    There is nothing to compare it to. I have been to Newfoundland probably over 10 years ago and got screeched with co-workers while on an iceberg tour. This time around I travelled my my adult children and wife as this was on my bucket list to do with my family.

    This was an amazing experience as if you were part of a show. No comparison to my first experience and along my travels in the province that week as we met other tourists, we compared notes on where they have gotten screeched and they could not believe the video I showed them.

    I was impressed that with probably over 30 to 40 customers that evening all names were remembered. We got to keep the shot glass as a memento along with certificate. We were even provided with a holder for certificate and shot glass. Gladly accommodate a non alcoholic drink for screech in as my wife and son cannot drink alcohol.

    Thank you for such an am amazing time and memories.

    It's a little pub with big heart. You owe it to yourself to check it out! Quaint little pub and Linda the proprietor with her awesome stories and warm hugs for everyone.

    Was walking by and got caught by the music coming from Erin's. There were about 8 local musicians playing Irish traditional songs. Really fantastic. Stayed for over an hour - very unexpected.
    Check it out - never know what you will hear!

    We went in a couple of times and really enjoyed having a beer while listening to local musicians. It just felt like the real thing. We only wished it was busier....it was a shame that more people were not listening to the music.

    I like this place very much. Good live music, some DJ's downstairs. Place for young and old. Nice crowd. Ideal for some weekend fun.

    Mike (the karaoke emcee) is one of the friendliest folks you'll ever meet in a bar. If you're ever in the area, swing on by Saturday night and sing some karaoke with your buds. You won't regret it!

    Chrissy the owner, and her girls, Rita, Rose and Gilda made our nights (and days lol) out a whole lot of fun. The music was great. Open mic night, karaoke night. They sang some newfoundland songs for us and we danced the night away.. The "regulars" are all nice and fun people as well, even Riley the dog. I was the first screech-in and it was honour. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay and my screech-in was unforgettable. Thanks to all of you lovely ladies for everything. Love Michelle and Trudy

    I usually end up in this bar every time I visit St John's. While there is plenty of music places on George St the atmosphere is good and they have great local talent

    Went here for a bachelor party. $2 drinks, you can't beat it. Awesome atmosphere, even though it was a quiet night. Would gladly return.

    We wanted to hear some live music so we wandered around for a bit and stumbled upon this place. While waiting for the band, there was a guy up doing a one-man show. It was not enjoyable. Maybe I just didn't understand his music. The main band, Jigger and the Sea Dogs I believe had a decent sound but was way too loud for the tiny venue and all the sound got muddied up. We didn't stick around long. I would like to hear that band in an outside venue or at least a much larger one.

    This bar is located underneath the Bella Vista. They regularly hold poker games and other events! The bartenders are great and super friendly! Great service. This bar seems to have a lot of regulars which is awesome!
