What Sets Spirits Tavern Apart?
We are passionate about our food and where it comes from. That’s why weuse the best possible ingredients, including humanely raised, antibiotic-free, and hormone-free meats.

Quality is our number one priority, but we source as many of our ingredients locally as possible, such as our Springer Mountain Farms Chicken and Hickory Nut Gap Grass-Fed Beef.

All of our dressings, specialty sauces, breading, and specialty drinks syrups are made in-house!


This little Irish pub just a block off the historic Dahlonega Square strives to be all that a true local Irish pub should be.

Shenanigans offers traditional Irish dishes, pub fare, seafood, vegetarian,and kids’ options—from the black Angus burger to the grilled salmon with wild mushrooms, and the star attraction — Guinness tempura-battered cod with homemade slaw and tartar sauce. Leave room for dessert because everything is made from scratch!
