The Bottle House Block is a brick rowhouse at 204-214 3rd Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was built in 1826 as a tavern by Deming Jarves, owner of the New England Glass Company, and was identified as the "Bottle House Block" from its earliest days. The building is the third oldest in East Cambridge and one of a few surviving brick buildings in Cambridge from that period. At the time of its construction it stood on the main road from the West Boston Bridge to Old Cambridge (roughly Harvard Square).[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
