Another one of our favorite rooftop bar’s is Bernadette’s Crystal Garden. Bernadette’s is unlike any other rooftop bar in Knoxville. It was constructed with 45,000 pounds of crystals! It is made up of four floors, two which are outdoor patios all themed with different crystals. These floors include the Amethyst Lounge, the Quartz Room, Rooftop Gemstone Garden and finally the Citrine Mezzanine. They are open every night of the week and almost every night of the week they offer specials on cocktails, wine and more so you can always find a fun deal here. Bernadettes is such a unique and rooftop that everyone in Knoxville should visit.
