Hello! I've helped manage the Emporium for 18+ years. I'm local to Knoxville and adore being downtown! I'm lucky to work in such a beautiful space every day!

Such a wonderful and unique venue! Perfect for the couple that appreciates art & culture!
The Emporium is a lovely location for weddings, receptions, cocktail hours, and other events. You have several options of where to put everything--the open downstairs area with a set of stairs perfect for taking photos, a small ground level walking area, and a more intimate gallery upstairs. Also, the architecture lends itself to different decoration styles.
Such a unique venue and so easy to work with.
