This is an exterior wall of the former Ross Hotel in downtown Chattanooga. It is currently up for sale if anyone is interested.
But the bottom portion of it used to contain one of our old stomping grounds called, “Yesterday’s.” That was over 30 years ago. Argh.
Seems like…..well, yesterday.
I had no idea it used to be a hotel. I never gave it any thought past my time spent inside of Yesterday’s. It’s rival hangout was called the Brass Register a couple of blocks over. They both had bands and lots of college kids. They are both long out of business. Styles and tastes changed. Plus, we’ve had a massive renovation downtown. Places like those were no longer popular.
But back in their heyday…….! Wow. We had fun.
It would be really nice if someone could buy and restore the great hotel back to something great. From what I’ve been reading, it was quite a hotel.
