B3, which stands for Back Bay Beats, brings a worldly take on southern cuisine, live music from Berklee College of Music and curated art installations to Mass Ave.

The southern inspired menu, designed to heighten the senses, takes guests on a journey with flavor-forward dishes that are made for sharing. Guests are encouraged to order as much or as little as they are in the mood for, whether it be a light bite or a full meal. The offerings celebrate the rich food culture and seasonality of New England and honor a nose-to-tail cooking philosophy where no part of the animal is wasted.

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, acoustically-designed dining room. Backstage, an intimate private dining room clad in lush velvet and warm leather (evoking the inside of musical instrument cases), is well-suited for everything from business meetings or to casual dinners with friends and family.

Seven nights a week and during Sunday brunch, current Berklee students, recent alumni, faculty and visiting artists take to the Central Stage, a slightly raised platform in the middle of the restaurant created to be fluid, intimate and adaptable, with rolling steel and glass acoustical panels. The performances of typically two to three musicians offer traditional Southern folk, gospel, R&B, funk, world, jazz and more.
