The Southern Bell is excited to offer a fresh new event venue to east Tennessee. It is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Lenoir City just 2 miles off the I-75 Interstate. Built in 1920, the venue features original art deco exteriors with colored prism glass windows, interior twelve foot ceilings covered in beautifully restored pressed tin, and gleaming hardwood floors. A seventeen foot long antique store counter provides the perfect set up for serving food and drinks. The Southern Bell derives its name from the upper floor of the building where the Southern Bell Telephone exchange was located for several decades.

We welcome you to experience the quaintness of a small town with the spaciousness of a century old venue to create your dream event. The recent renovations provide the necessary conveniences and spaces to serve today’s wedding couples.

The entrance to the Southern Bell is located directly across the street from the charming historic 1890 Lenoir City Company Office building which now serves as the town’s museum. Plenty of nearby parking is available.
