The Fairlane Hotel is a luxe 81-room boutique hotel bringing back the style and personality of the 1960’s. A true midcentury-style gem where service reigns supreme and timeless design details set the stage for culturally expressive travelers seeking upscale accommodations… with just the right amount of luxury. A vibrant social scene, the buzzing lobby becomes the hub for power lunches and after work drinks, anchored by the first outpost of popular NYC-based Mile End delicatessen, and a lobby bar, along with Union Teller Coffee Counter. Ellington’s Mid Way Bar & Grill, a cultural outpost located on the 4th floor of the hotel, serves casual, all-American classics for lunch and dinner, and features a beautiful wraparound terrace with plush seating and cozy fire pits that beckon both views and vibe. The 4,000-square foot penthouse is a destination in itself, decked to the nines with 1970’s flair and a wraparound terrace that provides the best views of Music City.


A talked-about bar in a town that takes its watering holes seriously, Peter Kern Library serves up menus tucked in antique books and drinks named for your favorite literary characters. Here, the art of the cocktail is celebrated with the flourish of a bygone era. Surrounded by bookshelves, cozy booths and what might be Knoxville’s best-stocked bar, guests savor hand-crafted cocktails with names like Holden Caulfield and Holly Golightly in a setting of style and originality.

Once, this secret spot was known only to the most plugged-in locals and guests but, these days, K-Town’s elite line up in the alley to gain entrance. As a guest, all you have to do is slip through the sliding door off the lobby.|
