Top choice central asian in Dushanbe

For sweeping views over the city it's hard to beat the rustic, vine-draped open-air booths and thatch-covered chorpoy (bed-like platform) at Ghalaba. Serving tea, beer and cocktails, it makes the perfect place to unwind at sunset. Access is easiest by 10-minute taxi ride (20TJS) from the city centre; the adjacent cable car is not functioning.
