CHANGES IN LATITUDE LOBBY BAR
Depending on your journey, you just might need to visit this bar immediately upon arrival to get your attitude ready to experience everything that the area and the hotel have in store for you. Have a ceremonial margarita and a light bite to launch your mountain escape and chill on the patio overlooking the Little Pigeon River or by the lobby’s stone fireplace.
CHILL BAR AND ROOFTOP POOL
The rooftop pool deck is a mini destination within the hotel and the best place in town to unwind. Work on your suntan, dip your toes in the water and relax with a frozen concoction from the Chill Bar or sneak in a nap in one of the shaded cabanas. After dark The Fountain Show and the Smoky Mountain Wheel light up the night for a vibrant view from the rooftop. The Chill Bar serves Cold Drinks, Margaritas, Ice-cold Beer, Sandwiches, Salads and Burgers.
MARGARITAVILLE COFFEE SHOP
Grab a quick to go coffee and breakfast sandwich to head out for a hike or linger over a latte and croissant as you map out your itinerary for the day.
Margaritaville invites guests to raise a glass and take a bite out of paradise and most of all to relax and have a great time. Music is the key ingredient that seasons this crazy concoction of coastal-inspired comfort food, hand-crafted beverages and island atmosphere that began in 1979 with a song that made us dream of escaping to an idyllic place called Margaritaville. The two-story restaurant, with multiple bars, an exterior patio overlooking the Little Pigeon River, a fire pit and live performance stage, provides an entertaining experience with something for everyone. The menu features signature food items like the Cheeseburger in Paradise™ and Volcano Nachos. Other entrée items include the Shrimp Louis Wedge Salad, Fish Tacos, Steaks, LandShark Lager Fish and Chips, Jimmy’s Jammin Jambalaya, Seafood Mac and Cheese and Buttermilk Fried Chicken. There are plenty of appetizers to share with a specialty margarita or one of the 5 o’clock Somewhere rum cocktails. Make sure to save room for the Chocolate Hurricane for dessert!
PAULA DEEN’S FAMILY KITCHEN
