Oyster Social & Beer Tasting


Black Hog Brewing Company

Saturday, August 26th


$48 - RSVP Required through Eventbrite


UpperWest, named after the Upper West Side of Manhattan, has the look and feel of a casual wine bar, but has much more to offer the community. We are a creative space for food and drink, located in the basement of a Veteran's Club in North Cambridge, where food entrepreneurs can introduce their food to the local community, and patrons can enjoy varied and educational food and drink experiences.

We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, and typically offer a simple menu of about 10 items, including a Cheese Tasting Board, Charcuterie Board, and one Hand Made Pasta dish. Pasta is made in house daily, and tends to sell out later in the evening. Our menu changes daily based on ingredients available and the whim of Chef and Owner Kim Courtney.

In addition to our standard menu, we invite Guest Chefs in to offer our neighbors specials of the night, or to take over the menu and offer their own complete dining experience. We also offer classes, tastings, and other events. You are welcome to inquire with us about what menu might be offered on a particular night, or check out our Calendar for those events that are open to the public.

UpperWest is also available for private events.


Tuesday - Thursday: 6pm - 10:30pm

Friday - Saturday: 6pm - midnight

(Kitchen closes at 10pm every night)
