I think Fairmount is far more happening than NoLibs. For the Piazza though, the building is subpar, management company sucks, and you can easily find a nicer place 1 block away that has the same access is all I am saying.
But I still vote for Fairmount, I have a party bar, dive bar, a handful of amazing restaurants and two world class beer stores in terms of selection, all within less than 5 blocks walk. All NoLibs really has is the Piazza, and while I do enjoy PYT's burgers, I think the quality of nightlife is far better in Fairmount.
