Plan a Party


Beat Brasserie (aka Beat Hôtel) is an American restaurant and bar located in the heart of Harvard Square. Opened by the group behind the wildly popular The Beehive in Boston's South End, Beat Brasserie offers a fresh, seasonal menu, enjoyable by carnivores and vegetarians alike.  Our bar celebrates American spirits, beer and over 35 American artisanal wines, crafted by small batch winemakers with heart and soul, on an advanced tap system.  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 Brasserie, 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
