In Fare Issue 6: Tbilisi, join us as we journey to the Caucasus region and explore the ancient Georgian capital — a place of long, wine drenched meals with a soundtrack of constant music and conversation.
Tbilisi is a post-Soviet city, a brusk meeting point for the country’s diverse gastronomic traditions and ancient viticulture. Here, the distinct regional identities of the country’s vastly diverse geography co-mingle in an environment where leafy courtyards and the charm of well-worn buildings serve as the backdrop for an energetic and passionate underground arts scene.
In this issue, we explore the ancient history of the city and the small surprises to be found in its streets and surrounding region. This issue of Fare is, as ever, in pursuit of the beautiful, the complex, and the unknown; your perfect access point to Tbilisi and the wider Caucasus.
