      Review! I am a lonely guy looking for a place to have fun, only, I am a little, or quite older than most guys that go to bars. I live in Knoxville, TN, and unfortunately, I hate the gay scene here. I have actually been rolled in one of three bars here which has had a great impact on my life. (sorry, I just realized this is a 'submit a review'), but what the heck, I am very alone and wish to find the special person. Is this a good review. Does it really matter. I have to get away due to many events taken place in my life in the pass 2 years. I'm not a young person, but don't feel like an old person. I just want a friend to tell me they love me for what I am.

      This bar offers 2 in 1. Downstairs offers "Below Zero Lounge" where the staff are friendly, a Choice of 108 options of Vodka with 3 kept at "Below 0°" with plenty of others optio.s if Vodka isn't your poison. They offer a full selection on Video Jukebox, Great Ambiance, and Act themed evenings (Wednesday through Sunday). It kept extremely clean and reasonable in price for drinks. It has awards for 5 consecutive years of #1 Bar and Matthew, their Bartender has had a few awards for his bartending skills. No Cover which is great and then the 2nd bar is located upstairs with a Drag Cabaret called, the "Cabaret." Which is open Thursday through Saturday, some special events Sundays. It has an intimate setting with cast of mix revue of Drag Queens which are have an a ray of styles. The Show Director, Penny Tration, is bigger than life and extremely funny, she has been casted on the Upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag : Season 5. Mystique Summers, from RPDR Season 2 is on cast with some of the amazingly talented Leah Halsten.... With tables served by fellow Cocktail Drag Queens that allow you enjoy the show. The ambiance is very Cabaret-Gypsy. It was an extremely enjoyable night in One place with 2 Bars that have separate feels.

      I hate Below zero. I went there once and I will never go back. It was way too loud, and there isn't much of a dance floor. The drinks were way too expensive, it was ridiculous. You'd think you were in California. We ended up at Roxy's on vine street, and had a great time!

      Nice place, but not as good as it used to be
      I used to see professional guys here after work, but not so much lately. Where are they going now? Nothing wrong with the bar itself though. It is swanky.

      music to loud and sucked, drinks sucked, couple up against the wall over doing it, was with a group of friends and was told to keep it down(just trying to hear each other - music was to loud) but some places it's to low so go figure. Some drunken guy was watching the door and kept coming over to us; I'm thinking he must have had a crush on someone in the group.

      No place better to get a drink
      Atmosphere, space, drinks are all fantastic. Even the bathroom is always very clean. Great location just a block to the "Gateway Quarter" with unique shopping. Check out gay owned Metronation. Best time to go to BZ if you are looking for a lot of people, is around ten to eleven most nights but especially on Thurs, Fri, and Sat. Patrons are mostly well dressed, educated, professional and well spoken men from 20's to 50's. Don't show up in shorts, leather chaps or sandles with socks! Conversation with patrons is easy, it's not a "hook up bar" so striking up a conversation will not be taken as an attempt to go back to your hotel, even if it is. Just take it easy, it's laid back fun. Most people have to work in the morning, or will be heading off to another spot, as this is usually the first stop of the evening. Tip the bartenders well the pours are good, the beer is cold and they will remember you and what you are drinking.

      Cozy piano atmosphere
      I wouldn't say Below Zero is something you'd find in New York, but it was a cozy, cute place to go for a nice drink and good company. We went on a piano-bar themed night, and had a nice, comfortable drink on the plush couches in the raised area near the back. The piano area was a little crowded with CCM Musical Theatre students monopolizing the pianist's time, but some of them were cute, and some of them were even talented singers!

      Nice atmosphere
      So, we are in town for a game with the Reds; walk around with our GPS, and find Below Zero; it is very late already; not many people there; But, everyone that is - is very friedly, and comfortable with "out-siders"; we went back the next nite!
