This Library Bar In Tennessee Is Every Book Nerd’s Paradise
When you think of someplace lovely and cozy, where you can get away from the world and fall in love with a story, you most likely don’t think of a bar. In Knoxville, however, the elegant relaxation of a library is paired with craft cocktails and incredible service to deliver an experience unlike any before. The Peter Kern Library is a joy to visit and a beautiful space you’re bound to fall in love with immediately. Have you been?
The Peter Kern Library is a cozy and elegant cocktail bar tucked away in the famed Oliver Hotel. You'll find everything from the low-level lighting to the comfy leather chairs of your favorite fantasy library right in the heart of the city.
You'll find yourself surrounded by books laid out beautifully on dark bookshelves, with a fireplace crackling away merrily against the back wall. If you're looking for the drink menu? Why, you're simply handed an antique book, menu slipped inside.
The Peter Kern Library is really is a true treat for literary mavens. Order the Holly Golightly if you're feeling punchy, perhaps the Holden Caulfield if you're entertaining a moment of the morose.
Styled like an opulent speakeasy from the long-gone south, Peter Kern entertains both hotel guests and folks that make their way through the secret alleyway door. Not sure how to get there? You may want to flag down a local. This bar is truly one of the best kept secrets in Knoxville.
The bartending staff is both knowledgable and attentive, with a penchant for creating fun and creative cocktails.
