    Green Sleeves

    Green Sleeves is another great pub with good food. The people will be out of their teens and sometimes a professional crowd.

    On the weekends there is generally always great live music and a good place to hang out with friends.

    Enjoy your visit!!!

    George Street Stage

    Throughout the summer there will often be festivals, so check for local listings. The George Street Festival is arguable the best one and there is lots of live music outdoors on the stage!

    The street and pubs are alive at this time!!

    O Reillys: Mecca for the live music fan!

    by larx Written Jun 19, 2008

    Easily St Johns most well known and popular music bar, O Reillys lies at the centre of George Street and attracts a big crowd regularly.The live music seems to be never ending and if youre here for a few nights, youre sure to hear many of Newfoundlands best musicians, old or young.
    I highly recommend this bar, although if you dont like folk or acoustic music or celtic music in general be warned in advance.
    I heard Larry foley here first night , excellent!

    Dress Code: Casual is ok.

    by larx Written Jun 19, 2008

    One of a string of Irish bars located on the famous George street..and well worth trying out the menu. Ive been here a few times and I would recommend it for sure.
    A decent range of tap beers also and a good venue for live music , mostly Irish or folk.

    Dress Code: Casual

    Erin's Pub: Calm before the storm!

    by larx Written Jun 19, 2008

    Nice little pub run by Ralph, an Irish Musician based in NFLD for many years.
    There is live folk music regularly in this pub, with a nice folky ambiance and friendly atmosphere. There was live music every night I was here in May 2008.
    Well worth a visit before attacking George Street.

    Dress Code: Irish pub, so casual.

    O'Reillys Irish Pub: O'Reillys Irish Pub

    by jamiesno Updated Apr 20, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once O'Reillys Irish Pub now it's The Dock.

    O'Reilly's has to be one of my personal favorite spots on George Street. It's now moved up the road on George Street where Benders on George used to be.

    The old O'Reilly's is now called the Dock.

    It looks like its the same set up as the old O'Reilly's. In the meantime I havn't gone in there in the night time yet for a pint so I am not sure much else about the place yet. If anyone got some stuff to share please let me know.

    In the winter of 2008 I visited there again on a Tuesday night for Open Mic Night and it was really busy, lots of people and as expected an all round good time.

    O'Reilly's Pub: O'Reilly's

    by jamiesno Updated Aug 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once Benders Night Club now O'Reilly's

    Benders on George is generally always a fun place to visit on a Friday or Saturday night.

    Well not anymore. Benders on George is now O'Reilly's Pub.

    O'Reillys has to be one of my personal favorite spots on George Street. If you like Irish live music and a great crowd this is probably the best spot in Newfoundland and Labrador.

    There is generally always live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Tuesdays they have open mic which is a laugh. There are a lot of close ties with Ireland and this makes this a number 1 spot!

    Be sure to rate my tips and leave your comments, I love them all!!!!

    The Last Drop pub, St John's
    1 more image

    The Last Drop is a pub which is located along Water Street. This pub has a very friendly atmosphere and is worth visiting at night. Mr Harj (VT member hsm) and I have a good time drinking and chatting here during my visit in November 2005.

    George Street, St John's

    The many nightclubs, pubs and restaurants along George Street is well know. This street is conveniently located at the central area of the city and it comes to life at night where other parts of the city become very quiet. Do check this place out but be careful.

    Quidi Vidi Inne of Olde is a pub smack dab in the middle of quaint, historic Quidi Village on the outskirts of St. John's. No they do not serve food. No they do not tolerate smoking. Yes they do like to have fun.

    Quidi Vidi Inne of Olde is built on the site of an old French artillary position. There was a battle fought on the site during the 7 Year War and several old cannonballs have ben found around their property.Ask Mrs. Hennebury and she would be glad to show them to you!

    Check it out!!

    Dress Code: Come as you please

    The Cotton Club

    The Cotton Club is probably the most distinct looking building on George Street, it used to be known as the Corner Stone Night Club.

    In any event it is now the Cotton Club and one of 3 adult clubs in the area. The other two include Bubbles and Sirens.

    Pearl Jam Concert - September 2005

    If you enjoy concerts and live music St. John's will usually have some shows rotating through the city. I was always a fan of Pearl Jam and got to see them in September 2005 in St. John's. They played two nights and I was lucky to get tickets to the Saturday night show.

    Depending on when your going to be in the city check out their web site and you might be lucky that something will be on.

    This little pub is on Water street, only a few blocks from George Street. I've found that these bars have more of the local clientel. This place was full of locals. I was told here that the French were lousy house guests.

    GEORGE STREET.: GEORGE STREET.

    by hsm Updated Aug 5, 2005

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This street is about 200 yards long, at the most.
    And in that distance, there must be at least 20 pubs and bars. You can listen to any kind of music. Some of the best known pubs are: Benders on George, Bridie Molloy's Pub & Eatery, GreenSleeves Pub & Lounge/Club Etomik/Robyn's Nest/Ale & Lager, Jungle Jim's, Sundance Saloon, Trapper John's and Fat Cat - where they play the 'blues'.
    Most of the pubs do not close until 3 am on Fridays.

    Dress Code: Anything goes.
