Chattanooga restaurant owner Jason Bowers recently opened his fifth venture, Fifty Fifty Wine + Martini Bar (50/50).

Different than The Bitter Alibi, The Daily Ration, Clever Ale House, and Civil Provisions and Bar — 50/50 will specialize in a robust wine and martini menu, while also offering a full bar, desserts, and shareables.

Much like the Southside spot’s name, 50/50 is a team effort between Bowers and Clark Holt.

Holt said a goal of the bar will be to demystify wines and spirits and offer a relaxed space for folks who are new to wines and martinis or identify as enthusiasts.

Choose your fighter: a cozy couch, a corner table, or the bar.

Speaking of the space, when you enter through 50/50’s doors you’ll find cozy couches and more intimate nooks to enjoy your drinks. Bonus: There are even some pieces from Holt’s travels and family heirlooms in the bar — you’ll have to ask about the stories.

There’s also elevated patio seating if you want to soak up the summer sun or be among the Station Street hustle and bustle later in the evenings.

We’re pretty big fans of the chandelier, too.

Let’s circle back to the menu offerings. You can expect a rotating + diverse drink menu, featuring seasonal and newer wines as they hit the market. Bonus: You’ll be able to try wines from all over the world, from California to Spain and France, without having to leave the Scenic City.

The wines are in good company with a martini + house cocktail menu to drink your way through. New to martinis? Holt suggests the “Kangaroo,” made with Tito’s Vodka, Vermut Blanc + orange bitters — a sweeter, more fruit-forward martini.

To pair with your drinks, 50/50 will have a small shareable + dessert menu. Offerings will change with the seasons, but we’re extra excited for the butter and cheese boards.

Ready to try out this spot for yourself? Stop by Wednesdays through Saturdays beginning at 5 p.m.
