Regattabar — the Heart of the Charles Hotel
No, it’s not the Head of the Charles rowing regatta. Regattabar is the musical heart of the Charles Hotel, and the jazz soul of Harvard Square.
The Yoko Miwa Trio will be performing at Regattabar in Cambridge, MA, Thursday, April 18, at 7:30pm. Regattabar has been named one of the “Best of Boston” by Boston Magazine thirteen times, and they are also home to a stunning annual jazz festival.
Considered by many to be one of Boston’s premier jazz venues, largely because of their ability to attract big-name musicians from around the world, Regattabar can also be a hot spot to catch up-and-coming jazz acts. Regattabar is on the third floor of the Charles Hotel, transforming what could have been a conference room into a special place for amazing music. Regular customers say that while there isn’t a bad seat in the house, there are good seats and then great seats, and you’ll want to buy tickets with your friends to sit together – a good incentive to get your tickets early!
Regattabar is closer than you might think to Harvard Square, just a few blocks away. If you want to take the T, take Brattle Street to Elliot Street and you’ll find the Charles Hotel on the corner of Elliot and Bennett. Because it’s so close to Harvard Square, you have all kinds of options for dining or a drink before the show. Both of the restaurants in the Charles Hotel, cozy Henrietta’s Table and swanky Rialto, offer discounts to Regattabar ticket holders, and there are also drinks and light fare at the venue.
