The title compound, C14H13BrO3, is an inter­mediate in the preparation of naproxen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Geometric parameters are in the usual ranges. Neglecting the H atoms, the mol­ecule comprises two planar halves, the bromo­naphthyl moiety (r.m.s. deviation = 0.010 Å) and the ethoxy­carbonyl­meth­oxy moiety (r.m.s. deviation = 0.018 Å). The dihedral angle between these is 79.23 (7)°. The crystal packing is stabilized by a weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bond.
