Pigeon Forge’s nightlife scene is not as “dry” as it once was. Pigeon
Forge resides in Sevier County and it is no longer a dry county and hasn't been
for some time. Gatlinburg and Sevierville have liquor by the drink and you may
purchase alcohol in bottles in Gatlinburg only. A good place for
nightlife in Pigeon Forge is the Smoky
Mountain Brewery. Home to more than 8 fantastic microbrews on
site and their food is not the typical bar fare you would find at such an establishment
in other tourist locations. Try their Brewery Ale Steak with their
homebrewed Velas Helas. Smoky Mountain Brewery also has live entertainment each

Grill (great cheese grits and beer), and Calhouns (FANTASTIC prime

and a little less then Nashville. The closest comparison would be to
Branson, Missouri. Do your research regarding shows as some are MUCH
better than others. Sevierville hosts the only movie theater. It
has 6 screens, very clean and the employees are courteous, friendly and
