Blackhorse officials said they sold their operation to Kennedy Concepts, who will be remodeling and opening a new concept there.

“We have a lot of great memories in downtown Knoxville made with great staff and customers,” officials said, naming the special moments after UT beat Alabama and the Pride parade prior to COVID-19.

“We have to admit we won’t miss KPD doing stings on Georgia weekend, KUB turning the Promenade Deck over to Premier Parking or the almost insurmountable homeless problem,” officials said.
