Knoxville’s Historic Old City

With a unique history beginning before the 1850’s, The Old City is emerging as one of Knoxville’s premier downtown neighborhoods, offering a distinct experience to both residents and visitors.

The aptly named “Creative Corridor” is a thriving business center, home to graphic designers, website developers, art galleries, advertising agencies, architects, and world renowned photographers and filmmakers. Coffee houses and dining options abound, including authentic English and Scottish pubs, Italian dining and pizzeria, and a Chicago style deli that serves the fanciest flat-dogs one can find south of the Windy City. After-dark entertainment has been a staple of the Old City for years, including nightly live music and dance clubs, but the area is probably most well known as the undisputed center of East Tennessee’s independent music scene.
