Syrup and Eggs, which has been operating in St. Elmo for the past two years, is moving to 107 Custom St. It is leasing the area at Dwell Hotel that used to be the hotel restaurant.
It will operate from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. seven days a week. The space will not be used other times except for special events.
Syrup and Eggs previously did not serve alcohol because of its proximity to a church, said owner Ocia Hartley.

will be opening soon. This bar will check IDs at the entrance where customers will buy a card that is good for two 16-ounce beers dispensed and tracked automatically.

The capacity of this bar is 120.
Ichiban 1, 5425 Highway 153, was required to get a new beer license because of an ownership change, as was Residence Inn Chattanooga Downtown which used to be run by Marriott. The beer license there will only be used for weekly manager meetings.
