The Firefly is a Tennessee Whiskey bar and beer garden located in the heart of downtown Knoxville, just steps from Market Square. The name stems from the famous synchronized fireflies that live in the nearby Smokey Mountains reflected in the patio’s nighttime lighting.  The outdoor oasis, complete with a fire pit, bleacher seating and a covered trellis, makes for a perfect spot to relax in the afternoon on a Sunday, grab drinks after work or pump up before a University of Tennessee game. And accents of home team orange were not forgotten!

The bar features a partnership with George Dickel Distillery and offers the only hand-selected reserve barrel of George Dickel Whiskey in a bar in Tennessee. Crafted cocktails feature the reserve bottle and the rest of the beverage list highlights the best of Tennessee spirits and breweries. Live music and events are frequently hosted on the patio and make for a lively spot any night of the week.

The menu is drawn from its sister restaurant, Marble City Kitchen, located inside of the Hilton Knoxville, and features southern comfort food developed with local products like Flour Head Bakery breads. Late night the bar partners with local food trucks to offer guests a rotating selection of great eats once the kitchen is closed.
