STIR, State Of Confusion To Add Catering; New Entertainment Venue To Open On Southside

Friday, August 2, 2019 - by Gail Perry

Two established restaurants on Chattanooga’s Southside are adding catering services to their businesses including serving alcohol.

 

State of Confusion at 301 Main St., which has been open nearly a year, and STIR, 1444 Market St., that has been opened for four and a half years, share owners. Both were approved for a caterer beer license on Thursday morning at the Chattanooga Beer Board meeting.

 

Each of the restaurants also have licenses from TABC (Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission) which will allow them to sell wine and spirits while catering.

The sales at catered events will be made with licensed bartenders that will check IDs.

 

A new business on the Southside described as an entertainment venue will be opening at 301 E. Main St. by John Biondolillo, a former partner with the owners of Heaven and Ale. Pax Breu Ruim will sell beer, hard seltzers and ciders when it opens. Also, once a TABC license is obtained, it will also have wine. Small food items and cheese plates will be available for sale and there will be an event space in the back of the building with live entertainment at times. Service at the bar, which has a 130-person capacity, will all be from the counter where the bartenders will check IDs when beverages are ordered.

 

The board was updated about actions taken to penalize two businesses for selling beer to a minor. At the July 18 Beer Board meeting Mapco, 3709 Cummings Highway, was fined $1,000 for the second violation the store received within the past year. Smoke 1 at 2201 McCallie Ave., chose the monetary option of paying a $250 fine rather than the suspension of its beer license for three days. Both of the fines have been paid.

Good Sports Bar News

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu.
