Atmosphere was laid back and relaxed. One of the nicer bars/restaurants in Knoxville. They do offer one of the best drinks my wife has ever had. I believe it was a "Downtown Cougar". Good place to relax before switching over to eat at the great Downtown Grill and Brewery next door!

I liked going to the Sapphire. We went for my friend's birthday and she loves it! Great adult atmosphere and they had good drink specials too. There were some creppers there but thats normal for that area of Knoxville. But I enjoyed it overall!

A cocktail is a cocktail is a cocktail. This place is for 20ish locals. Not a good place to wander in for a drink but more of a young crowd hangout.

Title makes it sound like an amateur bar, it's not. But it's also not a grown up cocktail lounge. Food SUCKS! Service is amateur.

Since Sapphire opened it has struggled to find a niche. The space could be great, but somehow still looks like its half finished and a bit thread bare. Lacks any imagination or decor. We had heard there was a new menu and much improved..
Dreadful!
