One of the Scenic City’s most adventurous hotels is the Moxy – a mix between your favorite bar, your best friend’s backyard, a luxurious (but affordable!) hotel, and an artsy event space all in one! The Moxy isn’t just a hotel, it’s an experience. Moxy Hotels pride themselves on having fun and think that any day can be a party if you want it to be! Located in the vibrant, bustling Southside neighborhood, the Moxy is a great place to grab a quick bite, a fun cocktail, or a hot latte. There’s always something exciting happening so there’s no need to rush. The Moxy’s a place to sip, stay, and play, and no matter what you’re craving, the Moxy has something to satisfy all tastes.
At the Moxy, the party starts right when you walk in. Enter through the revolving doors and head straight for the front desk. You can’t miss it – it’s the bar! When you check in, grab your room key and a cocktail at the all-hours Bar Moxy. Bar Moxy is the heart of the lobby, but you won’t find any stuffy, uncomfortable chairs or sticky, dive bar floors here. It feels like a living room, outfitted with expansive, plush couches, smartly designed lounge chairs, and tons of fun art work, making it as welcoming as it is vibrant. The bar’s menu is packed with fun twists on classic drinks like the Got Moxy?, which adds a little flair to a daiquiri with dragon berry rum and black cherry. If you’re looking to try something new, order one of their handcrafted seasonal cocktails. The Fever Grass is “the perfect flu season” drink made with lemongrass vodka and ginger beer and is sure to help you ease into fall, or make a toast to summer anytime of year with an Aperol spritz. If spirits aren’t your thing, choose a beer on tap from one of Chattanooga’s local breweries like Oddstory, Naked River, or Wanderlinger, which even shares a parking lot with the hotel. Stave off any hunger pangs with one of the bar’s creative naan flatbreads with options like pulled pork and peppers, hummus and kalamata olives, or even s’mores. The food and drink are fantastic, but Bar Moxy doesn’t skimp on the vibe. After check in, head over to one of the bar’s awesome games. Go head-to-head in shuffleboard or challenge a friend to a game of pool – loser buys the next round! If the weather’s nice, head through the doors at the far end of the lobby and take advantage of the bar’s patio, decked out with Four Square, corn hole, and a second bar that’s a refurbished shipping container.
The bar’s open-flow floor plan makes it easy to commune with new and old friends alike, and with events happening weekly, you’ll never be at a loss for a fun activity. If live music is your style, hit up the covered patio for a rotating lineup of local bands and artists. Celebrate making it halfway to the weekend with The Moxy and Moonlight Roller for some roller skating and groove like it’s 1985! The Moxy takes its fun seriously and there’s always a new event or exciting pop-up taking place every week. And don’t worry if you’re a party animal who never wants the night to end – Bar Moxy is open 24/7, with alcohol served from 8 a.m. until midnight, then it’s food and non-alcoholic beverages only from midnight until mimosa time.
Not feeling a spot at the bar and just want to curl up with your favorite snacks and some Netflix? Stop by the 24/7 Pick-ups shop for a variety of grab-n-go provisions like yogurt parfaits, charcuterie boxes, spicy pickles, and soda. If you have a late-night sweet tooth, choose from all sorts of options from movie theater classics to premium chocolate bars. You can also stock up on a few local favorites like Noke’s Granola and Hoff Sauce. Whether your taste buds crave salty or sweet, there’s for sure a snack to satisfy your cravings any time of day.
If you can’t function without coffee, then you’re in luck! The Up/Down Coffee Bar right off the lobby has more than enough coffee to leave you energized and ready for the day. With both seating inside The Moxy and a walk-up window outside, Up/Down Coffee is the perfect place to sit and sip, or take your coffee on the go and explore the incredible Southside neighborhood. Try one of their signature drinks, like the Squeeze The Day, which combines their Nitro cold brew with a refreshing lemonade for a refreshing and revitalizing drink, or the Mellow Latte, a delicious combo of lavender and marshmallow. If your caffeine is strictly for performance, Up/Down also offers all the coffeeshop classics like drip coffee, cappuccinos, americanos, and hot tea. If you want a bit of a party in your coffee cup, add a shot of Baileys or vodka to your latte or get the Nutty Irish, their take on an Irish coffee that blends nitro cold brew, Irish whiskey, and hazelnut liqueur. Up/Down also offers delicious pastries like scones and homemade pop tarts and sandwiches from the always satisfying bacon, egg, and cheese to the PBB Waffle Sammie that nestles peanut butter, banana, and bacon in between two waffles. Add honey or syrup on the side for dipping. Open from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Up/Down offers plenty of time to get your caffeine fix.
