Wide variety of bars that can please any crowd. If you are visiting Newfoundland make sure to find out ahead of time where is screeching people in that night, especially in the off season because you might miss it. Everything is expensive. Make sure you get cash out beforehand to avoid $2.95 ATM withdrawal fees. Cover ranges from $5-10 depending... More

If you want to party, George St. is where to do it, and the Courtyard is within stumblin' distance. The assortment of bars, and restaurants is the best on the island and possibly the best in eastern Canada all within a two or three block distance.

Regardless of age you can find a place you'll enjoy to have a few drinks on george st. A good mix of local/traditional bars and more modern establishments. Love the feeling at night of bar after bar after bar on the one street. Locals are always pleasent to visitors!

I know this street is loved by the Newfies because it's really all they have if you want to go for a pint! Having to pay $5 to go into an empty bar is just ridiculous, maybe if they didn't charge going in a few people might actually go in for a drink! But saying that some bars have a... More

Visited St. John's for a business trip, during our stay we were part of a rally in the alley pub crawl. We started off with supper and drinks at o'reillys, got screeched in at Dusk, and spent the rest of the evening hopping from bar to bar. Although we were not far from our hotel I was grateful for the... More

We're not the youngest so we started our tour early around 5 or 6pm. YellowBelly, then a small bar which was just up the hill, screeched in at Trapper Johns, food and live music at 2 more places, ended it at Christians. After seeing 2 different bars screech people in, I would say go to Christian's. You have to prebook... More

George Street is still the same rocking, nightlife that I remember growing up. Trapper John's Scheech in was a bit of a let down, but the bars were all banging all night. I recommend the Martini Bar. :-)

If you're looking for a party, look no further. Next to Bourbon Street in New Orleans, George Street, St. John's is where's it's at.
