Dining

Dining

Dine under chandeliers and inside renovated train cars, pour your own all-American draft beer, or sip premium scotch in the hotel’s charming rose gardens. Food and drink at The Chattanooga Choo Choo is as eclectic as the hotel itself.

Frothy Monkey — Try Southern specialties in a casual setting at the hotel’s all-day diner and coffee house, either in its spacious dining room or on the garden terrace. Start the day with whole-grain pancakes, stop by for a leisurely lunch, or enjoy burgers and loaded flatbreads at dinner.

Backstage Bar — Kick off a memorable evening at the hotel comedy club with live music and an extensive wine and whiskey list at the Backstage Bar. Indulge in comforting barbecue pulled pork and mac ‘n cheese, or try the Bucket O’ Bubbles weekend brunch with make-your-own mimosas.

American Draft — Pour your own drink in this historic train car. From pale ales to stouts, choose from a selection of 29 draft American beers as you soak up the charming Chattanooga atmosphere.

STIR — With bartenders carving sculptures out of ice cubes before your eyes, a menu of mouthwatering, expertly-crafted cocktails using only premium spirits, and a raw oyster bar, STIR is an experience you’ll never forget.

Activities

Activities

The Chattanooga Choo Choo offers plenty of activities and entertainment. Swim in the hotel’s indoor pool, play chess or checkers on life-size boards in the Glenn Miller Gardens, or relax with a good book in the Victorian gazebo. Stop by the Comedy Catch to see performances by top stand-up comedians, then stock up on whimsical souvenirs from in-house stores Sweetly Southern (the oldest gift shop in Chattanooga) and Refinery 423. Finally, get your heart racing with an Escape Experience, where you will feel as though you are on a runaway train.

If you feel like stepping out of this wonderland, head to the Bluff View Art District for a day of culture in its galleries, museum, and sculpture gardens. Learn more about the city’s heritage at the Battles for Chattanooga Museum, see some of the finest guitars ever made at Songbirds, with models ranging from the 1920s through the 1970s, and for a romantic evening, take a horse-and-carriage ride to Miller Park.
