We usually don't bother going to George Street too much unless some event is going on or we have friends along that we're getting screeched in. It seems a lot of the reviews are being awfully hard on it though, expecting it to be something it's not. George Street itself is basically just bars and clubs, plain and simple. If... More

This is a place with many bars and pubs, most on one street in North America. It's a great place to visit if from away or a regular weekend place to visit if local. Lots of great places to dance and drink with friends.

St. John's has amazing nightlife every night of the week. The quaint pubs, live music and great dance clubs make for a night out a blast for visitors and locals.

The bars were hopping and the streets were all filled with a young crowd! It was a Saturday night, the places were all filled!

It is the night life of St. Johns. Variety of pubs with all kinds of music. Not so busy in the early evening but gets very lively around 11 pm. Most pubs have live music.

When someone suggested going to O'Reilley's pub on the famous George Street, I never knew it would be so much fun! It's the best pub St John's, if not the world! Saw the Irish Descendants here - absolutely brilliant performance. Patrick Moran on fiddle was brilliant and the lead singer has a beautiful voice. Such a great atmosphere. Ordered some... More

We've had the privilege to travel to Dublin and experience Temple Bar, Burbon Street in New Orleans and Freemont Street in Las Vegas. George Street has the potential to rival all these but it seems to miss the mark. Overpriced drinks, outrageous cover charges at every bar and refusing to serve nothing but sponsor endorsed beer and liquor at Mardi... More
