Scruffy City Hall

ScruffyCity.com Welcomes you to our Cathedral of Entertainment and Libations, Scruffy City Hall!

With three levels of awesomeness, Scruffy can’t be beaten: 40 taps, 300 beers, 3 full bars, a medieval hall, two balconies (one overlooking the stage, the other Historic Market Square), a Rooftop Bar with a TreeTable Forest and CinePub Under the Stars, and entertainment every evening.

Scruffy City Hall is a NON-smoking venue everywhere inside, and includes Historic Market Square's ONLY public balcony overlooking the Square, the best stage for audiences to enjoy regional bands, a fantastic medieval space to host events.

For over 25 years, for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike, the West Family have been developing historic buildings and opening exciting shops, restaurants and bars in Downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. Currently, we own and operate a close-knit family of businesses on Market Square, including the original Keep Knoxville scruffy! shop Earth to Old City, plus the Scruffy City Barhop, which includes 10 bars: Preservation Pub (which houses a 1st floor Smokeasy, a 2nd floor Speakeasy, and a rooftop Magic Beer Tree in the Moonshine Garden), Uncorked Wine and Bourbon Bars (which also includes Oodles restaurant and catering), Scruffy City Hall (which includes a three bars and two balconies), and now Market House Café (from 7am -11pm dayly) with the biggest patio in Downtown Knoxville.

We offer some of the best choices in the region for dining, locally crafted beers, unique shopping, and a wide variety of bars featuring unbeatable ambiance and nightlife. Add to that three intimate stages hosting over 200 artists per month, our convenient location in the epicenter of the newly renovated and revitalized Historic Market Square, the fact that we are locally owned and operated, and we think you'll join us in repeating our mantra:

Keep Knoxville Scruffy:
Support local food, local music, local culture, local history, and local business!
