Oyster Bar
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 and oysters from New England and beyond, as well as a carefully crafted selection of signature cocktails, beer and wine. With a focus on seafood, The Hourly serves up New England classics in a dynamic and airy space. Instead of traditional bread service, meals begin with fresh, homemade salt and vinegar chips and guests are sent home with taffy from Harvard Square neighbor, Cabot’s Candy.
