When you think of a historic district, you probably don’t think of an up and coming neighbourhood full of cool bars, breweries, markets, art galleries, pubs, and shops. But that’s exactly what Trinity Royal district is in Saint John, New Brunswick’s Uptown. The beautiful stone and brick architecture constructed in the late 1800’s is reason enough to stroll the neighbourhood, but here are five must-do stops if you’re visiting the borough.

Picaroons is an incredible microbrewery and tap that can’t be missed. The General Store space is awesome and includes a brewery, a growler fill station, taproom, Picaroons retail space, and plenty of stools and table space to sit down and have a pint. Although food isn’t served, the delicious Locavore Cafe next door makes a great sandwich, and visitors to the General Store are welcome to indulge.

Eighty Three is a special spot. Once you pay cover, this bar allows you to play classic arcade games from the 80’s and 90’s absolutely free and as much as you want. It’s tough to deny the idea of a beer and classics such as Street Fighter, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders. To top it all off, the bar streams music videos from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, with a sprinkling of today’s top 40. Good times are sure to ensue.

Vinyl bars are sweet, and Five and Dime is definitely best-in-class. With a visible and large vinyl collection, this bar is all about the music. Regular DJ’s spin records, but many nights and events encourage visitors to bring their own vinyl. It’s this open atmosphere that’s created a great space to share records, trade records, and talk music — with a good beer as well. To top it all off, the bar serves pizza and appetizers from Italian by Night, a restaurant upstairs.

Another beautiful sunny, if chilly day, in Saint John. This time I wanted to show you the Trinity Galleries building. It's located in the Trinity Royal Preservation area of Uptown Saint John and has been showcasing Canadian and Maritime art for over two decades out of this gorgeous location. Stop by next time you're in town.⠀ ———————–⠀ #SaintJohn #visitSaintJohn #exploreNB #saintawesome #livelifeuptown
Gallery hopping is a great way to spend a day. Trinity Royal has quite a few galleries you can jump around to, but the Trinity Galleries might be the can’t-miss of the bunch. The incredible restored two story gallery space features an array of Canadian and Maritime artists. Definitely worth checking out.

We love the Saint John City Market and have spoken about it at length. This Canadian National Historic Site houses spots such as North Market Seafood, who boasts they have the best smoked salmon in the country, and Slocum and Ferris, the business responsible for the infamous DLT: Dulse (seaweed), lettuce, and tomato. If you’re checking out Trinity Royal, you’ve got to go.
