Jobs at The Hourly Oyster House

The Hourly Oyster House
15 Dunster Street Cambridge, MA 02138

The Hourly Oyster House is a vibrant and welcoming neighborhood outpost in the heart of Harvard Square, where guests can enjoy thoughtfully sourced and playfully prepared seafood (oysters, especially) from New England and beyond, accompanied by a carefully curated selection of signature cocktails, beer and wine.

Located on Dunster Street (which was called Water Street way back in the day due to its proximity to the Charles River), The Hourly is named in honor of the horse-drawn wagons that departed each day – on the hour – for Boston. This route was established in 1826 and was one of the first high-frequency transit routes in America – a monumental advancement in transportation, but the seed for future connection, collaboration and creation between Harvard Square, Boston and ultimately, the rest of the world.

The building at 15 Dunster Street’s history is equally storied. The exact footprint in which The Hourly stands is rumored to be the location where the first Freeman’s Oath was printed in 1639 and is also the home of the original Second Cambridge Savings Bank building, as well as Harvard Square’s ice cream icon of 27 years, Herrell’s. The Hourly channels the square’s colorful past, blending historic charm with a contemporary experience.
