📍2389 Ingleside Ave, Macon, GA
The Society Garden, my favorite bohemian beer garden, happens to be located a few blocks from my home. Neighbors walk with kids and dogs to play trivia, day drink outdoors, and groove to great music. Of course, you can always drive or book an Uber. Odd art festivals, food trucks, drag shows, tribute bands and national touring acts love to book gigs at this shady spot.
I mean that in the best possible way. Giant sail shades, wood-carved sculptures, massive murals, and friendly bartenders make everyone feel welcome. When the sun goes down, the string lights come on, casting a warm glow across the beer garden. If the weather warrants it, the firepits and propane heaters add a little more warmth and ambiance. The neighborhood bar closes early, so plan your visit accordingly.
