Nasty, smoky... Rude employees. BATHROOM was disgusting! I will never go back. I was with a wedding group of 12 we had 1 drink which took 30minutes and left.

When you find yourself in Knoxville, TN, there's a great place to eat, drink, and relax with friends; Especially when the patio is open. This place, is called the Urban Bar & Corner Cafe.

This is a great place to chill and catch up. Lots of space, lots of tables, and the music is good but not too loud. Our server was very nice. The inside isn't fancy or even very nice looking, and it was so so so smoky. My eyes were burning and the room was hazy from the smoke. The outside... More

The Urban Bar and Corner Café resides in the carcass of what use to be (in my opinion) one of Knoxville’s best bars…the BW3’s. I had many great memories from then. Cold beer, blue chip nachos, beef on weck, super hot chicken wings and good friendships. Sorry…I got lost in the past, but I have to in order to think... More

Lacks atmosphere. No live music ever, which seems strange for a Old City bar. The food is bad to decent at best.

Pool, darts, other games. Outside area for sitting. Not a club kind of bar. Nice atmosphere for chatting with friends, having a drink and relaxing.

Cool vibe, decent beer prices and cheap pool. They also have one of those jukebox's linked up to the web, so there's more than just the usual musical fare on offer.
