Late night fun!

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

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.

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

This is like nothing you'll ever see again. An old cobblestone street populated by old Irish pubs that offer various types of music, sure to keep you entertained.

Colourful buildings with lots of bars that would probably be very attractive to young party / bar goers. Not being in that group we did not partake of the wares but enjoyed touring the area.

Really fun closed off street in downtown NFL. We enjoyed a variety of pubs with live entertainment. Pretty average for a tourist location. A bit pricy

While I'm not a young party-type person, I do really enjoy having a couple of pints and listening to music. So during my two days in St. John's I dropped into five local watering holes, had a beverage and listened to live music. A pleasure.
