Mirage
718 South Gay Street
Koxville, TN
 
Tap Room
(865) 673-8393
2200 Cumberland Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Tap Room - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.

Carousel
(865) 522-6966
1501 White Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Carousel - Dress up. Carousel isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.

Friends Inc
(865) 525-9656
1717 White Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Friends Inc - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Friends Inc is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Friends Inc is more than able to oblige.

Preservation Pub
(865) 524-2224
28 Market Sq
Knoxville, TN
Description
Preservation Pub, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Preservation Pub.

Electric Ballroom Inc
(865) 522-9494
1213 Western Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Electric Ballroom Inc - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Electric Ballroom Inc kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Long Branch Saloon
(865) 546-9914
1848 Cumberland Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Long Branch Saloon - Sometimes you just don't want to pay $12 for a drink. On those nights, head out to Long Branch Saloon, located at [Address]. And while they may be cheaper, they're definitely not weaker.

West Haven Sports Bar & Grill
(865) 544-1992
2906 Sanderson Rd
Knoxville, TN
Description
West Haven Sports Bar & Grill is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of West Haven Sports Bar & Grill

Beer Sellar
(865) 521-7464
1829 Cumberland Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Beer Sellar - If you have to work the next morning, we bet a thousand bucks you're going to call in sick. That's because Beer Sellar, at [Address], is open all night. So the odds of you getting a good night sleep are closed to zilch - we predict you stumbling home around 8am and flopping into bed, forgetting to brush your teeth. And nothing wrong with that.

Pilot Light
(865) 524-8188
106 W Jackson Ave
Knoxville, TN
Description
Pilot Light - So it's midnight. You're still feeling it. You're still buzzed. Why go home? You don't have to. Pilot Light, located at [Address], is open well after normal closing-time, so you can keep the vibe going until it's scandalously past your bedtime.

A big part of most New Years Eve party's is various alcoholic drinks.
