Southbound has been a staple in Knoxville nightlife for years as the place “where the Southern Belles go to get down!” Located in the heart of the historic Old City, Southbound is the largest nightclub Knoxville has to offer, with three floors (3rd floor is club 90 Proof), six full-service bars, including one on the outside patio, three large dance floors and live DJs on each floor so guests get a different experience no matter what level they’re on.
Southbound is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and its top two floors are available, and great to rent in advance for private parties at any time during the week! Call (865)414-6050 for rates and more information.
Southbound’s resident DJ on Fridays and Saturdays, Eric B, is also one of the star DJs on the hottest hip-hop and R&B radio station in Knoxville, Hot 104.5. With over 10 years of experience, Eric B uses his unparalleled ability to fuse Hip Hop, R&B, House, Dance, Country and Old School to redefine the boundaries of musical genres. Bottom line, he knows how to make an entire club get off their feet and DANCE.
What really sets Southbound apart from the rest of the dance clubs in Knoxville, is the Old City courtyard and outdoor stage, located behind the venue. Capable of holding thousands of people comfortably, the Old City Courtyard is perfect for holding large concerts and has been the location of several sold out shows in the past. The backbone of the Old City’s nightlife scene and our original Carleo Entertainment Venue, SouthBound offers 5 full service bars and a dozen flat screen TVs.
SouthBound plays host to Old School Fridays & Total Request Dance Party Saturdays from 9PM until 2AM. With everything from 80′s to Country to Top 40 hits, there’s plenty of fun to keep you on the floor until the last call!
