George Street is a short street with bars on both sides right the way down the street. For lunch, I'd recommend the excellent fish and chips at Kelly's Pub (they also do very inexpensive but very good steak! and a variety of other pub food). Greensleeves is another spot you could try for lunch. For a more varied menu, try Bridie Molloy's, where you'll find local and Irish themed dishes. (Their "sister" restaurant, The Celitc Hearth - part of the same building but accessed via Water Street which runs parallel to George Street - is 24 hours). At night, George Street is busy and loud, especially at the weekend! It is a great spot to hear some excellent local music. If Jazz or Blues is your thing, head to the Fat Cat, where some of the best blues musicians in town hang out. If you are more into traditional Newfoundland music, or Irish music, there is a lot of choice. O'Reilly's has been a fixture on George Street for years and some of the bands that play there include The Irish Descendants and The Masterless Men. It gets busy and sometimes has line-ups depending upon who is playing that night and how many conventions are in town! Bridie Molloy's has bands like Hagdown and The Pints! and is a great place to meet friends; with a large dining area at the back and a bar at the front, you can listen to the music while you eat, drink, or dance. The Rob Roy is a place where a lot of students and young people hang, with drink specials and some great music. A more recent spot, The Brimstone, is building a reputation for great live music and some recent bands have included The Punters, and the Chris Ryan band - great musicians and good fun with the crowd. I'd recommend taking a wander up and down the Street before you decide where to go - the music begins early and goes until around 2:30 a.m. so it's a marathon, not a sprint - and check out two or three places to get the best experience.
