Soaking in the last moments of summer is easier than ever at the Waterside Lounge’s weekly “Waterside Wednesdays.”
For the last three years, the Waterside Lounge has hosted live musical guests every Wednesday night, not only for the guests of Springhill Suites, but also for Chattanooga locals looking to enjoy the music scene.
“We have different local bands playing from six until nine, and a lot of times we will have a local food truck there as well,” said General Manager Ben Montgomery.
Currently playing at Waterside Wednesdays are local classic rock bands The Other Guys and No Big Deal.
These two bands paired together attract locals and guests looking for a relaxing night on the water. No need to worry about the weather conditions, Montgomery assures, as they have a place inside the lounge in the event of rain.
“Regardless, rain or shine, we have the live music here for all our guest and locals.”
Attendees should expect to hear not only classic rock but other genres as well.
“It’s a lot of classic rock type music, but it also varies,” said Montgomery.
With plenty of seating in the lounge, guests can enjoy a relaxing night alongside the water with easy access to food and drinks. “It’s more of a laid back atmosphere,” said Montgomery.
The lounge includes an outdoor patio along with a firepit for a perfect place to socialize with friends and family.
When asked what Montgomery’s favorite part of the event is, he spoke of the atmosphere just around sunset.
“My favorite part, in particular, is when the sun starts setting and the cool breeze starts coming and going…and then sitting back and listening to both bands.”
Before the summer comes to a close, be sure and check out Waterside Wednesdays hosted by the Waterside Lounge every Wednesday night from 6 to 9 p.m. This weekly event is happening every week up until Sept. 27. For more information, please visit https://www.chattanoogafun.com.
