PILOT LIGHT is located in a small section of downtown called the 'Old City'. If you are lost in knoxville, ask for the Old City and someone will set you right. Once in the Old City, look for us on the southeast corner of Central and Jackson Ave. Parking in the Old City is difficult at best, and we have no designated parking area. If you see a legal street side spot, grab it immediately.

loading in.
load in is through the front door.
a few metered parking spaces are available directly in front of PILOT LIGHT, and if you are lucky enough to find one open you should take it immediately. in the more likely event that they are all full, park your van on the street out of the way of traffic and turn on your hazard lights. this will do for loading in, then you will have to move to a legal parking spot elsewhere.
