This one's for the dogs (and their humans)!
Fall trips and the holidays usually revolve around family, and for many of us, our four-legged members share a seat at the table, so to speak. Lucky for you, Chattanooga is super pet-friendly. We know it’s hard to leave your pups at home, so we make it easy for you to bring them with you. We even have some places especially for them like Play Wash Pint. While pets can’t dine inside, Chattanooga’s fall weather and fireside patios are perfect for dining with your doggos. Take it from these paw-some experts.

Universal Joint is located in an old Farrow’s Service Station, making the large patio the perfect place for pups to participate in a day out. Humans can enjoy a variety of lunch and dinner dishes, including sandwiches, burgers, salads, tacos and bar snacks, while they play a game of corn hole or catch a game on one of the TVs.

Self-service wash stations are stocked with shampoos, towels, a professional K-9 dryer, and grooming tools. But don’t forget about the pints!

Basecamp’s menu features items that the Southern owners grew up eating and continue to crave.
