Knoxville, TN Travel Guide

Tennessee, UT, university of Tennessee, travel, knoxville, travel guide,
My first time to Knoxville, Tennessee was over New Years this year for a friend’s wedding!

We went for five days, and here is what we saw, where we ate and what we did.

We stayed at the Hyatt Place Hotel in downtown Knoxville on Gay Street. It was the perfect location. 

All the restaurants, bars and spots to see were within a 3-minute walk from the hotel.

The hotel also provides complimentary breakfast.

Oliver Royale- we went here for the rehearsal dinner and for New Years. The food is delicious, and it is definitely a restaurant that would thrive in New York with its upscale cuisine and French bistro style interior.

Not Watson’s Kitchen + Bar- a great spot for a burger and a football game! I grabbed a bite here before the wedding.

Pete’s Restaurant- a classic diner in downtown Knoxville.

The French Market Crêperie - authentic and delicious crepes!

Tupelo Honey- delicious southern cuisine with all day brunch.


Things to do (within walking distance from our hotel):

•Walk around Market Square (a set of blocks that form a square with lots of restaurants)

Peter Kern Library- a speakeasy behind the Oliver Royale hotel (The entrance is in the alleyway behind the hotel with the red lamp. The password is a series of numbers from the bar’s most recent Facebook page).

Clancy’s- a good old fashioned Irish bar right next to our hotel. We went here every single night.

Five Thirty Lounge- a rooftop bar on top of the Hyatt hotel.
