Market Square, Knoxville Reviews

  • This place is one of the reasons I love Knoxville. There's plenty to do at almost all times of the day. The nightlife is teeming with activity and is robust with diverse experiences. The restaurants are great on Market Square. You can get anything you want there and it'll all be quality. The clubs are fun and the music they have is as diverse as the crowd. You can watch people in the square milling about or dancing and singing.

  • I always enjoy going to Market Square. Usually something going on Saturdays and sometimes on Sundays. Cute shops. A wide variety of places to eat - from fast food to fancy fare. Bars with live entertainment too. It is kept clean and I have always felt safe walking around alone. One block from Gay St., historical museum, and walking distance to the University, art museum, James White Fort, and the 'Old City'.

  • A lot of little shops. The whole area had a great atmosphere. You can walk to the Tennessee Theater from here. It is a great place for pictures. You can stand in the street and get a picture with the Tennessee Theater sign behind you. There is an ally that has "graffiti" artwork.

  • Great meet-up place that has become the real Central heart of Knoxville. Live music, events, lots of good beer bars and trendy Old City part with galleries and eateries. All within a few blocks walking distance. Beautiful in the spring!!

  • It's a great place to meet people and enjoy great food options. Sometimes they offer live entertainment during the summer, free movies in the fall, ice skating in the winter and festivals in the spring. Oh and they have a ball drop at midnight on New Year's Eve it's really cool. Bars are in walking distance, it's right behind Gay Street, and for all those Pokemon go players there are a few pokestops and a good selection of Pokemon usually down there. Parking isn't convenient though.
