On Monday, March, 17th, 2014, Irish eyes will be smiling at Beat Hôtel’s first annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration. In partnership with Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA), the newly opened brasserie and bar will bring a touch of traditional Irish fare to Harvard Square with Irish-inspired libations and food specials from Executive Chef Rebecca Newell, as well as authentic entertainment from Boston-based musicians, Matt & Shannon Heaton.

Cambridge, MA, United States., March 3, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -

Matt & Shannon Heaton bring their shared musical experience and love for Boston's Irish music scene to the Beat’s stage.
