It is a nice, safe area with tons of pubs/bars that are side by side. Great deals though the week, Rob Roy has a $5 cover charge on Tuesday nights. After that drinks are only $1.75 all night!!

George street is incredible. We were in on a Friday evening (early) and 3 or 4 young men came in from a long days work - they ordered beer - took off their hats and as a group sang "ode to Newfoundland". Totally spontaneous. It was incredible. Made the whole trip for both my husband and I. Loved it!!!

Music! Entertainment at every restaurant....we went during the day then again at night! Kind of like a very small French Quarter in New Orleans....but of course this was Newfoundland. Fun! Everyone should go to George St just for the fun! Food was good too!

I passed by as they were doing a tour last week. We decides to stopped and listened to a story. They give a lot of information about the history and stories behind the bars on George Street. Unfortunately I couldn't do a tour that day. But I did talk to a couple of the guides at the kiosk and they... More

It was off and on drizzling and chilly, but Fridays and Saturdays rock here. There was live music pouring out of the clubs. It was loud and energizing. I do believe we were at times the oldest on the street, but it didn't matter. Everyone was delighted that we had come from Boston to visit their fair city.

Some of the best bars I have ever been too. There is live music every night too. Went went to O'Rielly's on Thursday night for $4 Yellowbelly pints. Friday is fish and chips special! Then we got screeched in a Trapper Johns :)

What happens in St-John's on George Street, stays on George Street. Plenty of good pub food and music. Our advice is to "Soi Sage!"

Well we did a private pub crawl for 300 people. Food - fish and chips of course- was barely edible. The pub crawl was 4 bars. The timing was too long in each place and the activities were very boring - irish dance, songs, screeching in. Not what I was expecting.

What lively area of St. John's. Along the few blocks of this street you can hear some if the best music this province has to offer. Fun night clubs, pubs and people. Order a pint and sing along. You may even be inclined to dance too!

If you like a wide mix of music and great traditional Celtic music to dance and drink the night away, this place is for you. You can feel the energy several blocks away. O'Reilly's, Trapper John's, and many other pubs are ready to welcome you and your friends.
