KNOXVILLE — Peyton Manning and Graduate Hotels will open a restaurant in Knoxville as part of a hotel renovation and acquisition across from the University of Tennessee.

Saloon 16 will be located in what is right now the Hilton Garden Inn on Cumberland Avenue, which will be rebranded. The restaurant will be a western-inspired, high-end "watering hole." The name is inspired by the former NFL quarterback's nickname, "The Sheriff," and his University of Tennessee football jersey number.

"The vintage saloon will boast a refined, yet old-school, experience including a jukebox, dart board, live piano and outdoor dining," according to a press release. More about Manning’s plans from the Knoxville News Sentinel.
