Chattanooga, Tennessee, is known for its rolling hills, Civil War history, and top ranked aquarium – but what about for its bar scene?
The Flying Squirrel has become quite the hot spot for the city’s young professionals and savvy visitors alike, and for good reason. The venue’s modern architecture and décor stunningly combines steel beams, wooden bars tops, and massive glass windows, allowing for a cozy yet chic atmosphere. Even more impressive? The menu. Bar food takes a sophisticated turn with options like duck tacos, crab rolls, and meat and cheese platters.
As for the cocktails (which is the part we’re digging the most), traditional cocktails take a personal and exciting twist, such as the Watermelon Old Fashioned or the Squirrely Temple. We’re particularly eager to try the delicious and deadly-sounding Traveling Mule, comprised of vodka, American-made moonshine, Captain Morgan rum or Chattanooga whiskey, and Pure Sodaworks habanero ginger beer. If you’re not as interested in nightlife, visit Flying Squirrel on a Sunday morning for a decadent brunch, complete with Spicy Shrimp & Grits and Sriracha Bloody Mary.
