“Views and music in the heart of Harvard Square”
Review of Regattabar

I love the room. So much class looking out on the Square. Have been to many wonderful performance --jazz and world music, mostly. And even if it turns out that I don't love the band, being there is relaxing and fun,

Really hate the layout and seating at this place. They do get great acts but I skip most shows there because of the seating problem. I have been to 3-4 shows there over the years and have only had a good seat once. See photo. The band is underneath the lights you can see in the ceiling. As another poster mentioned they control the seating and you have no idea where your seat is until you get there and could end up with a terrible view seat. THERE IS NO STAGE to improve sight lines.

Anyway, I went because I really wanted to see the act I went to and it just reinforced my bad opinion of the place.

It is nice, clean, safe, convenient but the seating is terrible.

I have been coming here since the 1980s. It is consistently Boston's best jazz room. For about the price of a movie-you can see the best that jazz has to offer in an intimate 120-ish person room. Sadly, management is booking less jazz here and using it more often as a private function room-so check the website ahead of time. Tickets for the first show often sell out, the second set less so. Hint: drink here-don't eat here. Plan on eating in one of the great restaurants in the hotel instead. Don;t forget to get your parking validated-it is expensive to park in the Hotel.

bring in big name jazz performers in fairly intimate setting. Classy atmosphere. Drinks and light fare offered.
