#4 The Bitter Alibi – 825 Houston Street

Very cool atmosphere. Located downstairs with kind of that “speakeasy” feel to it. The Bitter Alibi is a great Brunch Restaurant and Modern Pub, very rustic and warm and serving an inventive brunch fare, burgers, craft beer & cocktails. Make some time and stop by.

Located among the Chattanooga downtown landscape, don’t let the name of the place fool you. This extremely mellow bar with pool tables and darts is always serving up exceptional food and good times to all. Filled with craft beers and premium booze, there is something for everyone.
