You will most likely want a stiff beverage even before you get to this bar. A 240-meter (787 feet) glass bridge, shaped like an inverted, anchor-shaped diamond, was originally presented in the village of Dashbashi Canyon, about two hours from Tbilisi’s capital.
A huge transparent structure, built by investment group Kass Group, rises to 280 meters (around 919 feet) above the natural monument of Utrisk Gorge. Made from steel and glass, it took around three years to construct. On June 14th, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili attended its official opening.
The bridge’s multi-level bar, located at its highest point, is reportedly the largest and tallest hanging structure in the world. The venue has been submitted to Guinness World Records. It also includes a zip line where visitors can bike across the canyon and a cliff “swing.” An array of guest suites located near the site are due to open in the coming months. Tomer Mor Yosef from Kass Group revealed that the shape of the bar was inspired by the canyon itself.
The point was to make an extreme, exciting, and memorable occasion that would awaken each of the five senses of the guests and would be imprinted in their memory.
Officials hope a new glass-bottomed bridge will attract more tourists to the site, which is considered to be one of Georgia’s most impressive natural monuments. The bridge, which spans 200 meters across the canyon and hangs 492 feet above ground, was launched in the rural highland region of Son La province on Wednesday. The news came just days after Georgia announced it would be reinstating pre-pandemic border policies for foreign visitors, allowing them to enter the country without declaring any medical issues or diseases they might have that could potentially spread within Georgia’s borders.
