This is the place to be in St John's if you're after a few drinks and a good night out downtown. It's one long street with loads of pubs, bars and clubs and plenty of variety to cater to different tastes. We were here for New Years Eve so it was nice to hop to different places and enjoy the...

nowadays George street festival seems to have only drunk young people and teens with skimpy clothes, I used to enjoy the festival but I must say the last two turned me off... I don't really recommend going there anymore...

If you're young don't go out til 11 or so, that's when the party starts. The Irish bars are busy all the time and have some great local talent. Be warned, if you're female, don't be caught alone!

I dare you not to tap your feet and start dancing. The local musicians are incredible, even if you're not familiar with NL music. So talented. And the clubs are crowded, but what I found incredible was the spread in ages - there were people there in their 20's and in their 70's. Loved it. Great atmosphere. I had the... More

Ok, so I travelled to St-John's on some business and had a couple of nights to go out and enjoy some nightlife. If there is one place in the world where you will make friends, George Street is probably one of the best! Newfoundlanders are quite well known for their friendliness but it something you need to experience to really... More
