“Great little stroll”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This area was fun to poke around in. We found some very cute shops as well as some fantastic places for lunch. We even went back the for dessert. We really tried to get back there at night when the lights were on the se how magical this area could be at night with no kids.

“Cool place because of Architecture”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Brightleaf Square has maybe 20 plus shops including several restaurants. But what the highlight of the place is the exterior brick architecture with chimneys and the interior has brick walls and original floors as it was part of Liggett Myers tobacco complex at one time. Mainly upscale shops. Worth a visit to look around and admire the architecture. Has paid parking across the street but free on street parking is nearby.

“For an Exciting Weekend Night Try It!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Center of nightlife in Durham. Plenty of good restaurants to choose from. Music in the square weekend evenings in the summer. An enjoyable place to go when you are in Durham.
