Contributors Share Their Favorite Knoxville Date Nights

“We love going to the Ijams Quarry for paddle boarding followed by a meal at SoKno Taco.” – Ashley C.

“We are also big fans of getting takeout & then going somewhere with a view. Foothills Parkway is a favorite just because it’s super close to us.” – Jordan M.

“We did the axe throwing at the new place in Lenoir City and had a great time! We also loved the couples cooking class we took at The Cutting Edge Classroom!” – Beth W.

“Our most recent favorite date night was spent at Tomo grabbing some delicious hibachi and sushi, and then my husband picked out a fun Target challenge game, which we did part of at Target and then part of at a KARM thrift store because we love thrifting. We also love Aroma Indian Kitchen for delicious Indian food!” – Caitland O.

“We booked an amazing date night package at Wake Foot Sanctuary in Knoxville!” – Dominique D.

“We love eating at Foothills Milling Co, Northshore Brassiere, Season’s, and ending our night at Water into Wine. We also love eating at Sticky Rice Cafe and then browsing through Trader Joe’s.” – Natalie R.

“We like to go to the top of the Sunsphere then do a lap of Market Square and Gay Street. I think we’ve eaten at every restaurant at least once but we always end the night at Cruze Farm.” – Laura O.

“We have a list of coffee shops, quick food cafes, and dessert places and well randomly select one, order takeout, and go sit in our tailgate of SUV and listen to music at a pretty view. We also love Shaker & Spoon cocktail subscription boxes for at home date nights, along with a grazing box from Picnic & Thyme or Amazing Graze TN.” – Ashley B.

“We love antique shopping and dinner somewhere not toddler friendly.” – Kailey R.
