This is the most beautiful setting for a drink you could imagine in Batumi, period. Located on the top 20th floor of the Hilton Hotel, the view at Nephele Sky Bar is nothing short of spectacular, encompassing the entire city from west to north as well as the sea. Pair that with amazing cocktails, great food and a friendly staff and you have one of the best bars in Georgia.

The interior is rather classic, with neutral colored carpets, walls and couches that create a laid-back atmosphere – an ideal setting to enjoy a small coffee or a nightcap after a long day. But let’s be honest, you’re really here for the rooftop terrace. The sweeping, gorgeous views are the main attraction, in the warmer months and in the winter too. The staff provides blankets and heaters to make sure that you can comfortably enjoy the scenery even in the dead of winter. Bring your friends, family, a date or even your business partners and prepare to wow them.

The cocktail menu is extensive, and we appreciate its dedication to showcasing the best liquors and traditional drinks from Georgia. Here is not the place where you enjoy a simple Cosmopolitan and call it a night. Be a little daring, enjoy the friendly and well-trained staff’s recommendations, and your taste buds will thank you for it. While on this discovery path, do not hesitate to sample the delicious Georgian cuisine, starting with the Khachapuri Imeretian, a cheesy pizza-like dish filled with a creamy, low-salted local cheese. If you prefer to skip the dairy, they also have an excellent grill, with meat directly sourced from the Georgian grasslands and fish straight out of the Black Sea.

End your evening with a glass of Chacha, the typical Georgian spirit (a sort of strong grappa) while enjoying the city lights and planning the rest of your stay. After all, this is but a taste of what Georgia has to offer.
