If you’re looking for a fun night out on your next trip to the Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg is home to some of the best bars with the best views in the south. After a fun day hiking, exploring the strip, or riding roller coasters at Dollywood, relax with a drink and take in the sights with your friends and family. Here are the top 4 bars in Gatlinburg for an awesome night out:

1. Loft Lounge at Ober Gatlinburg

From craft and domestic beers, a wide range of wines, and top-shelf spirits, there is something for everyone at the Loft Lounge. Visit during Ober’s annual Oktoberfest Celebration or just stop in if you need an Aprés Ski refreshment. If you get hungry, the Loft Lounge offers a food menu for patrons. Enjoy the Ski Haus Sampler while sipping your beverage and enjoying the views.

2. Gatlinburg SkyCenter

Located on the Skydeck at the top of Crockett Mountain in the Gatlinburg Skylift Park, sits the Gatlinburg SkyCenter. Once you arrive at the SkyCenter via chairlift, head upstairs to the bar where you can sip your drink while enjoying the best views in town. Every seat is the best seat in the house at the SkyCenter. This bar offers unique craft beers, in addition to, a snack bar with pizza, salads, wraps, and ice cream. These unbeatable views make the SkyCenter one of the best bars in Gatlinburg for your night out!

3. Bar At the Top of the World

You’ll arrive at Bar At the Top of the World via Anakeesta’s Chondola ride, where you’ll also find attractions like the Dueling Zipline and the Rail Runner Mountain Coaster. Adjacent from the Smokehouse restaurant, stop by the bar after dinner and take in the Smoky Mountains with your choice of liquor, specialty cocktails, wine, and beer. We wouldn’t recommend enjoying a drink before riding the Rail Runner, the first single rail mountain coaster in the country.

4. Shamrock Pub

The luck of the Irish has come to Gatlinburg with Shamrock Pub. Enjoy a pint with your friends while listening to awesome live music. Shamrock’s offers live entertainment every day starting at 4 PM. If you want your turn at the mic, stop by Wednesdays for Open Mic Night or any day after 8 PM for some karaoke. Head to their rooftop seating area to enjoy the views with a glass of your favorite beer or top shelf whiskey. Located in the heart of downtown, you’ll be in the center of the action when you visit Shamrock’s!
