Unconventional Venues in Athens

Looking for somewhere a bit different to hold your next event? Athens has just what you're looking for, from gardens to museums to breweries, mansions, and more.

Athens, known for its creative energy, is the perfect destination to try out something new. Why not meet among the beautiful trees that surround the State Botanical Garden of Georgia's Callaway Building and then head to its tropical conservatory or Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum for lunch or reception? The Georgia Museum of Art is another stunning space that can be used in many ways.

Attendees will get a real sense of Athens' strong culture and heritage in venues like

  • The Taylor-Grady House at Landmark Commons, a 19th century Greek Revival mansion on the National Register of Historic Places
  • The Morton Theatre, an early 20th century vaudeville theatre built, owned, and operated by an African American, where Cab Callaway, Duke Ellington, and Bessie Smith performed
  • The Cotton Press, featuring exposed brick walls, industrial steel beam work, and even splashes of vintage graffiti 
  • Georgian Hall, an authentic 1920s Art Deco masterpiece that brings all the Gatsby vibes
