Dupont Circle, DC

DC’s inaugural Shack opened May 2011 and is centrally located near historic Dupont Circle.  Grab a ShackBurger or shake and hobnob with DC’s finest politicos and pundits.  The DC Shack is proud to be the People’s Patty!

Looking for a fun, chill neighborhood spot to host a private event? The loft is available for birthday parties, meetings, showers – whatever the occasion you’re celebrating, our team’s got you covered. Email us to book it!

Want Shack for your shindig? No sweat. For orders of 10 or more burgers, call or email ahead before 10 AM the morning you need your order.
