Welcome to the Southside! Come Thrive With Us!

The Southside District, once an urban hub of industry in our community, turned into an area filled with abandoned warehouses and rundown buildings during the mid-20th century. Encompassing the area from 12th to 20th Streets between I-27 and Madison Street, Southside has earned its reputation as a hip, cool, urban community.  Its renaissance began more than ten years ago as investors, developers, and entrepreneurs began to recognize its potential as a live-work-play community.

An area once forgotten, the Southside has transformed itself into a vibrant, diverse, and desirable place to live. Visit the restaurants, art galleries, parks, shops, and much more. At any given time, you could find yourself in the company of a US Senator, a biker, a college kid, an artist, a tourist, or even a longtime Chattanoogan. What makes Southside so desirable? The eclectic mix of art, entertainment, cuisine, and people!

In addition to the sculptures and murals you will encounter while strolling the streets, Southside is also home to many art galleries and studios. You are surrounded by entertainment at Track 29 and Comedy Catch, fun at Clyde’s on Main and Southside Social, and more food than you have time for! Drop into Bluegrass Grill, Alleia, Easy Bistro & Bar, Flying Squirrel, or Terminal Brewhouse for local fine-dining. Spend the day shopping at Warehouse Row and finish out the evening dining in the GORGEOUS Chattanooga Choo Choo. Need a place to stay? There are many options of places to live and stay within Southside; whether it’s a hotel for the night, a rental for a while, or a historic house for the long term!

Fun fact: There are more than 50 small businesses in the neighborhood that help bring it to life!
