The Listening Room started in 2006 with a simple idea: There’s nothing like hearing a great song performed live. Not as background music, not as something you shout to hear yourself over, but as the main attraction. With Music City’s best-sounding venue as the foundation, founder Chris Blair set out to pair it with a food and drink menu centered around the freshest local ingredients.

After fifteen successful years in Nashville, founder Chris Blair decided to open his second location in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Pigeon Forge, TN. He set out to build the best-sounding original music venue in the Smokies, while featuring locally focused food and drink with the quality to match the music.
