Cross over and walk down to the corner to find The Grant Arms. Cross over to continue down Jamaica St. The Crystal Palace is at the next corner and the opposite corner has MacSorley’s. Cross over and turn into Howard St to see The Imperial on the right. Return to Jamaica St and turn left and just at the corner is The Mint & Lime.
