I attended a concert at the Bijou. It is a really nice venue with a great vibe. The balcony, where I sat, had a great view of the stage and the sound was really nice. I would definitely go back next time I'm in Knoxville.

Quaint theater - restored recently. Not as ornate and elegant as i expected, but still a local gem! Modern bathrooms - comfortable seating.

We went to see Chris and Morgane Stapleton perform in June, and it seemed like a perfect venue. The theater space is relatively small. We were only about five rows from the stage, but I think any place in the theater would allow a good audience experience. There is a bar area not far from the entry to the theater... More

In the middle of thriving downtown Knoxville, you will find the beautiful historic Bijou Theater with as much charm as it has history. One thing I enjoy about attending a concert here is how intimate the venue feels. I am unaware of its seating capacity but the audience (regardless of where you're seats are) feels very part of the artist.... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Black Jacket Symphony concert at the Bijou Theater recently. I love the size of the Bijou. Not a bad seat in the house. Very intimate. Only concern is the limited restroom facilities. We already have our tickets for the new Black Jacket Symphony show in October. Can't wait to return to the Bijou.... More

What a great piece of history. I have been going to the Bijou since I was a kid. It was even closed for a long time before they reopened it! It is very small but that just adds to the greatness! You feel like you are apart of the performance! There is a parking lot right next to the theater.... More

The Bijou Theater is about half the size of the Tennessee Theater, but just as nice of a venue. The sound is great. We saw really enjoy seeing the WDVX Bluegrass shows at the Bijou.

This theater is in a great area - safe and parking is near. I love the vintage feel of this theater; and the seats closer to the front are better even though it is a smaller venue.
