We had the opportunity to attend a performance featuring one of our friends. The staff of the theatre is super friendly. I'd recommend balcony seats to enjoy the grandeur of the theatre. The theatre opens an hour before and there's an old-fashioned pub just outside the entrance. The acoustics were great and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I'd love to... More

I really enjoyed my concert at the Bijou. I saw Chris Stapleton here... of course he was amazing, along with his wife and band. Anyway, nearly as enjoyable was the architecture of the theater itself. It is well preserved. Compared to the Tennessee Theater, nearby (which is also great), the decorations are simpler, although there is still a feeling of... More

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
