Mask On • Mask Off • Where are Masks Still Required?

We Wanted to Create a Resource for Patrons to Know Which Establishments are Still Requiring Masks. Nooga Nightlife does not take sides on either of these positions. We just wanted to have this as a resource for those wanting to get out. Please Understand that Some Info May Change When You Arrive at the Restaurant, So We Suggest Carrying a Mask  . . . Just in Case!

Again, We Cannot Express This Enough, The Service Industry Moves Quickly. So there is a Chance that the Above Changes. We are trying to stay on top of the Chattanooga Scene as much as Possible, but there will be changes that we do not get. We Suggest Carrying a Mask with You Just in Case!

Also please understand that Most every Restaurant & Bar are Understaffed & Plain Tired of Hearing about Mask Complaints . . . Please be patient, courteous, & Just Enjoy Yourself when You Get Out & About! Thanks!!
