Never a dull moment—or a dull pizza
There are a number of pizza places in Chattanooga, but there’s one well known for its pizza, beer, art—and mellow ambiance.
Starting in Atlanta in 1974 as Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers, Mellow Mushroom has since opened several locations across the United States, including its first Chattanooga location downtown in 2002, and its second at Hamilton Place in 2012.
Celebrating 40 years of craft pizza and beer, hoagies, hummus, buffalo mozzarella meatballs, oven-roasted wings, salads, calzones, and specialty cocktails, Mellow Mushroom creates a new mellow experience for customers each time they visit.
For those few who haven’t been to Mellow Mushroom, popular pizzas include the Kosmic Karma (a red sauce base with feta and mozzarella cheeses, spinach, and sun-dried and Roma tomatoes with a pesto swirl) and the Mellowterranean (an olive oil and garlic base with all-natural grilled chicken, onions, roasted red peppers, black olives, chives, and feta and mozzarella cheeses with a side of tzatziki sauce).
Specialty pizzas aren’t the only stars at Mellow Mushroom. Put your culinary skills to the test and choose your own sauce base, cheeses, meats, fruits, and veggies to build your own pizzas, calzones and salads. Topping favorites such as black olives, mushrooms, Italian sausage, and pineapple—as well as not-so-common ones, like avocado, tofu, broccoli and bleu cheese—create endless possibilities for a pizza masterpiece.
If you’re looking for a nice cold beer to complement your food, Mellow Mushroom won’t let you down. With 40 beers on tap downtown and 64 at Hamilton Place, including popular and seasonal brews, customers are sure to find either a beer they’ve had before, or a new favorite they haven’t tried. If you’re having a tough time choosing which to try first, Mellow Mushroom offers flights of four beers for sampling.
Game-night fanatics should head downtown at 7:30 p.m. on Monday nights and to Hamilton Place on Thursday nights for live trivia. Looking for a fun night with the kids? Mellow Mushroom at Hamilton Places hosts a family night every Friday starting at 4 p.m. With an adult purchase, kids’ meals are 99 cents, and as you wait for your food, prepare to be entertained by an illusionist.
Additionally, Mellow Mushroom offers $3 gathering hours every week, Monday through Friday, from 3-7 p.m. Grab a beer, a glass of wine, or a cocktail and get a bite to eat with a selection of Mellow Mushroom’s “munchies”—pretzel bites, Capri salad, bruschetta, and hummus—each for $3.
Mellow Mushroom not only strives to create a mellow atmosphere for customers, but they also have their own “customer appreciation” day on Mondays, during which customers can order small cheese pizzas for $5.
The party continues on Thursday for $2 wine nights and on Sundays for $1 Bud Light, Shock Top and Yuengling drafts.
Casual and fun hangout with great pizza and lots of craft beer.
Craft pizza, craft beer.
