Today it's known as Tavern In The Square. It has morphed a bit over time but it's long been a good spot for entrepreneurs eager to cash in on the street traffic, out of towners, students and those looking for a night out in the city. Easy to find and easy to make a quick getaway from, located right on the corner of Harvard and Brighton in Allston, The Tavern was long ago called Mosko's. Some remember it as The Kells. Others recall the glory days of Molly's.  A web search yielded little information about the history of its location at 161 Brighton Av, Allston. But as Mosko's, it closed its doors for good in 1969 after a long stretch, the absolute limits of which we were unable to locate. Still and all, its a place of interest for all DOB types.
