George Street doesn't really get going until later on at night, but there are lots of places to stop for a bite to eat and have a beer during the day. We tried a few different places and it was always good. Lots of live music, great food, and good local beer.

Got to partake in the George Street Fest. What a great crowd. Wonderful music and fun people. The weather was so warm, you would think you were in Ont. This is a must see. Next time we have to go for a few nights out. One night out at this festival just doesn't cut it. So much talent!

George Street is the place to go for nighttime entertainment. If you have visited 6th Street in Austin and Bourbon Street in New Orleans - George Street is very similar but a little more tame. The street is lined with bars with the majority featuring live bands. The bands a quite good and perform both traditional Newfoundland music and current/classic... More

We enjoyed a few days at the George Street Festival. Some great bands and some poor bands, but the experience was fun. It was really hot outside, so the crowds got a bit much after 10 pm. We enjoyed the bands in the bars more than those on the main stage, largely due to the crowds at the mainstage.

Went to the Kitchen Party night, what fun! Standing room only, lots of people enjoying themselves but civilized too. Love the Newfoundland music, Shanneygenock (sp?) was the headliner and they were great.

A thunderstorm restricted our movement to only two bars - o'reillys and green sleeves - but these two bars were enough to give us a flavour of what is on offer along this street. Both bars busy busy with o'reillys pub having great live Irish music and green sleeves bar very good live country and rock - preferred o'reillys because... More

Got screeched in here at Trapper John's! Very lively and fun experience. Caught the final act of the George Street Fest with Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea fame on Aug 5. As the other reviews say, it's a street full of bars with one bar jutting up against the next one. If they were not named, you would not... More

George Street is the Epicenter of Partying in St. John’s, particularly around the time of the George Street Festival. We timed seeing Alan Doyle (in his own band, but of Great Big Sea fame) close out the festival. Local boy does good. There are many, many Irish Pubs along this street and all are good for a pint, but not... More

It's the party street of the town. Loud music. Late night pizza. Dance clubs and lots of people out and about!
