DUMBO: Your Shack Has Come In

Jun 17, 2014

The newest addition to the Shake Shack family opened today, Tuesday, June 17th, at 11AM on the waterfront in Brooklyn’s historic DUMBO neighborhood.

Located at 1 Old Fulton Street on the corner of Water Street, the DUMBO Shack is directly across from bustling Brooklyn Bridge Park, with views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. This is Shake Shack’s second Brooklyn location—the first opened in December 2011 in Downtown Brooklyn.

The DUMBO Shack features all the Shack classics, plus a location-specific concrete that’s an homage to nearby Jane’s Carousel. The Caramel Carousel concrete features vanilla frozen custard, shattered sugar cone, sea salt, caramel sauce and banana.

Another new concrete is the Brooklyn Pie Oh My which features vanilla frozen custard blended with a slice of fresh-made pie from Brooklyn’s own Four & Twenty Blackbirds. Pie flavors will change seasonally—kicking things off is Strawberry Balsamic.

For all the wine connoisseurs out there, this is the first location to serve Shake Shack’s signature Frog’s Leap Shack Red and Shack White on tap—not just in bottles like all other locations. Cheers to innovation!

The DUMBO location also features Shake Shack’s new fresh fries, which are hand-cut daily at the Shack.

As part of Shake Shack’s community outreach efforts and mission to Stand for Something Good®, the DUMBO Shack is partnering with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, a non-profit network of volunteers that rescues, rehabilitates and finds homes for adoptable dogs from high kill shelters in the rural south. Five percent of sales from the Caramel Carousel concrete supports Badass Brooklyn.

In keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction techniques, portions of the interior walls of the DUMBO Shack are clad in reclaimed Alaskan Yellow Cedar from retired rooftop water towers on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The Shack also features wooden paneling made from reclaimed Southern Yellow Pine originally used for NYC construction scaffolding.

All of the interior tabletops were handcrafted by local furniture maker Mark Jupiter, who designs and builds furniture from reclaimed materials. The tables at the DUMBO Shack are made from locally-salvaged factory beams including Heart Pine found in an old coffee warehouse, shaving soap factory, and automotive garage.

Let’s do this Brooklyn!
