Beer Licenses Approved At 5 Local Eateries

Thursday, April 1, 2021 - by Gail Perry

Five new beer licenses were approved at the Thursday morning meeting of the Chattanooga Beer Board.

 

They include Party Fowl Hamilton Place which is opening in the former location of Bar Louie at 2100 Hamilton Place Blvd. #238A. This will be the fifth location for the business and the first outside of Middle Tennessee, said owner Austin Smith. The restaurant specializes in Nashville hot chicken and offers “boozy slushies” and craft beer.

The restaurant also has a patio with fire pits. The opening for friends and families is Saturday, which will be closed to the public. The official opening will be Monday, April 5.

 

Nick & Norman’s, 1386 Market St., opened at the Chattanooga Choo Choo in December. As part of the original lease, the restaurant had planned to have a patio area, but that space has just recently been completed and it is now ready to open. Adding more seating to the original beer permit required a new application which was unanimously approved.

 

Fuji Steak & Sushi, 5437 Highway 153, was approved for a beer license on Thursday. The owner Chao Lin told the beer board that nothing would be changing except the ownership.

 

The Big River Grill Hamilton Place, 2020 Hamilton Place Blvd. already had a consumer beer license and at the beer board meeting was approved to add a catering permit. The business also has an ABC catering license for liquor and wine.

 

After the third appearance at the beer board, Ryan Rothermel and Rashell McKee owners Exile off Main Street, 1634 Rossville Ave. were approved for a new beer license after passing all inspections from the city. The new permit comes with the removal of Martin Bohannan from the license. Mr. Bohannan asked to make a statement under oath and on the record. He said that during the process of changing ownership, he had been falsely portrayed as calling police about the business. He told the board that he had not had a good working relationship with Mr. Rothermel but he does care a lot about the customers and employees at Exile and would not jeopardize their jobs.
