The newest addition to the Southside is The Crash Pad, an "uncommon hostel" located behind Niedlov's on Johnson Street. The 5,000 square-foot facility can house up to 40 people, and opens for business on June 10.
Locals gathered at The Crash Pad on Friday for a ribbon cutting, sponsored by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. Co-owners Max Poppel and Dan Rose, along with manager Al Smith, wore custom-made velour tracksuits for the occasion.
