scored a Russian chick there who was travelling the area solo.

    Batumi on the beach seems to offer way more in terms of possibility since its the designated fun town of the Caucuses. Unfortunately I was only there 2 nights (sat and sun) so Saturday was the only good night for opportunities. Made out with quite a few cuties but pulling them was HARD. Harder than a priest at a playground.

    Slightly relieved to see I’m not the only one who struggled here girls-wise.. Other than that – I loved everything else about this country.

    Thanks for going here and reporting. It’s a place that I would have thought that would be good and I see it is not. I’ll make sure I save my money to go back to a country with good looking easy girls!

  7. Michael July 5, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    Lol if some of you dickheads think right now that Georgian girls are ugly than you should probably be afraid of being gay without knowing it.. Thank god they are not sluts and the nightlife is pretty damn cool you idiot it isn’t just as good as London or something. You think armenians are nicer? yeah sure these hairy girls can’t even be compared with Georgian girls..I know it is easier to get laid in america because of the feminine slut population you have there.. and again thank god it aint that bad in Georgia.. Ha! So go and fuck yourself dumb fuck

    • Michael's boyfriend March 9, 2016 at 3:56 pm #

      Chillax dude. No one said they were ugly, some are gorgeous, some are hideous, AS ANY OTHER PLACE.

      It is hard as @#$@#$ to get laid here though, no doubt.

  8. pippo barzizza July 18, 2013 at 6:57 pm #

    Well done NN, I was in Tbilisi many times in the old times, before the city became Westernised, and I agree with you on everything apart from two things:

    1) night life is not shit, fun things simply take place at home, and

    2) there is NO WAY that Armenian girls are better-looking than the Georgians !!!

    My personal advice is to forget unmarried girls and go for divorcees (on the average, they marry early and also divorce early) or married women.

  9. siya August 29, 2013 at 10:54 pm #

    hi.please give me some places that i can find really beautiful in tbilis.which city of georgia is good for beautiful girls and action(tbilis or batumi)? thanks

    • Naughty Nomad August 31, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

      Tbilisi is your best option. Batumi is a summer spot and a bit overrated.

  10. Dato November 18, 2013 at 2:19 pm #

    I have been staying here for 11 weeks as and so far I struck out 4 times. Have been on several dates and wasted a lot of lari doing so. Better to look for foreigners then it can be fun. If you dont get your dick wet in 3 months and you really tried then you have problems.

  11. maq December 6, 2013 at 11:46 pm #

    Hi all, I spent one month in tbilisi for business. I would like to share the safety tips I experienced. Night life: Two locations: under bridge (Rustaveli Avenue) and shardni street. Both are places for scammers girls and boys. Start in street: they will approach you to pay girls and their friends. Bodyguards will ask money or you will not pass easy. Inside, bar tenders will keep change or give your drinks to the girls working in club. Some girls and boys will take your drinks if you go dancing. Under bridge: group of organized scammers and workers. They will study you and try to get your personal info and play girls things or drink on your bill. Some workers will go home with you then you will kick her after give minutes because of what you will see when you alone with her.. So she will ask for money.
    Also, they will get your number to plan something next day. Bottom line, donot go ever there because its bad music, quality really dangers. Photo for scammer I met during one night.

    is this fucking serious??

  13. Orange Chinos October 21, 2014 at 12:49 am #

    Just found this whilst doing some research….

    I have just spend two weeks in Tblisi and found it fantastic. First Night I went out without a clue (having done no prior research)

    I am pretty well off so for my whole stay there I could afford very upmarket apartments for next to nothing (use airbnb)

    On said first night I ended up taking back two very nice Georgian ladies to my pad, both in their early to mid thirties and had spent a fair amount of time in Europe. Needless to say we all ended up in bed together….. One of the best experiences of my life.

    This would be my top tip; when trying to pick up ask whether they have studied abroad/been round the rest of europe etc as this makes them more open for one nighters.

    The Georgians are also very friendly, I very quickly became friends with a group of local guys who will now be mates for life. They showed me a lot of the city that just is not written about on the varies forums etc. This also takes away your “tourist” status as they are more receptive to you if your mates with locals.

    I had three more after this first night (none together again unfortunately) one was a bit more “cuddly” shall we say, but not un-attractive. We met one night, swapped numbers then met the next day (without her friend) and went straight to mine. This is very important to the girls over there. They WILL hook-up, but not when prying eyes are around.

    The next was a business woman (also Georgian) I met during a work thing in one of the more up market hotels in her late twenties. Petite and stunning. No one knew her at said work gig so she didn’t mind going out for drinks then back to mine after.

    Last one was the “cherry” on top; I invest a few dates and lari on her. Third date it paid off. I like the whole dating game so don’t mind.

    This has been my experience anyway. A place is what you make it. One thing I will say; the local girls don’t like Americans. As soon as it was clear I was from the UK when meeting girls on nights I was welcomed much more warmly.

    Georgian girls are way more natural than Azeris and Armenians, although there is no one district to party there are many places all around the city. The taxi fairs are cheaper, drinks taste better and people are more free. its all about the neighborhood darling.

  19. David September 11, 2017 at 4:40 pm #

    Dude, this is presumably an old post, because Tbilisi Nightlife right now is one of the best in whole Eastern Europe. Check out Bassiani club, the most notorious club in Eastern Europe. Also Khidi, Mtkvari and a dozen of underground bars like Ambavi, Zoestan, Amodi, Canudos, etc.

    • Mark Zolo September 13, 2017 at 12:25 pm #
