The oldest bar on George Street, Christian’s Bar (est. 1979) couples its premium drafts, high-quality spirits, and expertly mixed cocktails with Screech-Ins, a daily/nightly ritual of fish kissing. In order to become honorary Newfoundlanders, visitors, tourists, and lovesick aquarium owners are asked to down a shot of local Screech rum before puckering up to a cod.
Opening at 3pm daily, regular patrons are treated to free popcorn and watch a variety of sporting events on a 70″ Sharp Aquos LCD HDTV.
The upstairs portion is available to rent for private functions (6-10pm) or play Golden Tee Golf while sipping libations such as fine whiskeys, ryes, tequilas, and other spirits, including indulgent ounces of luxury Louis XIII cognac. Imbibers can also gulp down premium wine and Dom Perignon or transform into a caffeinated tornado after chugging a specialty coffee.
