The History

The Regas Building is an initiative of the Knoxville Leadership Foundation (KLF), designed to serve as a gathering place for the community where nonprofits can work together and learn from each other while enjoying this 125-year-old historic Knoxville landmark. 

The building was formerly Regas Restaurant, a fine dining destination locally-owned and operated by the Regas family for nine decades. It was originally the Hotel Watagua in the early 1900s. KLF purchased the building in 2014 and began an extensive, complete rehabilitation to fulfill their vision of a nonprofit hub.
