about us

71 South is nestled within the heart of Knoxville's Urban Wilderness. Our home, the Baker Creek Preserve, boasts a nearly century-old church that has been transformed into a vibrant dining destination. Whether you're craving brunch, lunch, or dinner, our doors are open 7 days a week

Our full-service bar features local brews and handcrafted draft cocktails. Step inside and you'll find a casual atmosphere perfect for any occasion - whether it's a romantic night out, a post-trail refuel, or simply a stop at the bar for a drink and a good time.


At 71 South, we are dedicated to the upkeep and protection of Knoxville's Urban Wilderness. 100% of proceeds from our receipt round-up program, merchandise sales, and events go directly to those responsible for overseeing this: AMBC, Legacy Parks, and Ijams Nature Center.
