B3 was created to showcase musical talents from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music while offering a relaxing dining experience reminiscent of bygone days. Designed to be a fluid space in the heart of the Back Bay where food is honest and refined, B3 is a neighborhood destination for lunch, dinner, pre-theatre dinner, late night drinks, or weekend brunch. Food and music lovers alike can enjoy complimentary performances from tomorrow’s stars seven days a week.
The menu features ingredient-driven and approachable American dishes, each with a Southern foundation and occasional global influences. A celebration of New England’s rich food culture, the offerings showcase produce and seafood sourced from local farmers and fishermen. Comforting down-home desserts, traditional recipes using seasonal ingredients, complement the kitchen’s savory efforts. The bar program highlights local craft beers and ciders, non-traditional wine varietal blends, and a refined spirits selection. The cocktail list is partially inspired by the classics and seasonal flavors, often made using Southern liquors.
A rotating roster of Berklee students, recent alumni, and faculty perform at B3 every day of the week. The stage is located in the center of the intimate restaurant, providing an inviting and engaging experience. Whatever their genre (folk, gospel, R&B, funk, world, jazz, and more), artists commit to a mini residency lasting three to five days.
The 3,850 square foot space weaves together a series of acoustically heightened spaces. The Alley, an urban collage of wrought iron, streetlights, brick and wood, offers guests the perfect perch at which to sip seasonal cocktails, a refreshing craft beer or a glass of wine. In The Main House guests can enjoy their meal in a beautiful dining room that doubles as a concert venue. Backstage, an intimate private dining room clad in lush velvet and warm leather (evoking the inside of a battered guitar case), is well-suited for everything from business meetings or to casual dinners with friends and family.
B3 can accommodate a variety of functions from small intimate groups to large celebrations, business gatherings, and social parties in each of its spaces – all executed with the requisite Southern charm.
