Hair of the Dog isn’t just a pub, it’s a home.
It’s a place to go on days or nights, weekdays or weekends, whenever you’re in need of a place to relax and throw back a few with friends. Not only does it obviously offer a wealth of alcohol, but a variety of delicious food.
Hair of the Dog opened in 2005 with the intention of being a place to hang out, an authentic neighborhood pub. Owner Matt Lewis had dreamed of starting a traditional English pub for a long time, so when the perfect location on Market Street opened up, he jumped at the chance. Since then, Hair of the Dog has become a staple in Chattanooga’s community, especially among those who are fond of a good pint every once in a while.
When it comes to beer, they aren’t messing around. They have rotating seasonal drafts and a monthly seasonal beer list. For March, they have Sixpoint Sweet Action, Highland Devil’s Britches, and TN Brew Works Southern Wit available, just to name a few. They also do in house cocktail infusions. They have a draught from their sister pub, The Terminal, on tap at all times. Right now, they are featuring the delicious Smoked Vanilla Porter. They also have a local rotating tap that houses beers from as far away as Nashville and Knovxille, but often features local breweries like Chatt Brew, McHale's, or Hutton & Smith.
Equally as appealing as the beer is the savory food. They have pub classics like their famous Fish n’ Chips and Bangers and Mash, but some of their most popular features are ones unique to their pub alone such as Beer Cheese Soup and Rueben Rolls. How could you resist? Oh, and let’s not forget that they have partnered with Dinner Delivered, so if you’re having a craving but can’t manage to get off the couch, you can have the pub grub brought to you.
Hair of the Dog Pub is a one stop shop, or pub, if you will. You not only get great food, drinks, and service, but you get the benefit of feeling comfortable in a home away from home. Indoor or outdoor, cocktail or beer, burger or frittata, the choices are endless. Take a walk down Market Street and look for the building with a British flag for a door. Go on in, you’re in good company.
