“If you're into the nightlife!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I think that there are 75 pubs on St. George St. And all with live music. You're bound to find one that you love. Local beer is great & the music even better.

“The place to go.... no”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

All books suggested that you had to eat in this area, and there was lots of music and fun to be had... well not for us. We ate at a terrible restaurant, and found the area lacking. Probably because nothing seems to get going until July there.

“Wasn't sure what to expect”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

You often hear about the bar scene on George Street but it wasn't quite what I expected, although I don't know what I expected. The street has 2 "Gentlemen's" Clubs and mostly bars and pubs, and none of them look overly fancy from the street. I walked through mid-week in the daytime so can’t really judge. I bet it is a very lively and busy place at night.

“Always a time”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

It's hard To write a review on just George street with speaking of specific bars and whatnot. I like to go to George street with my friends every now and then. There is a bar for just about every different kind of person! There are sport bars, dance bars, bars that have live music and shows, bars where you can just relax and enjoy having a drink with friends, bars where you can order food, bars where you can be screeched in even! Also there are bars that have free cover which is always a bonus. Definitely worth coming and seeing!

“Lot's of action”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Lots going on here! We visited a few of the bars. Goes to all hours. A bit more of a younger person's street.
