Yes, Chattanooga. The “Best Town Ever.”
Bellhops is located in the heart of Chattanooga’s Innovation District, on the fifth floor of a historic warehouse that also happens to house some of the best restaurants, shops, and bars in the city. If you’re unfamiliar with Chattanooga, do yourself a favor and visit. It’s been selected as Best Town Ever by Outdoor Magazine because of all the world-class hiking, rock-climbing, mountain biking, and water sports it has to offer. For a more relaxing time, there are plenty of local breweries and awesome eateries. And the longest you might spend in a car is when you drive down to Atlanta for a Braves or Falcons game.
