Note: The Westin Boston Waterfront, along with multiple other Marriott and Westin properties across the country, is currently encountering a strike that began on 3 October. The Westin has assured us that this strike will be minimally impactful to the event and guest experience. OSA is working closely with the Westin to monitor the strike and ensure our Laser Congress attendees have a positive experience. We apologize in advance for any disruptions you may experience, and ask that you notify OSA Staff onsite of any challenges you may encounter so that we may address it with hotel management.

MJ O’Connor’s Boston Pub on the Waterfront will offer guests a traditional Irish influence. Enjoy the option of eating in the restaurant’s hallmark dining room or dining al fresco on the restaurant’s outdoor patio. Chef Hennemuth’s menu will still offer traditional Irish fare, with a classic seafood twist. Traditional menu selections such as Beer Battered Fish and Chips will be coupled with new additions like Pan Crisped Salmon.

City Bar Boston Harbor's signature cocktail selection of hand-crafted martinis, champagne libations and Infusions Diabolique, a unique line of infused spirits from City Bar, offers a perfect spot for either a casual drink after work or for a romantic toast with that someone special. Executive Chef Ben Hennemuth will complement the wide array of cocktails with an eclectic bar menu featuring select menu items such as Duck Confit Spring Rolls, Hanger Steak Tacos, and House-made Potato Crisps.

Birch Bar offers both locals and hotel guests the opportunity to enjoy a refreshing cocktail mixed by veteran Birch bartenders or sample a variety of creative and indulgent plates.
