Contemporary American
Sapphire Fine Food & Fancy Drinks is located in the heart of downtown Knoxville, TN. Opened April 2005.

Sapphire's focus is on Craft Cocktails, utilizing both the trendiest and obscure products, in combination with house-made infusions and tinctures.

Unbeatable happy hour specials from 4-6 Monday through Friday. Unparalleled ambience and decor are 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.

Enjoy an exciting nightlife in Knoxville and mingle with who's who. Find it all at Sapphire.

Located at 428 S. Gay St. a block away from Regal Riveria Cinemas and Tennessee Theatre.
