They are renowned for their commitment to sustainability, green business practices and for having a long history of dedication to the growth and vibrance of the downtown food and drink scene. One aspect of the restaurant that rarely gets the attention it deserves is the bar.
212’s generously stocked bar is tended by staff that are not only skilled in crafting the perfect martini, but can also recommend a stellar nosh to go along with your favorite adult beverage. There are single-malt and blended scotches to pair with their seasonal artisan cheese plate. The bartender can whip up a refreshing gin and tonic to sip alongside your Mediterranean sampler and they offer a well-curated selection of wines to pair with any of their delicious dishes.
Locals and visitors alike have found the restaurant’s location a convenient stop for an after-work burger and beer or a welcoming bar-away-from-home for the traveler who wants to get a good meal and a well-poured drink. For the discerning beer drinker, 212 Market offers well-known local and regional brews, such as Chattanooga Brewing Company’s Lager Verde, as well as a selection of bottled beers from small, artisan breweries that were chosen for their world-class quality and flavor. Each seasonal menu includes a set of accompanying custom cocktails, such as this season’s nutella martini - a decadent drink of Stolichnaya, Frangelico and Godiva Chocolate with a touch of cream. Be still my beating heart!
