    The Terminal Brewhouse: The Terminal Brewhouse

    by butterflykizzez04 Written Mar 31, 2014

    Sunday, March 30th, Tony and I stopped at the TERMINAL BREW on our way of town, located right off Market Street and across the street to the Chattanooga CHOO CHOO Hotel which is the old Terminal Train Station in the years gone by.

    The Terminal Brewhouse is located in the over a hundred year old building known as the Strong Building..it has a colorful and checkered past..original a hotel to accommodate the weary travelers from the train station..but later became a casino and beer joint during prohibition and even a house of ILL REPUTE...a nice way of saying " Cat House" or "Whore House", but no matter how you refer to it...it is full of HISTORY..

    Now the Brewhouse offers three different levels. A very large opening in the stairway area so you can go all the way up or even go down to the large shiny Beer Processing tanks... truly beautiful building. I can't keep my eyes off of it, inside and out...

    We didn't eat anything but we did look over the menu. We had already eaten at three previous locations and was not really hungry. I ordered a soda and Tony opted for a House Brew called "ALTBIER" a german lager sort of dark but not to bad....together with tip just a little over $500 and tip...
    I would go back again if I was in the area but would NOT SEEK them out..
    Tony didn't like the fact no domestic beers...
    Waitress wasn't that friend.y...

    Hair of the Dog: Hair of the Dog

    Tony and I was out strolling in Chattanooga on this lovely Saturday afternoon, and we happened upon the Hair of the Dog...the name caught our attention and the door has a British flag painted on it..YOU HAVE TO GO IN!!!

    I first of all noticed the dark oak paneling in the room. I love this dark wood. It gives a warm glow and home feeling..I love it...but I might be weird...lol
    I am majorly into the detail of things..There is an upstairs eating area..next time (mental note) go upstairs..

    We found a small booth in the back near the bar and doors to the outside patio area. There is smoking allowed. This is a 21 and up only club..no kids allowed..you can't even bring your babies ...YUPPIES!!!!

    Tony chose a 16 oz PBR for only $2.50 and I ordered a soda..we looked at the food menu and I noticed some really great menu items for future visits. The prices are awesome and the service very friendly.
    I would go back again!!!

    The Pickle Barrel

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Aug 18, 2012

    On our visit to Chattanooga, we just wanted to grab a beer and enjoy a quiet evening out. After dinner at the Terminal Brewhouse, we wandered a few blocks down the street to the Pickle Barrel. This is a true dive bar, full of young locals, probably a number of UT Chattanooga students and even more dropouts. It is a dive bar, but a friendly place.

    We sat at the bar near the restrooms and ordered a few beers. I had a New Belgium Brewing Company 1554 Enlightened Black Ale, which was fantastic. Surprisingly, this was one of the few microbrews on tap, along with some big chain brews like Amber Bock.

    The bar is housed in a unique triangular-shaped building that is squeezed between angled streets. You can go up the spiral staircase and eat or drink on the open-air roof-top deck. That might be a better option than sitting in the run down interior that is decorated with dollar bills and graffiti.

    Nightlife Hangouts

    by soundsgoodtome Updated Jul 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chattanooga in the past has had the reputation that it is not a good city for nightlife. However, I believe that it is getting better, although still not comparable to larger cities. There are only 3 good dance clubs that I know about, not counting those that cater specifically to non-heterosexuals. Voodoo is the only one of these 3 downtown, located at 4th and Market, which I have heard is pretty good. The Drink, located on Brainerd Road beside Chili's Restaurant, has been there for several years. Lastly, the Electric Cowboy is another new club very close to the Drink. It is located in the Eastgate Town Center beside the YMCA.

    If bars and lounges is what you want, then you have plenty to choose from all around town. There are several good ones downtown, on Brainerd Road, and in other areas of town. The Tortilla Factory downtown has an open-air Rooftop Bar with dancing that is okay too. All clubs and bars must close by 3.

    Terra Nostra: Wine Bar & Tapas on the North Shore

    by anderschwan Written Sep 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Terra Nostra

    This is the ONLY place to have Tapas in Southeast Tennessee. It serves a variety of International Cuisine — from Spain, Italy, France, etc. The Wine Bar is fabulous and the ambience is great. They only stay open til 11 so it is a good late night date spot. They also have wine tastings and cooking classes outlined on the website.

    Dress Code: Casual but fashionable (for Chattanooga anyway)
