St John's Rocks!! It has been a port city for about 500 years, with all the
requisite attractions and distractions that goes with it. St John's is said to have more drinking places per
square kilometer than any other city in North America The waterfront remains the social centre,
home of lively bars that feature the pick of Newfoundland folk music - the best single reason for visiting.
St. John's ethnic composition of English and Irish ancestry is reflected in its nightlife with the predominance of pubs and places for live music. George Street in the heart of downtown St. John's is the place to find old world pubs. Along the length of George Street you'll find some 20 pubs and bars featuring Irish, country, dance, rock and roll and traditional music with the party going until 3 am on Friday nights. No matter what you are in the mood for, you are sure to find some entertainment that strikes your fancy!
Each summer at the end of July, the bars of George Street host a week-long party with a street festival featuring lots of good folk music. The best of the island's dozen folk festivals, the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival, is held in Bannerman Park in St John's on the first weekend in August. If you're dining in, or celebrating at home, pick up a bottle of wine - or something else - at one of St. John's many liquor and wine stores .
