There are so many things to love about a trip to Junction 35, including our amazing food, incredible cocktails and spirits, and lively atmosphere! We are the perfect place to bring your family or friends to enjoy a night of fun and fellowship. The good news is that we aren’t hard to find as we are located just off the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge. That’s not the only benefit of our spot though! Here are 4 things guests love about the location of our Pigeon Forge distillery:
1. Easy to Find
What good is a great restaurant and distillery if no one knows where it is? In the world of cell phones and GPS, you can find just about anything these days, but you won’t even need that when tracking down Junction 35! We are located on a backroad right off the Parkway known as Teaster Lane! To find us, turn on Teaster Lane from the Parkway and just follow the road until you see a massive shopping center which we like to call the Mountain Mile. From there, you will see our restaurant so just stop by anytime to say hello!
2. Surrounded by Shops
If you are looking for a way to walk off your meal, be sure to check out all the amazing shops located right next door to our Pigeon Forge distillery. For those looking for the perfect Smoky Mountain souvenir, be sure to check out the Mountain Mile General Store. There you will find all sorts of memorabilia, including apparel, home decor, stuffed animals, toys, and so much more! There are also some fun thrill rides right outside, which include the Monster Drop which is a freefall drop tower that sits over 200 feet in the air!
3. Off the Main Road
While we aren’t but just a few minutes off the main Parkway, this is actually a huge convenience. Traffic turning in and out on the Parkway can be a challenge, especially during the busy times of the year in the Smokies. With our spot off the main road, you can easily access our parking lot without having to fight the traffic. Teaster Lane is a two-lane road with plenty of places to turn in wherever you are trying to go. Another good thing about the Mountain Mile is that we have plenty of parking near our restaurant so customers can easily access everything that we have to offer!
4. Distillery and Restaurant Combined
You will find that a visit to Junction 35 is incredibly unique. We are the only place in Pigeon Forge where you can enjoy a traditional restaurant experience while also getting to sample the tasting experience of a distillery. Once you find your favorite spirit at our sampling counter, you can pair it with a delicious entree or appetizer at our restaurant to enjoy with your group. We can also make incredible cocktails using our spirits at the bar! When you take a trip to Junction 35, you can sit back and relax with good food, drinks, and company.
