What a lovely place!
This place is so nice in every way. First you will have the chance to see a beautiful and true Georgian house that is carefully maintained by its residents. And inside is a small shop with a selection of artworks and gifts by many gifted artists. I love the idea and it inspires me how the nice people behind Gallery27 make this a place that you really need to see, if you want to bring handcrafted gifts from your journey to Georgia. I will come again
One of the best gallery and souvenir shop in Tbilisi, with beautiful handmade silk scarfs and lots of other beautiful things, if you wish to buy something different than you should visit that place.
Gallery 27 is an offshoot of the famous Maison Bleue house that brought modern and high quality arts and crafts to Georgia in the 90s. Its merchandise looks like true artefacts influenced by the rich Georgian traditions that have been given a modern twist in terms of quality and comfort. As far as the taste and colors are concerned, Gallery 27 has probably the best choice. Leaving everything else aside, you must visit it simply to experience the beautiful hallway and the balcony with tinted glasswork that has been beautifully restored. Not a place to miss, even if you’re not looking for souvenirs!
While taking a stroll in the old city don’t miss this cozy precious place. With a beautifully arranged interior and a very special selection of handmade souvenirs, especially painted silk this place will offer you a piece of Georgian soul you can carry with you!
