Top Water Holes While Visiting Cabins In Helen Georgia

Your vacation is a time to relax, unwind, and remove yourself from the problems of the “real world”. Though your visit to beautiful Northern Georgia will allow you to get away from it all, there may be a few things from back home that you do not want to leave behind. Where can you go in the Helen area to enjoy a drink with a buddy or that special someone? For a nightcap, or a casual evening of relaxing with a cold beer, here are the top five watering holes that are near the cabins in Helen Georgia.

Bigg Daddy’s American Tavern & Music Club

Big Daddy’s American Tavern and Music Club has coined itself “the only place to be in Helen”. With one of the largest and highest quality beer menus in all of Georgia, Bigg Daddy’s is a great place to kick back and unwind with a cold one as you enjoy live musical entertainment. If you’re more of a wine person, this watering hole offers a wide vineyard selection from France, Australia, South Africa, South America, and the gold old US of A. This tavern also boasts top-notch, fresh food – guaranteed.

Located “under the bridge, by the river” in downtown Alpine Helen, this local favorite functions both as a restaurant and a full-service pub. Offering domestic and imported beers, house wines, cocktails, and Troll Tavern specialties like the “Hooch Hurricane” or the “River Rum Runner”, you are sure to find a drink that fits your tastes.

While there, you can also enjoy authentic German fare such as bratwurst and Wiener Schnitzel. The tavern also serves good old-fashioned American burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

Nacoochee Village Tavern and Pizzeria

Yet another great choice for a casual night out in Helen is the Nacoochee Village Tavern and Pizzeria. What could possibly be more all-American than an evening of pizza and beer? Though smaller than the beer menu at Bigg Daddy’s, the Village Tavern’s beer and wine list boasts a top-quality selection. With both local and national brews, you will have your choice of a variety of cool, delicious domestic beers.

Paul’s Steakhouse and Lounge

The oldest restaurant in town is only steps from the cabins in Helen, Georgia. For a delicious beer, a glass of wine, or a specialty cocktail, Paul’s Steakhouse and Lounge is the place to kick back and have a good time.
