Straddled between Vera and Saburtalo, Vake is the neighborhood where embassies and hotels line the main street Chavchavadze, and where quaint cafes, juice bars, boutique wine stores, bike shops, and spas are around every corner.
You can snag a desk at Terminal Abashidze Coworking, which is one of the best places to get some work done alongside other keyboard warriors, or seek out the fun and funky Collider, which you can’t miss thanks to the giant mural of someone working on their computer outside. Between Zoom calls or emails, order a fresh juice from Ska Juice Bar or kombucha and vegan lunch from Namu Vegan Café for a better way to refuel, and treat yourself to some pampering at Nuage Spa and decompress with a much-needed massage after a long and exhausting work week.
Do like the Vake locals and spend your weekends outdoors, either walking through the newly renovated Vake Park, climbing the indoor routes at S.K. Lucky Climbing Wall inside Arena 2, or strolling through the kid and pet-friendly green spaces at the sprawling Mziuri Park. Additionally, the Soviet-style Turtle Lake Ropeway funicular is always an adventure for those brave enough to step foot inside.
Georgia is the place for wine and 8000 Vintages Wine Bar and Store is the place for finding local wine and incredible charcuterie boards, while its neighbor Wine Library will give you plenty of opportunities to drink your way through Georgia’s many different varietals.
If coworking spaces are starting to feel too stuffy and you need to change things up, Vake has tons of alluring coffee shops and cafes where working on your computer won’t feel uncomfortable. You can stop into Lui Coffee and order a desert as payment for your seat or go for the coffee and waffles at Shukura, a light lunch at Paul or Strada Mosashvili, or get your caffeine fix at Coffeeshop Company Tbilisi and work the day away.
