The West Family of Businesses and the Market Square Barhop!
An iconic pioneer in the Downtown Knoxville Renaissance, the Mighty Mighty Preservation Pub has invested its profits for over 15 years into saving and revitalizing historic buildings (hence the name, "Preservation" Pub). Pres Pub is regularly voted Knoxville's Best Bar (and with 300+ beers on 3 floors (including the Magic Beer Tree in the Moonshine Roof Garden), live music nightly, delicious Guinness-crust pizzas, a fantastic 3-8pm Premium Well Happy Hour, and a commitment to the community, it’s easy to see why!)
Scruffy City Hall is Knoxville's Cathedral of Entertainment and Libations. From the TreeTable Forest with its Scroof CinePub under stars and a view of Knoxville's iconic Sunsphere rising into the western sky, to the 2nd floor Loggia Balcony Bar overlooking Historic Market Square, to the Gothic arches in its Viking-vibed Great Room, Scruffy City Hall is a working piece of art on 3 levels. On top of all this (literally), the Crystal Cave in the Clouds-- containing an 18' crystal waterfall-- is coming to the Scroof in 2017.
Uncorked Bar Books Vinyl Bistro contains K-Town’s Best Wine and Bourbon Bars, an interior courtyard for intimate dining, an expansive outdoor patio for people watching on Historic Market Square, and a kitchen specializing in delicious small plates to share. Uncorked has turntables in both both its Vino and Vinyl Bar and its Bourbon & Books Bar, so guests may choose the best vinyl in every genre of music to complete their experience in the beating heart of downtown Knoxville.
Containing a locally-sourced market, a cafe with a patio stretching from Market Square to Artist Alley, and a Scruffy City Visitors Center, Market House Cafe specializes in take-away or in-house gourmet sandwiches, barista-made coffees, a BAR with the freshest juices possible (vs a JUICE bar) and local microbrews. In addition, this gateway to Historic Market Square offers house-made charcuterie, artisanal breads and a cornucopia of cheeses.
Earth to Old City is the little shop that started it all for the West Family way back in February 1993. A quarter century later and still going strong, Earth to Old City remains a pioneer in Downtown Knoxville's Renaissance. This intimate retail boutique fulfills two distinct mantras, to "Seek the Unique" gifts from around the world for its loyal customers, and to support all things local as the "Keep Knoxville Scruffy" shop in Downtown K-Town.
Keep Knoxville Scruffy!
Support local food, music, culture, history and businesses.
