Located in a historic bank building from the turn of the late 1800's, the location is slightly off the beaten track but still with a 10 minute walk of uptown Saint John.
Dress Code: Casual. Come as you are, and theme nights
This is a beautiful new lounge bar in uptown Saint John. Very stylish, great staff and fun music. The back patio gets the sun all afternoon and is protected from the harbour winds. The interior design is spectacular and the drinks are tasty. No food here but lots of great restaurants within a two minute walk. Go to The Canterbury after dinner for a drink and hit the dance floor if the mood should strike. Ladies, dress up a bit. It will be your only opportunity to do it in Saint John.
Dress Code: No ball caps, no team jerseys, no ripped jeans. Just look nice.
Happinez, located underneath LemonGrass Thai Restaurant is such a great spot to sit and relax with a glass, or flight of wine. You can choose to taste a few different wines and then hang out with your friends or, choose from Beers, Liquors or Spirits. There is also the opportunity to order off the LemonGrass menue for Appetizers.
Had a great experience and loved the renovated space. Your surrounded by century old brick, supported by minimalist style bench seating with chocolate brown cushions. The bar itself and bar tenders are beautiful. A perfect spot to hit after a nice dinner.
Dress Code: Casual
For a fun night out, hit Saint John's downtown core. There are a number of places to attend, all of which are a guaranteed good time.
Cougars just did a renovation and it's jam packed with fun stuff to do. Crowded just enough . . . who wants to go to a bar that's empty! The more the merrier! Great bartenders, awesome music. Needs a new name though, there's no cougars in the bar. A perfect mix if younger, university aged partiers and early thirty somethings.
Dress Code: Anything goes but it's fun to dress up in your best party wear.
If you are in town on a friday night the current place to check out would be cougars lounge. This has a variety of people, and is located on the boardwalk (downtown). The bar tends to get quite busy, and would be a cross between a dance bar and a pub.
Dress Code: No dress code, casual is fine
Churchill's Pub is situated on the ground floor below Church Street Steakhouse. The decor is trimmed in a dark wood that gives the place a real comfortable feeling or they just had the lights dim and I was more pissed up than I thought.
Anyway, the night that I was in there, it was just me and a hand full of locals...and I think most of them actually worked there, so, everyone was friendly and talkative. By and large, the mood was very laid back and I wished that I could go back for more pints.
