Schedule of Events



Preservation Pub is located on beautiful, dynamic

Historic Market Square, Knoxville


For over 21 years, for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike,

we've been developing historic buildings and opening exciting shops,

restaurants and bars in Downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.


Currently, we own and operate a close family of businesses

on Historic Market Square, including

Preservation Pub, Knoxville Uncorked,

Earth to Old City, and now Scruffy City Hall.


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 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!
