For 20 years, we have been providing the first and truly unique and luxurious service known as Oystertainment. We began oystertaining in Europe, with offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy. Our European customers loved our personal, fun, and fascinating service, so we decided to expand our Oystertainment® service to the USA as well.
Our founder, Matijn, invented the concept of the roving oystershucker. He loved oysters, and he loved people, and he wanted to bring them together. He designed special equipment that meant that a professional oystershucker could move through a party and open oysters as they go. He wanted to bring oysters straight to people, so that he and his oystershuckers could share their enthusiasm and the joy of oysters! This way, they could have a real interaction with the people they gave oysters to, and make a connection and delight them. Once he had the perfect equipment, he gathered the best and most passionate people he knew and assembled a team of highly professional oystershuckers. With that, Red Oyster was born, and our team have been Oystertaining ever since.
Oystertainment involves our team (made up of highly trained oystershuckers), dressed up to the nines in their oyster shucking uniform (complete with a steel mesh glove and scrupulously clean white leather uniform) personally opening oysters on the spot for you and your guests. Watching a professional oystershucker to open an oyster is an amazing experience, as it takes both strength and elegance to do it with the skill and aesthetic appeal of our team. Our roving Oystertainers love to interact with your guests, and will move through your event with charm, skill, and delicious oysters. We’ll explain the process of shucking, the difference between different types of oysters, and why we prefer species caught within certain waters of the United States. Each Oystershucker is passionate about oysters. Within an instant your guests will be hooked, too, and will have had an Oystertainment experience they will never forget.
Oystertainment is perfect for so many different occasions, including marriages, private parties, graduation balls, bar mitzvah, corporate events, and extravagant Valentine’s Day treats. Add the taste of our fabulous oysters to the luxury of having a private oystershucker to open one for you with a flick of their shining silver oyster knife and you will see why our Oystertainment® experiences are so popular with food and entertainment lovers across Europe and the US. Treat your guests to something extra special by booking an Oystertainment session for that upcoming birthday present, friends’ reunion, holiday party, bar or bat mitzvah, private party or any other event that deserves to be a celebration. We know you’ll find that our concept of Oystertainment® is so unique and appealing that everyone should try it at least once. It really gives your party the extra sparkle.
Off course, we strictly follow and respect the CDC guidelines regarding Covid-19. we have all safety measures in place when packing, opening and delivering oysters including face masks, gloves and sanitized workstations and tools. We do everything we can to keep you, your guests and our team stay safe.
