Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is coming soon to Pigeon Forge, TN! The new Pigeon Forge Margaritaville is planned to open June 1, 2014 according to a comment they made on their facebook page. It will be located at The Island in Pigeon Forge, which is a large new entertainment complex featuring the 200ft Great Smoky Mountain Wheel as the centerpiece. It’s surrounded by shops, restaurants, and all sorts of fun things to do. Margaritaville in Pigeon Forge is sure to be a popular new restaurant as soon as it opens!
Margaritaville had originally planned to open their location in Gatlinburg due to Pigeon Forge not allowing liquor by the drink in previous years. In 2013, Pigeon Forge voters passed legislation allowing liquor by the drink, which has opened the door to numerous new restaurants flocking to Pigeon Forge…including Margaritaville. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville pulled their Gatlinburg proposal and decided to open their newest restaurant in Pigeon Forge at The Island. The Pigeon Forge Margaritaville will feature casual dining, a bar, live entertainment, and a retail store.
The Island in Pigeon Forge was originally being built as “Belle Island” until that project came to a halt. New developers came in and revitalized the project which will bring restaurants, attractions, shopping, entertainment, and more in a prime location in Pigeon Forge. The Island is opening in phases with the first phase now open as of June 21, 2013.
