We’re coasting into California! Shake Shack® is proud to announce that it will open its first-ever California location on Tuesday, March 15th at 11:00 AM in the heart of West Hollywood at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and West Knoll Drive, one block west of La Cienega Boulevard.
Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers, chicken (no hormones added ever), griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle cut fries and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.
“We’re stoked to finally join California’s one-of-a-kind burger culture,” said Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. “Shake Shack is about great burgers and so much more. We’ve heard from fans across LA for years, and we’re humbled by the passionate response we’ve received so far. We invite all Angelenos to come out and see what makes Shake Shack so special.”
In addition to the Shack classics, the West Hollywood Shack will feature the LA-only Roadside Double, a double Swiss cheeseburger topped with Dijon mustard and onions simmered in bacon and beer. The Shack will be spinning up a selection of local frozen custard concretes: Brownie Points (vanilla custard, Larder Baking Company salted caramel chocolate brownie, peanut butter sauce and chocolate toffee) and Rainbow Connection (vanilla custard, Cofax spiced crumb donut, Sqirl Seascape Strawberry & Rose Geranium Jam and rainbow sprinkles). A remix on the fan favorite Shack Attack®, LA edition (chocolate custard, fudge sauce, Larder Baking Company salted caramel chocolate brownie and Compartes dark chocolate chunks, topped with chocolate sprinkles) will also be available.
Endless summers can be enjoyed with our selection of hand-picked wine and local craft beer from Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Ballast Point Brewing, Angel City Brewing, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co., Lost Coast Brewery, and North Coast Brewing Co., in addition to the Shack-exclusive Shack Red® and Shack White® wine from Frog’s Leap Winery and ShackMeister® Ale from Brooklyn Brewery.
As part of its mission to Stand For Something Good®, Shake Shack will donate five percent of sales from the Rainbow Connection concrete to support LA PRIDE, advancing human rights, education, outreach and equality for the LGBT community, and the Shake Shack team will volunteer at events run by the charitable organization.
Shake Shack continues its focus on creating a community hub with West Hollywood. To pay homage to the vintage burger stand culture of California, the new freestanding Shack designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture features dramatic overhangs, exaggerated horizontal and angular lines. A sprawling patio is shaded by wooden slats that provide dapple shadows reminiscent of sitting under a tree. Meanwhile, anchored in the middle of the patio sits a Magnolia tree—adorned with hanging lights, giving the West Hollywood Shack a park-like, intimate feel, while making a playful nod to the outdoor string lights of the original Madison Square Park Shack. The exterior walls are clad with ATAS sustainable white corrugated metal—a reference to its mid-century architecture, along with western red cedar siding and ceilings. Like all Shacks, this location features booths made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and hand-crafted tabletops made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes
Celebrating the ongoing art culture of West Hollywood, Shake Shack commissioned local artist Kim West to paint an abstract mural of washy, layered flowers with a sunset palette. The mural is located outside at the northwest corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and West Knoll Drive.
Shake Shack is thrilled to share that two additional California locations are slated to open in 2016 in Glendale and 2017 in Downtown LA.
