212 Market has been on the block since ’92, but what you might not know is that three women began one of the most local and inventive restaurants downtown.
212 Market is not only a place serving upscale food at affordable prices, it’s a place with a laid out bar that hosts a selection of liquors, beers, and whiskey (most of which are home to Tennessee).
Sally Moses, 212 Market’s manager and co-founder, explains 212 Market is much more than just a restaurant for business meetings and anniversaries; it’s an approachable restaurant that values local ingredients and products, local artists, conserving energy, and recycling. Most importantly, 212 Market provides a variety of original specialty seasonal cocktails made from local ingredients.
With spring approaching, 212 Market is switching up their winter cocktails for spring originals such as the Chattanooga Sour which includes Chattanooga Whisky, Tennessee Blackberry Shine, and Lemon Coconut Cake made with fresh lemonade. Focusing in on their Chattanooga Sour, you can see they take pride in using local ingredients. Besides the blackberry shine and whisky, the cocktail includes house lemonade and is topped off with a blackberry and lemon garnish in an old fashioned glass.
Why not try 212 Market’s arrangement of spring cocktails during the warmer season on their open solar deck overlooking downtown? The solar panels display their concern with energy conservation, but the deck is the perfect atmosphere for a nice spring brunch.
This weekday, take your pick at one of 212’s Market’s cocktails. Weekday happy hour is from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., which includes $1 off beers, specialty cocktails, and local food appetizers.
212 Market is more than just a space for anniversaries. It is a space that incorporates what it means to be a Chattanoogan by providing many qualities we all value.
