A 780-foot glass bridge and diamond-shaped glass bar — suspended over a canyon — just opened in the country of Georgia.
The next time you go out for drinks, you could test your limits and visit a bar suspended more than 900 feet above a canyon.
That is, if you’re able to get to Georgia.
The country unveiled a new bar made of glass that hangs over its Dashbashi Canyon in Tsalka, Georgia.
That’s roughly a two-hour drive from the country’s capital, Tbilisi.
But that’s not all. The bar sits in the middle of a glass bridge stretching across the canyon that you’ll need to walk to get a drink.

The bridge measures 240 meters, or approximately 787 feet, long. It took roughly three years to build and cost an estimated $40 million.
Kass Group, the investment group behind the construction of the bridge, says it’s “a unique attraction for international tourists as well as local residents.”
Visitors say that in the beginning it was a little scared but after walking on it, it can feel very safe.

The project’s lead designer, Kass Group’s Tomer Mor Yosef, spoke with local newspaper announced – “The aim was to create an extreme, exciting, and unforgettable moment that would arouse all five senses of the guests and will manage to stay imprinted in their memory,” he told the newspaper.

He said the choice to fashion the bar after a diamond shape was inspired by the canyon beneath. “While planning the project, we altered the size of the V-shaped canyon and turned it into a diamond shape, which will be a resting place on the bridge. The tip of the diamond is pointing right at the river running underneath it”.
