Six18 Georgia Avenue Opens At Former Jefferson's Site; Cherry Street Brewing Opens At 300 Cherokee Blvd.; Sushi City Makes Debut On Lee Highway

Thursday, December 2, 2021 - by Gail Perry

A new restaurant has opened at 618 Georgia Ave. in the former location of Jefferson’s. Curtis Greene, owner of the new business, is also a co-owner of Chattanooga Cigar Club on Market Street.

 

Six18 Georgia Avenue is a restaurant and lounge with live jazz, that will be open six days a week for lunch and dinner and for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

On Tuesdays through Fridays it will close at 11 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday the business will be open until 2 a.m. The large space has a seating capacity of 100 in the dining room, an event space that will accommodate 30, and 50 in the lounge area. There is also outdoor seating.

 

The business received a beer license at the Chattanooga Beer Board meeting Thursday. It also holds a TABC license allowing both liquor and wine to be sold.  

 

Cherry Street Brewing in Northshore is taking over the old Heaven and Ale space at 300 Cherokee Boulevard, Suite 101-102. The facility is being renovated to add a kitchen and when that is complete the bar will sell both consumer and carry-out beer. The beer board approved a manufacturer/distributor license on Thursday until the remodel is finished which will allow the owners Richard and Alisa Tanner to begin the brewing process which takes four weeks before it is up and running.

 

Sushi City, open now at 6921 Lee Highway, offers dine-in food, both a la carte or from a buffet. The restaurant is in the space where Kacy’s Home Cooking was previously located. The owner was given a beer license and it also has a TABC license for wine and spirits.
