Knoxville Igloos


Cold weather doesn’t mean the end of patio season at some Knoxville restaurants and breweries. Downtown patrons can now enjoy a cozy igloo complete with heaters. The igloo trend began in large cities partly due to the pandemic, allowing people to eat at a restaurant and stay socially distant at the same time.

Restaurants love the extra business when patios and rooftops would normally be closed for the winter months. Knoxville Moms has put together this list of area restaurants and breweries where you can have your own igloo experience!
