“Great pizza and ex-pat atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

So it's really smokey inside but we chose to eat inside because the patio was overwhelmed with the green neon glow of their sign. I'm talking bright/eerie here. After a week of the same sorts of Georgian food, MacLaren's had delicious pizza and salads and western comfort food. Would absolutely go back.

“European”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Altought it has pretty high prices for a Geogian bar, it really gives you the pub feeling you want by going there. Couple of imported beers and also one of the best burgers I've had in a while

“Bad management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Went to MacLaren's last night with a bunch of Georgian and foreign friends (one of them celebrating her birthday). We wanted to sing on karaoke. When we got there, a very loud band was playing and some people watched football on TV. We were told that karaoke would start in 15 minutes or so. So we ordered drinks. After a while, they told us that karaoke would start in an hour. We were upset, but decided to wait, so we ordered another bottle of vodka. After an hour, they told us that karaoke would start in 45 minutes. When we inquired about the reason, they told us that people were watching football on TV (with no volume on) and that karaoke would interfere with that (apparently that loud band was a part of the football show). Of course we were very upset, because the only reason we went there is that our birthday girl wanted to sing. We didn't care for the band, we didn't care for football and we could have drank vodka at any other place. We are not going back there.

I really liked this pub!
In the evening alive with live music, karaoke after midnight.
Very atmospheric and fun.

“MacLaren's Irish Pub - Best place in old town Tbilisi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had a GREAT night! Being new to Tbilisi we want to try everything it has to offer so why not try an Irish Pub? We had such a great time! We went on a Saturday night and I was surprised to see they had a nice crowd, great live music, karaoke, good beer and food is very tasty. The staff was great. Highly recommend!
