Frothy Monkey Southside Opening Monday at 6:30am

Featuring coffee, food, and wine throughout the day. Free coffee to celebrate.

(CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.) March 1, 2017 — Frothy Monkey will be opening its doors on Monday, March 6th at 6:30am in the Southside neighborhood of Chattanooga, TN, located at 1400 Market Street. The main entrance is on Market with access from the lobby of the Choo Choo hotel as well. To celebrate, the Southside location will be offering a free 8oz cup of drip coffee to all customers between the hours of 6:30a – 9:00a on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (3/6 – 3/8).

Like their other locations, Frothy Monkey Southside offers the comfort of a coffeehouse with an expanded menu of offerings for morning through the day and into the night. “We are unique in that it is not uncommon for our regulars to stop in [at Frothy] multiple times in one day- in the morning for coffee and breakfast, and then perhaps again later in the day for dinner or a beer after work,” states Frothy Monkey owner, Ryan Pruitt. The Chattanooga location will have equal emphasis on coffee, food and wine (as well as beer and cocktails). The space is centered around a large bar that on one side is a full service coffee bar and on the other, a full service bar serving wine, beer and cocktails. There will also be a late night menu served Thursday – Saturday 9p – midnight, which is a unique to this location. They also offer onsite and offsite event catering, and will host wine dinners throughout the year.

Frothy has renovated a portion of the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel building into a 4500 square foot full service restaurant. The thoughtfully designed restaurants will serve a wide variety of customers. From the families that come in for brunch, to an ideal date spot, to the perfect place to sit and work or have a business meeting, or grab a drink after work, they create a place where everyone feels welcome. The dining room includes a mix of tables, booths, bar seating, and community tables. There is seating in the main dining room, as well as on the mezzanine, outdoor patio, and in a semi private area at the back of the restaurant.

Frothy currently runs three full service breakfast through dinner restaurants, as well as a record store café and BAKERY by Frothy Monkey, all in the greater Nashville area. In 2014 Frothy Monkey began roasting its own coffee at its roasting and training facility at the INK Building in the SoBro neighborhood of Downtown Nashville.

They are suckers for restoring old and historic spaces and will be working with Tennessee architect Mike Borgelt of Gobbell Hays Partners, Inc. again to rehab the space. “We are extremely excited to have Frothy Monkey part of the transformation and rehabilitation of this building. And, there is no better fit, not only for our guests, but also the Southside neighborhood,“ states Choo Choo owner Adam Kinsey. “The offerings of Frothy Monkey are unmatched in the city and their focus on terrific tasting, healthy, and local food and experience will be a hit with locals and tourists alike.”

We’re a neighborhood concept.

The brand is heavily involved in the community and a proud member of the neighborhoods it serves. You can count on Frothy to deliver quality, creativity, and approachability in everything they create. Their relationships with farmers and others who care about where ingredients come from is at the center of who they are. Local collaborations with other partners, farmers and providers are beginning to form. “We’re looking forward to growing our brand in Chattanooga where we can support the local farmers, their businesses and their families,” said Frothy Monkey’s chef and partner Chase Ingalls.
