Sapphire is a sophisticated Southern haven in the heart of historic downtown Knoxville, a full-service restaurant featuring upscale comfort food from the region.
Sapphire offers the area’s foremost liquor selection, with over 40 vodkas, a fine selection of Kentucky and Tennessee Whiskey, terrific Scottish single malt Scotch, the most interesting gin options around today, rich and fun rums from all over the Caribbean and South America, subtle and exciting tequila choices, all of the liqueurs you love, from trendy to classic. Sapphire offers a "by the glass" wine menu with over 60 different wines to chose from, as well as a reserve list.
Sapphire's ambience and decor are unparalleled, created by the building itself, which is over 100 years old, and from the fact that Sapphire is built into the shell of an old jewelry store. Lush, dark hardwood surrounds 70-year-old jewelry cases that now hold liquor, wine and artwork from local artists.
Enjoy exciting nightlife in Knoxville, and mingle with who's who. Find it all at Sapphire, located at 428 South Gay Street, next to Downtown Grill and Brewery and a block away from Regal Riveria Cinema and the remarkable state theatre, the Tennessee Theatre.
