Coming Soon: Quill at the Woodward

Quill at The Woodward

In just a few short days, The Woodward Hotel will be opening its doors and welcoming its first guests! But that’s not all. The doors of Quill at the Woodward will also be opening with craft cocktails aplenty, rooftop views and more on September 3rd!

The Woodward Hotel

The Woodward Hotel is a new literary-inspired development opening in Downtown Macon at the beginning of September. The Woodward is an independent, locally-owned-and-operated hotel with a passion for sharing the beauty of Macon. Each room is unique and features local art, vintage books, sustainable flowers, as well as designer furniture.

The hotel is named after the proprietor’s grandfather, Dr. Benjamin Woodward Griffith, Jr., a celebrated English professor, folklorist, WWII veteran, and writer. You can find nods to him all throughout the hotel, honoring him with Southern texts found in every room, literature-inspired cocktails, and even the bar’s name, Quill.

The Moonhanger Group and New Town Macon partnered together to purchase this property on the corner of Second Street and Mulberry Street Lane to renovate it into the new boutique hotel and cocktail bar.

Previously, the property was home to many local shops and offices. In 1865, there was a “millinery and fancy goods” shop on the first floor, while Dr. Darwin had his dental practice on the second story. Before the building went out of commission in the 1950s, this location was also a jewelry store, the business office of the Central of Georgia Railway, a clothing store, and so much more.

Quill at The Woodward

Quill at the Woodward is a craft cocktail bar tucked behind The Woodward Hotel on Mulberry Street Lane. Here you can find cocktails inspired by books and history, whether it’s an author’s favorite drink or one of their creative signature drinks. They also offer a small curated selection of wine, bottled beer, coffee, and tea.

Stop by and enjoy a drink either in its cozy interior or on the breezy rooftop. Inside, you’ll find the perfect place for a quiet conversation with its eccentric design, complete with a marble bar, wood ceiling, leather, tweed, and velvet seating. The rooftop patio is the best place to sip on your carefully-crafted cocktail and take in the sunshine. With shade sails, lounge furniture, a fire table, and lush planters, the rooftop is waiting for you!

From drinks to books and games to friendly conversations with the bartender, you can do it all at the Quill.


 Quill at The Woodward is located at 350 Second St. in Downtown Macon, right behind The Woodward Hotel. This convenient location puts you just steps away from all the best entertainment and dining in Macon.
