Discover Chattanooga’s First True Rooftop Cocktail Lounge

Engrained in the fabric of distilling history, a whiskey thief is the Master Distiller’s most critical tool. As the name implies, this tool “steals” a sample of a whiskey batch straight from the barrel and then releases it into a cup. Whiskey Thief Chattanooga is named after this iconic tool and strives to celebrate Tennessee through the artful delivery of its signature spirit.

Walnut Street

Dedicated to our address and town, WALNUT STREET is an ode to Chattanooga. Tennessee-grown figs are infused with CHATTANOOGA WHISKEY (111 proof) for several days. The cocktail is served with a small measure of bitter Italian liqueur to balance the rich fig-infused whiskey, and touches of black walnut bitters and orange bitters round it out. Served down in a chilled glass with an orange oil expression, this signature cocktail tells stories about our home.

At Whiskey Thief providing our guests with the highest quality cocktails, and most attentive service is our perpetual goal. In order to deliver on that goal, it is important that we protect the space and time given to us by our guests. In practical terms, this means that Whiskey Thief doesn’t crowd or over seat the patio or inside lounge area. We value experience over dollars so you won’t find yourself stacked shoulder to shoulder with other patrons, rather, our guests are afforded the space to have an authentic, and memorable, cocktail experience true to Chattanooga.
