Preservation Pub

Hard to accommodate more than 4 people due to small booths and the servers seem to have a don't care aditude about serving you most of the time!
Edit: I've been there a couple times since this review and the service has improved a lot. I think the girl that served us originally must of had a bad night.
Great place for live music and good times. The open-air rooftop bar lets you look over the heart of downtown, Market Square. I love stopping by after Sunday brunch for mimosas or bloody marys while sitting in the sun, hanging out with my friends. Pizza is awesome! Really cheap happy hour specials! If you're from Knoxville, the Pub is probably one of your favorite spots in downtown and if you're from out of town, it should definitely be on your list of places to visit.
Three floors, every floor a different experience. rooftop, check. Pigs that fly (if you search for it you'll find it), check. Crystals that take an engine lift just to move... check.. if you want to see a tree that belongs to Peter pan, bartenders that are the best in the business, and an all inclusive feel that says you're welcome here... well you've found your place. A must visit if you are making knoxville a stop on your next travels.
The pub is good for a quick drink. This is a smoker establishment, however. I'm posting a screenshot of the latest menu, which you can scan with your phone and enjoy outside if weather permits.
Fun spot. Bottom floor smells like a bowling alley though w all the smokers. 2nd 3rd and 4th floors (I think there were 4 the roof) were pretty co. Good music good vibes good bartenders
