It's one of those must go to spots in St.John's. Lots of pubs, night life etc. In the summer, the street is filled with people and music - fun environment.

Sublime, chef-prepared food at Greensleeves Pub: Gravlak, mussels, cod chowder and more! Then there is the nightly entertainment. Nothing this good in Vancouver! Really! Step across the street for more music at O'Reilly's Irish Pub. And 4 blocks away is the Amazing Jag Hotel. No...More

My 2 sons and I went pub crawling for an afternoon. We visited the following places for beers and some grub food: Yellow bellies, Greensleeves, O'Reilly. A good day and a great place to unwind.

Depends on what you are looking for. There are bars that cater to younger crowds and there are those that cater to older clientele. There are also bars that serve food and those that do not
We will be attending the Festival this summer and hoping you can help with my question. I see that there are tickets for sale for performances. Are these tickets for that performance or is it for access to the street? Not sure whether to order tickets ahead of time as not sure exactly what they are for. Sent an email to their website but no reply. Hope you can clarify for us thanks Lori
