The tapas menu here is unparalleled, and will delight your senses as much as the lively jazz music.

Not since the ill-fated Chameleon Club has Chattanooga enjoyed such an eclectic mix of people in one club. This newly opened (and, one hopes, long standing) club features a large dance floor, loud music, rude servers and the occasional live band. In other words, it is a perfect nightclub. College students are the primary patrons here, but it is not unusual to find the "older crowd" in attendance. In fact, there is nothing deemed unusual here. As the nights turn to morning you will find yourself dancing with an interesting cross section of society. $3 cover charge at the door.
A small yet prime location near Warehouse Row makes it a great stop for busy shoppers or hungry downtown workers. The evenings find a range of patrons, from college co-eds to bikers.

Domestic and imported bottled beer and wine is also served.
The décor is multi-colored furniture, surrealistic murals, mosaic floor, and bookshelves with numerous tomes. Performance artists and musicians make this an interactive coffeehouse. Start the morning with a bagel and some cream cheese ($2). Lunch offers wraps, soups, and fresh sandwiches, including Java chicken sandwich (half sandwich $2.50, whole sandwich $4) with white chicken and a pineapple and curry seasoning. Freshly brewed coffee complement the delicious desserts, providing the perfect ending to a delightful dining experience.
Serving hearty sandwiches, breakfast platters and desserts, this little cafe has been serving downtown workers and Read House guests for decades. The decor shows the age of the cafe: faded linoleum floors and cracked vinyl seats, but the food makes up for the lack of aesthetic charm. Guests of the Radisson Read House Hotel Suites often discover a simple breakfast or lunch is not so simple in the hotel restaurants. If you just want a quick bite and don't care so much about eating healthy, step around the corner to this convenient diner.
