Private Event Space

UpperWest Wine Bar is located in the lower level of a Veteran's Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts (yes, there's a story there, just ask, or read the articles below). Owners Kim Courtney and Xavier Dietrich want you to feel like you are joining them in their 1970s style basement for a fun and relaxed evening of food, drinks, good music, and great company.

We are a casual neighborhood spot, offering creative and rotating cheese and charcuterie boards, small plates, and pasta hand made daily by Kim. She works alone in the kitchen, offering a regularly changing simple menu, and provides a personal dining experience for our friends and neighbors.

You will find us in the back entrance of the green house located at 1 Cedar Street, just off Mass. Ave., next to the bike path, and a short walk from Davis Square.
