Picturesque views, lush green expanses and a moment in nature are just what this spectacular new diamond-shaped glass restaurant and bar can now provide its customers. Dangling about 900 feet above the Dashbashi Canyon (also known as Tsalka Canyon), it’s about a two-hour drive west of the capital city, Tbilisi in southern Georgia.
The project was constructed by investment group Kass Group, which operates in Israel and Georgia, the huge transparent structure, which rises to 280 meters (around 919 ft) stretches across the natural monument, offering panoramic views of its stunning waterfalls and caves. One of the key highlights of the bridge is undoubtedly its multi-level diamond-shaped bar, located at its highest point, which opened on June 14. Standing at 787 feet, it is said to be the largest and tallest hanging structure in the world. Kass Group calls it the crown jewel.
Made of steel and glass, it took around three years to construct, and the hanging bar has reportedly been submitted to the Guinness World Records with hopes it will be certified as the restaurant suspended at a highest point from a bridge. Tomer Mor Yosef from Kass Group also revealed that the diamond-shaped bar was inspired by the canyon itself.
The transparent structure will have new breath-taking viewpoints of the Canyons, the Ktsia River flowing through volcanic rocks, waterfalls and diverse wildlife in the area.
What’s more? The project, which is estimated to have cost around $40 million, also includes a zip line for guests to bike across and a cliff swing. There will be laser light shows that can be seen from the visitor’s centre and the restaurant. In the coming months, one can expect to find an exclusive resort including 100 premium units.
