Gatlinburg provides plenty of opportunities for country music enthusiasts to tap their toes and sing along. That being said, few local hangouts are as vibrant as Jason Aldean’s Kitchen & Rooftop Bar.

This expansive bar is a notorious hangout for Jason Aldean fans, but you don’t have to know all his songs to have a grand time. The food, drinks, and atmosphere also make this a worthwhile destination, not to mention, the amazing rooftop space.

Simply wandering around is a treat, as the down-home decorations are fun to check out. There is plenty of memorabilia, so feel free to take your time and explore.

At some point, you will definitely want to hit up the rooftop patio, which is Gatlinburg’s largest. There is a quick-service dining option here, although traditional sit-down dining is worthwhile if you have the time and the appetite. The real perk of visiting the third floor or Jason Aldean’s Kitchen & Rooftop Bar, however, involves the views: night or day, the scenery is simply spectacular.

Once you’re ready to settle in, get ready to check out the extensive drink menu. This includes several handcrafted and creatively named cocktails, plus draft beer that can be served in souvenir glasses if desired. Souvenir glasses are also available for non-alcoholic beverages, including soda and sparkling water.

The food menu is impressive, featuring many comfort options that call for a big appetite. These dishes are best enjoyed in the second-floor restaurant, where you’ll find plenty of comfy, and often, scenic seating. TVs are in abundant supply, so you can enjoy the big game if desired. Don’t forget to snap a picture by the second-floor tractor.

Youngsters appreciate the tractor and also adore the kid’s menu, which includes favorites such as mac and cheese, cheeseburgers, and cheese pizza. During the day, this location qualifies as kid-friendly, although it’s also a local date night favorite.

If live music is a priority, you’re in luck: it should come as no surprise that a bar named after a country star would provide a performance schedule that is jam-packed with amazing musicians.

Before you leave, be sure to check out the huge gift shop, where you’ll find the cutest clothes in town, along with many great souvenirs.
