Chattanooga's Bode boutique hotel adds Dawn coffee shop and Dusk cocktail bar

A downtown boutique hotel in Chattanooga is adding new food and drink options for overnight guests and local patrons from Dawn to Dusk.

The Bode hotel, which opened in 2019 in the former Clemons Lofts apartment complex at Chestnut and 8th streets, recently added a cocktail lounge known as Dusk in its first-floor entry area and by July 15 will add a coffee bar known as Dawn on the other part of the first-floor entrance.

Zion Freeman, brand manager for the Irvine, California-based based investment group that owns the Bode, said in a phone interview Thursday the additions are designed to better utilize the first-floor space in the 6-story building, create a more inviting environment and offer more food and beverage options for hotel guests and downtown patrons.

"We hope to roll out other Dawn and Dusk locations at some of our other hotels, but Chattanooga is the first facility to get these new additions, and we think they will be a great addition for our guests and for downtown workers and visitors looking for a coffee or breakfast treat in the morning or a cocktail at night," Freeman said.
