    My favorite street in all of Canada. The first time I visited here I thought I had died and gone to the Purgatory of Pubs. I was mistaken, it was actually Heaven! Lively, welcoming and just a little edgy, George Street brings everything you love about a traditional Irish Pub and magnifies it 1000x with an unparalleled folksy live music and an underground arts scene. If you're familiar with New Orleans' Bourbon Street or Key West's Duval Street, this is the chilly, North Atlantic version - sharing it's sister party district's wealth of colonial history doused in fine rum - or "Screech" as they call it here!

    Actually I was underwhelmed by George Street. Expected a nice street but in reality it's quite dirty and didn't seem to have anything exceptional in terms of bars & restaurants.

    Lots of businesses on a very small street. Wonderful friendly people and lots of music. Such a wonderful experience - experience it first hand.

    core of the nightlife in St John's, you will find nice bars and other places to do your "screech-in", the kind of "Newfoundlander baptism"

Description

With more bars and pubs per square foot of any street in North America, George Street is St. John's frosty challenge to the likes of New Orleans and Cancun. Open later than most bar districts throughout Canada, the pedestrian-only street plays host to a thriving live music scene and is a popular year-round nightlife destination.
