The Regattabar at the Charles Hotel

On the third floor of the Charles Hotel resides the Regattabar, a leading jazz club of New England. Performers, from local to international, bring their individually unique music to the Regattabar. On any night, you might see a traditional Brazilian folk band or an original Delta bluesman with an impressive history and repertore. Chic and intimate with a view of Harvard Square, you experience the music in a personal way, one that truly allows each member of the audience to have their own experience with the music.

Influenced by the nearby Harvard University, Harvard Square has adopted some of the school's key attributes: culture, intellect, and a never-ending hunger to explore. In the hub of activity, Harvard Square will never fail to provide an adventurous day.
