Some might say that Chattanooga's City Center is "where the magic happens" and we really can't argue with it. Chock full of local restaurants, shopping, and some of the coolest start-ups in town, it's the place to be. Be sure to visit Warehouse Row to get a peek at what’s inside. Pick out a new outfit at Anthropologie or lululemon athletica, a cool piece for your home at Revival, a latte from Goodman Coffee and a pimento cheese & bacon burger or a marinated mushroom sandwich along with a side of roasted beets & goat cheese at Public House. There is so much more to enjoy at Warehouse Row, so be sure to carve out some time in your day to explore it all.
Miller Park & Plaza provides plenty of green space to just relax or attend special events including Movies in the Park or the free weekly Nightfall Chattanooga music series, held every Friday Night May-August. You will want definitely want to order the Sweet Fig or Drunk Pig pies at Community Pie, chicken flautas from Taqueria Jalisco 2.
One block away, you may encounter the ghost of Annalisa Netherly in Room 311 at The Read House, a hotel that recently completed a stunning $30 million Gatsby-themed luxury renovation. Treat yo’ self to the smoked fennel lobster bisque and a juicy steak at Bridgeman’s Chophouse or a handcrafted aperitif in the Bar & Billiard Room.
Located within City Center Neighborhood is the Innovation District where you will find The Edney Innovation Center with a co-working space on Floor Five (private space available also) because sometimes we have to work to afford to travel. The Chattanooga Downtown Public Library’s 4th Floor offers you the chance to print something on the 3D Printer, create a vinyl sticker or have your own video/photo sesh in the studio. You can even check out a lawnmower or sewing machine (well, maybe not if you’re visiting, but who knows?). Down the street is the Tomorrow Building micro-living apartments & short-term rentals (back to you wanting to move here) surrounding restaurants (like Lil Mama’s Chicago Style Hoagy) and Cooper’s Alley, a beautifully transformed alley with public art and patio access for the delicious restaurants along Cherry Street.
