  • Sapphire: A Modern Restaurant and Bar
    For more than 70 years, jewels used to fill the African mahogany cases lining Sapphire's walls. The dark wooden cabinets remain, although they now brim with more than 40 kinds of vodka, Tennessee and Kentucky whiskeys, and rums from Central and South America. Sapphire may no longer drape its customers in precious gemstones, but it does aim to preserve the sense of elegant refinement that characterized the historic building for decades. This commitment is readily apparent in the menu of upscale cuisine that includes meats, cheeses, and seasonal produce from local vendors such as Sweetwater Valley Cheese, Painted Hills Beef, and John Mixon Farms. These ingredients appear throughout the selection of regionally inspired dishes, including boursin mac 'n' cheese, pimento pork bites, and almond-dusted chicken served with roasted brussels sprouts and sweet-potato gratin. On Thursday through Saturday evenings, the elegant environment in the long, narrow room becomes livelier as the night progresses and DJs begin their sets. Upbeat rhythms echo off the high ceilings and the vintage mahogany woodwork while patrons enjoy one of the martinis that earned Sapphire a spot on Metro Pulse's Best of Knoxville every year from 2011 through 2014.

    Kids bounce inside a truck, giggling and showing no signs of settling down. At Bounce USA, youthful antics aren't suppressed. Instead kids are encouraged to burn off extra energy and nurture their imaginations. Ten inflatables, such as the truck or a basketball court, house tunnels, slides, and air-filled obstacle courses. Kids aged 2 and younger even have a giant inflatable all to themselves, replete with a ball pit and oversized blown-up blocks. To get the most out of the facility, parents can choose from four party packages, which include an attendant to serve cake and pour soft drinks as well as organize games of inflatable Twister, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, and Pin the Apology Letter on the Donkey's Front Door.

  • Knoxville Opera
    The Knoxville Opera sings most of its notes in a venue befitting the regality of its material: the Tennessee Theatre. The former movie-house and decades-old stage swathes performers in Spanish-Moorish design, a strikingly blue domed ceiling, burgundy velvet seats, and gold accents. But the opera singers don't keep their voices contained there. Education and outreach programs send them throughout the community, performing at schools, shaking the downtown streets during themed festivals, and aiding local construction companies by shattering old glass buildings.

  • Cherokee Caverns
    The Cherokee Caverns first started forming 300 million years ago. Today, their stalagmite- and stalactite-filled underground chambers are maintained by volunteers who open them to the public several times a year for special events, including Sunday night concerts, a Halloween trick-or-treating event, and Christmas in the Cave. (The holiday celebration makes the most of the cave's comfortable, permanent internal temperature: 58 degrees.) Below, some landmark moments in the caves' transformation from loose shells, sand, and clay into a modern-day social hub. Pre-1854: Native Americans discover the cave, as indicated by ancient torch-marks on the cave walls. 1854: A local farmer, Robert Crudington, rediscovers the caves. He noticed an eerie fog rising from the rocks covering the cave mouth. 1929: Crudington's daughter, Margaret Gentry, hosts the first public tour of the caverns. Between 1947 and 1960: Homer Harris, known as the world's tallest singing cowboy, holds a Western music show in the caves with his trick horse, Stardust. 1960s: A chef starts a restaurant in the cave mouth. Showing great self-restraint, he does not call it "Mouth Food." 1980: The restaurant burns down, seriously damaging the cave and ushering in an era of neglect and vandalism. 1990s: Volunteers take over the caverns, turning them into the event space and geological education site they are today.

  • Bijou Theatre
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Bijou Theatre facet_type_id: 95777a70-5f3a-1032-bef4-585b6c6c9f11 html_text: |- The Bijou’s origins stretch back through American history, but it didn’t become a theater until relatively recently: 1908. For nearly a century prior to its dramaturgical reinvention, the building was a high-class hotel that housed high-ranking military commanders, influential civic leaders, and even President Andrew Jackson for a spell in 1819. When General Ambrose Burnside took the town of Knoxville during the Civil War, the hotel was converted into a hospital, makeshift war room, and oil-wrestling arena for Generals William Sherman and Phil Sheridan. The latter portion of the 19th century showed the building more favor, and during the lavish 1870s another president—Rutherford B. Hayes—paid call, and delivered a speech from the hotel’s balcony. The early 1900s saw the hotel’s biggest renovation to date when it was purchased and upgraded by the Auditorium Company. The newly rechristened Bijou Theatre opened to a sellout crowd, and was a major outlet for vaudeville from 1913 to 1926. Hard times began to pile up soon afterward, and the lapsed theater would have been demolished in 1975 were it not for its eleventh-hour listing on the National Historic Record. Since its most recent renovation in 2006, the stage has hosted pop stars and musical blockbusters.
