Mocha Restaurant And Music Lounge Has Grand Re-Opening On Oct. 6

Friday, September 27, 2013

Mocha Restaurant & Music Lounge offers customers an explosion of culture and creativity for a truly unique and entertaining dining experience.  Inspired by and themed after The Harlem Renaissance era where creative minds thrived and empowered one another to greatness, Mocha  is the clear choice for lovers of soulful food and live entertainment.  Whether you'd prefer to indulge in one of the signature soul-inspired dishes or opt to simply lounge in The Savoy room while sipping on a delicious cocktail, Mocha Restaurant & Music Lounge provides the best of both worlds. 

Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, this 7,000-square-foot restaurant and music lounge offers three spacious dining areas including a private dining room (The Savoy) and VIP Lounge, two beautiful bars and an elevated stage accompanied with state of the art audio and lighting equipment.

Mocha cultivates a unique dining experience with a culinary menu which consists of Miles Davis Chicken and Waffles, Etta James Shrimp and Grits, 125th Street Ribeye Steak, Louis Armstrong Loaded Potatoes, Cab Calloway Crab Cakes, as well as pitchers full of its Signature Sweet Tea.

Advocates, artists, entreprenuers, intellectuals, style tastemakers and musicians alike convened at "speak easies" in Harlem and later abroad. The most famous of these extravagant entertainment havens being The Cotton Club.

Officials said, "The Cotton Club was intended to have the look and feel of a luxurious southern plantation. We took 125th Street to 511 Broad Street. Different mecca. Same renaissance. We invite you to our modern day 'speak easy' - Mocha Restaurant & Music Lounge. Where Jazz Meets Soul."
