The Relix Story

Rich Character & original architecture

Relix was originally constructed in 1915 as a CI Vest Dry Goods and is most notably remembered for its use as a White Stores grocery in the historic Happy Holler district. After the establishment of the trolley line in 1905, Happy Holler served as the heart of business in North Knoxville and its name emerged from its reputation of being a place where alcohol could be purchased easily in the back alleys during prohibition. Notorious for its revelry, Happy Holler is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Owner, Daniel Schuh, is proud to say the history of this unique space remains in the 16-foot, rough-sawn wood ceiling, exposed brick walls, and polished concrete floors & bar tops. Though it has been transformed into a beautiful event venue space, it still holds much of its original character.

The Relix has a unique history and charm that has been preserved throughout the years while simultaneously transforming into a beautiful luxury event space. The venue still holds onto its roots, while showcasing elegant details, luxurious décor and a wide range of amenities that make it both a stunning setting for weddings and sophisticated venue for any type of event.

Relix is located 1 mile north of the Old City in the historic Happy Holler, the heart of Downtown North Knoxville. Running adjacent to I-275 and just minutes from downtown, your guests will find this location convenient & easy to access.
