“Hippest place to live near Boston”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Amazing!!! Lived there for many years and left only for better school system for my kids. We go back frequently. Great street events in summer, lots of local art, love the movie theater, and so much more.

“LOVE Davis!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Always great food, bars and people watching. It is a fun place to go out with friends or simply with your partner. It is very gentrified

“So much to do.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Always fun, Flat Bread Pizza, You can bowl and have delicious pizza, Red Bones best Memphis ribs in the area. Johnnie D's great food and music. The Burren for original Irish music. All the shops along the way. The people watching is the best. Always someone singing in the area in front of the ice cream store. There is a great festival every year called The Honk festival. Have not seen anything quite like it anywhere else. I could go one and one.

“What Harvard Square used to be more like.”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Davis Sq. has really come alive at night and it has all of the things that used to make Harvard Square a lot of fun. Davis Sq has night clubs, bars, cheap and expensive restaurants and a great movie theatre. Harvard has lost most of the cheap eats, most of the bars, bookstores and night clubs and replaced what it lost with banks.

“Coffee Shops, restaurants, ice cream, fun crowd”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Great spot to eat, drink, and be merry. A sort of mini Harvard Square with a little less pomp and circumstance. JP Licks is always a favorite.
