About The Society Garden

Known as Macon’s “Secret Beer Garden,” The Society Garden offers the best of both worlds in historic Ingleside Village. It’s a family-friendly outdoor beer garden with an on-site Italian restaurant, Liliana’s Italian Street Food, by day. But when night falls, it transforms into an extra-special event venue. 

Not only will visitors be treated to live music every weekend, but there are also pop-up yoga studios, art workshops, ceramic workshops and more. The casual, eclectic space features plenty of room to lounge and play. 

In fact, there is a children’s play area featuring a vintage metal slide. There’s ping-pong, cornhole and giant carved trolls. The beer garden offers more than 100 craft beers, along with rotating specialty drinks.

And don’t forget to explore the chic indoor cocktail lounge, featuring more than 100 bourbon and scotch varietals and handcrafted cocktails. But what really sets The Society Garden in Macon apart is the action-packed event schedule.
