Welcome toWhiskey Thief Chattanooga

Ingrained 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. We invite you to enjoy an unforgettable cocktail experience at the only rooftop bar in Chattanooga.

How We Raise The Bar The Proof is in the Cocktail

A true celebration of Tennessee’s signature spirit, we have an arsenal of over 100 kinds of whiskey to stir up an Old Fashioned, or ask one of our master mixologists to craft a signature concoction that's all our own.

There's nothing old-fashioned about this maple-infused, barrel-aged classic made with George Dickel ‘Edwin Single barrel’ Tennessee whiskey, demerara and aged bitters.

WhatWe're Eating

No trip to The South is complete without the taste of homemade fried chicken. Sourced from local Joyce Farms, we serve ours with pickles and tangy mayo.
