George street is a fantastic place to eat in the day time and early evenings A great place to go for drinks, there's something for everyone of all ages. Strongly advise only eating the pizza or street meat (hot dogs) while seriously intoxicated.

If you really want to experience the night life of St. John's George Street is the place. You can find any kind of bar you could want. From traditional Irish style taverns with live music to up scale dance clubs and blues bars. If you really want to get a feel for the city and see some great local bands... More

George St. reminds me of New Orleans French Quarter, except George St. is just one street. I enjoy strolling down in the daytime on a nice summer day, Thursday-Sat nights different story. My partying days are long gone, its not for me. A tourist may enjoy the most bars per square inch on one small street. the RNC have a... More

If you like pubs, this is the place. Unless my recollection is incorrect, I believe this is the most densly populated street with pubs either in North America or the world. At any rate, there are tons of them, with both inside and outside seating. As mentioned, this street is a party waiting to happen.

There is something on George Street for everyone of all ages (greater than age 19). Impossible to see all the bars in less than a week. Street performers, street vendors, and restaurants. Dance clubs, karaoke, dive bars and irish pubs. Legitimately something for everyone. If you aren't having a good time in one place, easy, get up and go to... More

Short historic street with many pubs and eateries and music abounding. The hub of the St. John's night life. Lots of local top notch performers.

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.
