About
The Five & Dime is a laid-back bar that focuses on music and craft beer. It's a very relaxed atmosphere enclosed with 19th Century brick and stone interior, tasteful lighting design and hand-made furnishings. The bar has over 600 records on-hand to choose from, 2 record players and 8 taps of local micro-brew. There is the occasional live performance that takes place, as well as a frequent lineup of local DJs at the decks. A great way to enjoy a local pint and good music!

We stumbled upon this bar while walking around Saint John. The owner and staff were super friendly. We made this a regular stop while in town. Highly recommend checking it out if you like listening to vinyl or live jazz.

My husband and I went there after dinner, we enjoyed such a fun night. The dj was playing awesome vinyl tunes and everyone was dancing and singing. Great vibe

The Five & Dime offers a place to listen to your favorite record while enjoying some great local craft beer (or bottled domestic if your like me). The atmosphere is perfect for a group of friends or to just chill alone and enjoy some records. They continue to support both local and traveling artists to their unique space. I've seen jazz, blues, and folk artists perform on the intimate stage and I've yet to be disappointed. Saint John is lucky to have this gem. For the love of music, community, and drink;)

The Five and Dime has done an excellent job creating a space whose atmosphere can change to suit the clientele. It can be a chill spot to listen to some classic soul on vinyl. It can be a stage for intimate concerts. It can also be a hot spot to get your groove on. I've been there multiple times and they've always managed to hit the crowd in just the right spot. Combine this with a great selection of local brews and you've got a #1 hit that tops everyone's record chart. If you haven't been there yet, check it out. My guess is you will not be disappointed.

We escaped the crowded boardwalk and ended our night here. It has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. We chatted with others at the bar and stayed until closing. Would love
to return next time I'm in Saint John.
