Georgia is often mentioned as one of the world centers of the club
movement, clubs are a very important part of both the entertainment industry and
the tourism business.
high level of development of this industry is confirmed by the fact that the Russian embargo which caused significant damage to the country’s economy hasn’t almost affected the club business.
“Tourists who are not afraid of the travel embargo visit our club,” – they say in the club Khidi commenting on the effect of Russia’s travel sanctions against Georgia.
They say the share of Russians among the club’s visitors was insignificant.
The owner of the night club Mtkvari Keta Gabunia has a similar opinion in this regard. She notes that Russians come in Georgia not for club entertainment.
“We did not lose the segment of Russian tourists that came to us, they continue to come to us. These are mainly young people who come here to have fun, they have friends here and political conflicts don’t affect them, ”she says.
We have a lot of foreign guests and often contact with hotels , they say that their sales have decreased by 80%. The Russian embargo did not affect Georgia’s club life in any way, ” Keta Gabunia notes.
In her words, clubs are facing difficulties due to the difficult economic situation in the country.
