If you want to do the bar scene, George Street shouldn't be missed. Even if you aren't looking to party and are downtown, check it out. Safe and friendly.

Had a great night at O'reilly's and another pub, escapes my mind right now (nothing to do with the libations...) Great band, actually got me dancing, which I don't do often. Good times with friends

No matter which day you go during the week, you will find a busy and packed bar! Great music and great people! If you want to get screeched in while in Newfoundland, this would be the place to do it (approx. $40).

After dinner we walked up George Street to find the final Tragically Hip concert being broadcast on the street. Wonderful to experience this momentous event with a crowd of adoring fans. Thank you St John's.

My 3 sons and I spent an afternoon on George Street more or less pub crawling. We dropped into a few pubs and bars to sample a few brews and the live entertainment. We were not disappointed for we had a great time.

We heard Newfoundlanders were the friendliest people and they did not disappoint! George Street has so many amazing clubs and bars with the warmest hospitality we have experienced! The most down-to-earth people we have ever met. When the weather is good here, it is the most amazing place where you feel welcomed and content. Everyone should experience this amazing place!

George Street in St.John's is a spectacle to beheld anytime but if you want to see something special, go during George Street festival. There is nothing quite like it.

Great for walking and stopping in at the many pubs. Live music, good food and drinks. Blues, rock, jazz, and of course great down east music. Newfoundland at its best.
