Cheap drinks every night at one bar or another. I’m not sure how they get away with it but you must take advantage of it if your visiting St.johns. Lot’s of great little pubs to check with some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

I was told it basically shut down in winter. If that was shut down I'd hate to be there for meltdown. Loads of friendly people everywhere. Lots of bars, lots of music, I felt very comfortable.

This was an evening to remember. Even as seniors it was fun and easy to get around. It was a Friday night in July and warm so it was all "good" Some bars offered specials and it would be well advertised outside each pub or restaurant. We found it to be a very relaxing upbeat evening.

For those who like pubs, loud music, drunk people. Not my style : 5 minutes was too long! George street is situated in the Old St-John's and that too is obvious!

This is a party street, it is lined with bars. A lot of the bars are Irish themed. I noticed a lot of live music and drink specials. If you are looking to enjoy a few drinks and some folk music this is a must see street. Also at the end of the street there are two strip clubs if... More

Quite the experience. Wall to wall people while the Wallflowers were playing. Lot's of activities on the street as it was blocked off to traffic. Lots of pubs that served great food and had local entertainment. Gotta love the locals, they sure are a friendly bunch!!

George Street is the place to go in St. John for a fun time. A bevy of bars and a lot of down home Newfie entertainment. The Newfie hospitality is prevalent throughout, the food is decent and the bar prices are reasonable. Jam sessions Sunday afternoon at O'Reilly's are a must goto and are most enjoyable.

One of the few streets around whose name brings a smile to the face of anyone who has been there. It is often said that if you can remember your trip to George St then you weren't trying hard enough! Lots of great pubs, restaurants, food and the best thing of all - amazing Newfoundland hospitality.

But all the bars were welcoming, the patrons friendly, the staff friendly, the prices fair. I had expected far larger crowds but it worked out well as I was able to hop into most of the properties and get a good feel for them all without huge line ups.
