Harvard Square is packed with everything a hard-studying Harvard student or hard-working Cantabrigian may need for their day-to-day—and plenty of things they don’t. The most fun thing about shopping in such a cultured and diverse neighborhood is skipping the recognizable, everyday chains to discover the shops with an out-of-the-ordinary inventory.
UpStairs on the Square, Harvard Square. Go ahead, fall down the rabbit hole. There's the more casual but still colorful The Monday Club Bar downstairs, and then the totally fairy tale Soirée Dining Room, featuring two working fireplaces and more pink and gold than you can shake a scepter at.
