Plan a Party


Beat Hôtel is an American brasserie and bar located in the heart of Harvard Square. Inspired by the hippie and beat movements of the mid-twentieth century, we cater to all walks of life. Our mission is to satisfy the local community as well as vagabonds passing through.

With an always fresh, seasonal, and wholesome menu, enjoyable for carnivores and vegetarians alike, our dishes draw influence and flavors from around the world. Our bar celebrates American spirits and American artisanal wines crafted by small batch winemakers with heart and soul.

To heighten the senses further, we feature daily live music by cutting edge musicians in jazz, blues and world music, bringing eclectic artistry to our stage in Cambridge.

Heard Around the Block

“Beat Hôtel, Harvard Square’s soon-to-be hotspot from the team behind South End’s Beehive, has been open for less than two weeks. But chef Rebecca Newell is already in the swing of things, it seems. The Chopped winner, who moved over from The Beehive…”

- Scott Kearnan, Zagat, 09/21/13

“You know and love the South End’s Beehive, now meet the hippie-inspired Beat Hôtel, its sister restaurant in Harvard Square that recalls the neighborhood of yore, a hangout for restless spirits like Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Edie Sedgwick.”

- Kara Baskin, The Boston Globe, 10/21/13

“Inspired by the “hippie and beat movements” of the ‘60s (and named for a run-down hotel in Paris’ Latin Quarter), Beat Hôtel’s a funky, throwback sister spot to the South End’s popular that’s tucked under the Gap in the former Tannery and boasts eclectic vittles, wine on tap, and live jazz nightly.”

- Jacqueline Dole, Thrillist, 09/23/13
