Wired Coffee Bar Expands With New Event Space

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Wired Coffee Bar, a gathering spot on Main Street in the Ooltewah/Collegedale community, has finished completion of a nearly 1,500 square foot event space that includes an outdoor deck. 

“We continually have requests for meeting and event space, from both individuals and businesses alike, and Wired has now responded to these requests," said Lisa Goolsby, owner of Wired Coffee Bar.  "The local community is seeking a casual environment for business meetings as well as a location to host showers, dinners, church groups and private parties. Our new event space will easily be able to accommodate most of these needs." 

With room to accommodate up to 99 people, the new rentable space can be reserved in advance and configured to meet many different needs from sit down dinners to small groups, parties and business meetings.

“On the first Friday of every month Wired Coffee Bar has hosted the Ooltewah/Collegedale Chamber of Commerce’s morning coffee networking meetings, and this new event space will provide the room to meet and mingle that they’ve been needing,” said Ms. Goolsby. “We look forward to having their next monthly meeting in our new space.”
