In addition to its accessible menu, Beat Hôtel’s beverage list celebrates American spirits and American artisanal wines crafted by small batch winemakers with heart and soul. The state-of-the-art tap wine system features 24 true wines by the glass, mostly either certified biodynamic, certified organic or sustainable culture wines, all available in 2.5 oz, 5oz, or 12oz pours, in addition to a large and carefully curated wine list available by the bottle. Beat’s expert bar staff also serves craft-cocktails and 6 beers on tap.
We started with some cocktails and passed h'ordeuvres, my favorite was the American Breed made with Makers Mark, Elderflower, and Apple Cider. It was the perfect seasonal fall cocktail!
Next we sat down, and shared a few apps including lamb nachos, crispy veggies, and a shellfish tower. Everything was delicious, but my favorites were the smoked tuna and salmon tartares on the shellfish tower. Everyone at our table agreed, we would come back just for this dish!
We ordered one of each of the desserts to share, including a chocolate peanut butter cake, cheese cake, and bread pudding. I planned to try just one bite of each, but couldn't help stealing a few extras of the cheesecake!
The Beat Hôtel is a great addition to Harvard Square, and with it's eclectic, bohemian feel it will fit into the neighborhood perfectly!
