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.

I arrived in St. John's for the mu$ic fe$tival, great bands, plenty of drinks flowing, revelers all over the place. I preferred my afternoon visit to traditional pubs.

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
