From the Guys that Brought You The Bitter Alibi & The Daily Ration . . . Here is What they Said about the New Spot:
Red Bank’s Atypical Alehouse
In 2022, our team was living in Red Bank and really needed a place to unwind, grab a pint, and try some “clever” food. What started as a side hobby has now turned into a full fledge neighborhood spot.
Settle in for a quick bite, a long conversation, or a drink after a long day at work or grab some food for your family at home.
It all started nearly 8 years ago with a basement bar in downtown Chattanooga, The Bitter Alibi. Two years later, we opened a breakfast and brunch spot in the Northshore neighborhood, The Daily Ration. Both of these places embody everything we’re about—quality food and drinks and most importantly, a place where people can come as they are and hang out with each other.
As residents of Red Bank for a few years who are raising our families here, we saw a need for a cool, comfortable place to casually sit back, relax, and meet with friends, family and neighbors. So we took what we knew about starting a restaurant and wanted to bring one to our own neighborhood to create a fun watering hole for the community for everyone to enjoy.
Community Centered in Everything We Do
We are committed to featuring local, high quality products produced by our neighbors whenever possible. For our mug club, we are currently working with a Red Bank ceramic artist to produce our mugs. We’re also working with Bread & Butter to incorporate their bread into our menu. These are just a couple of examples of local partnerships we want to be a part of Clever, among many others to come.
We have also been in talks with local nonprofits, such as the White Oak Bicycle Co-op and Trust for Public Land, to work together to help support their missions through giveback nights and other fun events where can collaborate.
We’re still working on our food menu (which won’t be huge but will be gooooood), so more to come on that, but we are really excited about bringing some unique food options unique to the Red Bank community.
