About

Common House Chattanooga is a chic wedding venue in Tennessee. Presenting a modern take on the age-old concept of a social club, this hospitality group welcomes couples to its newest property. Located at the heart of the city’s downtown, the club exudes effortless cool and a lively atmosphere. It is an ideal choice for hip, style-conscious couples.

Facilities and Capacity

Common House Chattanooga is a social club with community at its heart. The venue invites couples to celebrate with their nearest and dearest in a setting that is both strikingly modern and yet warmly familiar. Located in the historic YMCA building, the structure has been renovated with care and artistic flair. Guests will love its ample high-quality mid-century modern style furniture. The venue’s event hall, Ruby Hall, is defined by a tone of industrial elegance, featuring exposed brickwork, wooden rafters, and a statement piece chandelier. The room is lifted by splashes of playful yellow, and the room is flanked by a balcony from which couples can take in the party below. Welcoming up to 200 guests for a seated dinner, or 300 standing, it is a versatile setting for an unforgettable party. Alternatively, the property’s courtyard, The Garden, can host an extensive outdoor celebration. A smaller affair can be hosted in the Pennybacker Room. There are also guest rooms and a bridal suite available for couples to use when putting the finishing touches to their wedding day looks.

    Most incredible and unique wedding venue in Chattanooga

    If you are looking for a sophisticated and very cool venue for your wedding, you need to look at the Common House in Chattanooga. The venue is in the city on the south side of town with plenty of wonderful hotels and Airbnb’s for your guest to stay. There are multiple CH spaces to choose from depending on your wedding size. I got married in the garden, transitioned to the Penny Backer room for cocktail hour and then to the Ruby Hall for the reception. The bridal suite exceeded my expectations and was such a wonderful place to spend the day getting ready. Rebecca at the Common House was super responsive throughout the entire process and made sure that on the day of our wedding everything was executed to the letter. The food is AMAZING and came out hot and delicious. All our guest were impressed with the Common House and could not believe the beautiful architecture and wonderful service.

    Stunning venue

    Common House is a dream of a wedding venue! We rented the Pennybacker room for our rehearsal dinner and wedding welcome hour and Ruby Hall for our wedding day. Rebecca, the venue coordinator, was so helpful through every step of the process. She did so much to make our big day go flawlessly!
    I truly cannot express how beautiful this place is. The vibes are immaculate and the décor is brilliant. If you're considering getting married here, do it! I promise you won't regret it!

    All around great venue!

    The bridal suite is to die for! The venue is gorgeous, the food was amazing and the outdoor space was stunning. Our guest all wanted to be members by the end of the ceremony! Make sure if you are booking the outdoor space that you plan for a tent - we used Cleveland Tent Company.

    Common House - Chattanooga's reply:

    Thank you so much for these kind words! Common House is so lucky to have you both as members and host your big day. :)
