So I was visiting Tbilisi in October and there was all this hype about this cub named Bassiani and its the best in Europe, exclusive not all can get in bla bla bla bla.... ok well I was not expecting to get in based on the fact that I was not verified. ok so I did get in. I've traveled around the world and definitely explored world class night clubs and festivals from Paradiso to burning man and Berghain to Rich's in San Diego and Hakkasan in Vegas to Europe to Asia. having said this Im going to give you some pros and cons.
Pros: -the sound system is pretty rad, especially at the main dance hall.
-the drinks are cheap
-there is lots of leg room and plenty of space to explore and walk if you get bored of one corner of the club.
-people are friendly ( once you get passed the door)
-unisex bathrooms
-none discriminative atmosphere once you get past the face control
cons- very smokey
-filthy bathrooms ( no toilet paper in any of the stalls)
-drug infested space ( I mean all the clubs have drugs but this place is an anarchist territory for all of city's drug users) . several times throughout the night had to check on people laying lifeless on the sides of the hallway who seemed to have overdosed. ( a little sad)
- lack of lighting and the visual stimulus, the beam lights are the only lights I got to see while I was there, from 12-7 am so the light show is very minimal and anti climactic to say the least.
-no age control, I saw kids as young as 16 doped up on stimulants and alcohol.

the final conclusion for me personally is that Im glad I went and got to see the place for myself, but as far as recommendations well , if you have never been to any clubs before anywhere, this will by far be the best you've ever been to. but on a world scale I have to say , this did not meet my expectations, it was dark dirty and dingy full of smoke and people drugged out of their f-ing mind.I highly recommend the venue do 21+ age control for the venue. also please hire extra janitorial staff to keep the bathroom cleanliness standards up. I don't recommend it, save your money and time and go elsewhere.

I’ve clubbed all over the world, and expected great things form here but it was really disappointing. Its like entering a zoo with all the barriers and surly bouncers and its really EXPENSIVE to get in as are the drinks. Music is ok if you like techno, but it's lacking in atmosphere and it's not very clean either. Drinks cost a small fortune.

Go to Old Meydan area instead, or just one of the smaller bars off Rustavelli Moeba is great.

I’ve been in many of clubs all over the world, But I really don’t understand why some people call this place one of the best in Europe !!!
After spending alot of time and getting entrance permission, You enter to a dark smoky place which has nothing else !
All people like zombies move up and down and I really couldn’t find any interesting things there.
We also ordered 3 beer and 2 shots of tequila and it cast a small fortune !
We paid about 95 lari and its 5 times more expensive than usual price !
The lighting was only positive point in this club. I liked it.

I am a die-hard techno fan and I've been to Berlin so many times. But when I went to Bassiani for New Years Eve 2018/19 it was the most amazing club experience of my life! The building is spectacular, the sound system great. The slight slope of the floor (former pool) made the sound come at me nicely. The people have no hesitation to dance even when the dance floor is still mostly empty - I appreciate that! They love the music and are very respectful. I felt very safe and comfortable. I've met very sweet Georgians who are still friends of mine today.

The sound was dark and complex. Abdullah Rashim hosted us for hours and the lighting was so minimal: one red ray of light down on the DJ. The atmosphere was sublime and I really loved it so much I went there again the day after and the day after that!

they are just so racist they cant even hide it. they differ people to let in by their not only outfits but appearances, skin color and even facial look. its widely open only for local weirdo ravers. Still it cant be worst experience u will have inside but if u got any sense of self-respect dont go in there, too expensive drinks - water outside: 0.5 gel, water inside: 3 gel. same with any other sort of drink. disrespectful guard: they can just come and talk rude language to u only for u checking ur phone. its not a techno rave club, its one good working business here like modernized restaurant or something.

Georgians, the most beautiful and the coolest people in the world, I had time of my life. Visited Berlin at least 15 times, been to Belgrade, to Warsaw, Ibiza, Barcelona, Lisbon, none of them tops Bassiani. Literally, the best techno club in the world.

Ok so we heard this club is the "Berghain" of east Europe. Seen tons of great reviews and a couple of "denied" ones. We're not exactly new at going to clubs and sent a txt on Facebook asking dress code? They said "none". So when we get there the main guy says something on his mic and then says "camera says no". After asking for explaining they don't give one and deny couple pretty girls and a good looking couple and let in a few 16 year olds "skater boys". Just seemed odd and would have liked some explanation. Perhaps they don't care. Not sure if I'd try again. I've worked in clubs and hospitality for 20 years.

It was terible, the worst experience of Georgian club I've ever had, you like yu you are fed, it was just for the people who use drugs, normal people are not interested in such bad place, after 2minuse we realize that the are just drugs and not at all, I feel like heart attack there, I talked with the manager to get the money back but he was used drugs too, I hat that place.
