Tremont Tavern Celebrates 10 Years In North Chattanooga

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

North Chattanooga's Tremont Tavern marks its 10 year anniversary on Dec. 9 and 10. The two-day celebration will feature live music, beer and food specials along with door prizes.

Mike McDade, Gabriel Newell and Jordan Hallquist and The Outfit will kick the party off on Friday. The anniversary celebration will continue on Saturday with live music from BJ Hightower, Slim Pickins, TJ Greever and Danimal Pinson. 

Dissatisfied with corporate America, Dustin Choate saw a vacant building as an opportunity, deciding to follow his passion. Opening in December 2006, the unassuming neighborhood pub has doubled in size over the years, transitioning from a hidden hole-in-the-wall into a restaurant boasting numerous
accolades and awards. 

Known for its laid back, welcoming atmosphere, Tremont Tavern takes burgers and beer very seriously. Using their own proprietary grind and blend, Tremont has become just as much a restaurant as pub. Blending ideas from the culinary team with suggestions from customers, the North Shore favorite has developed a small, but unique menu that appeals to many different tastes, said officials. 

Mr. Choate jokes, “I knew we had made it when a 90-year-old mother and her 70-year-old daughter would walk down the hill from Rivermont once a week for a burger and a beer.” 

From politicians to twentysomethings, the crowd at Tremont is as unique as the food. Families with
children and late night drinkers alike, find themselves at the “Cheers of Chattanooga.” 

While the draft selection and craft burgers made them famous, the role the small bar has played in the
city’s music scene is something that Mr. Choate is the most proud of. Tremont’s open mic nights and live music weekends have given many area musicians their start. “These musicians started with us in the beginning. It’s been really great to watch them grow to have a regional following.” 

Tremont Tavern was selected as a Best Burger finalist as the Best Place to Have a Cold Beer. They were featured in Garden and Gun’s “Best Burgers in the South”, Foodiehub’s “Top 50 Feasts in North America” and were among the ranks for Urbanspoon’s “Most Popular U.S. Restaurants and Bars”.


Moe’s Original Bar-B-Que Brings Old-School Flavor To New Chattanooga Location

Fifteen years ago, three guys from Tuscaloosa, Ala., bought a gooseneck trailer and started a summer barbecue business on a street corner in Edwards, Colo. Each day, they put out hay bales for seats and wire spools for tables, and diners could not get enough of their freshly-smoked meat. When they sold out of food for 100 days straight three summers in a row, the ...

Charles Siskin: Yellow Split Pea Soup Goes South Of The Border

Where are those dark cold days of winter? Being superstitious I shouldn’t ask but so far, Ground Hogs, those little rodents notwithstanding, we are having another amazing winter.  Okay I lost my lantana but they should make an encore appearance before long.

Embrace America - And Response (2)

Okay, Hollywierd we get it. The world of entertainment and cinema arts do not support President Trump. But for all their derisive and divisive speech, truth remains. People who support conservative values do not hate children, we do not hate immigrants, we do not hate other races and ethnicities although that is all you trumpet at every opportunity.  What we do support ...

Roy Exum: Way 'Over The Line'

Every day last week a Chattanooga woman sent me a press release for a “Recess Week of Action,” which was the greatest example of “an exercise in futility” that I can recall in recent years. I absolutely refuse to attend, write, or publicize such a group of admittedly-questionable political agitators. Please, I have never seen anything like this! Sometime soon, I suspect, the truth ...
