The Bijou Theatre is one of East Tennessee’s oldest and most revered performance venues, opening in 1909, as part of the Lamar House Hotel, one of the oldest buildings in Knoxville. Tabbed by The New York Times as “one of the best sounding rooms in this country,” the U.S. Cellular Stage at the Bijou offers a clear stage view and aural excellence from every seat. The building also houses the acclaimed Bistro Restaurant as well as the Theatre offices. Music, vaudeville, opera, comedy and more have all been performed on the historic stage throughout the years hosting, among others, Joan Baez, The Ramones, Richard Thompson, Bob Weir, St. Vincent, The xx and comedian Louis C.K.
