Shake Shack

24 Market Building, Covent Garden, The Piazza, London WC2E 8RD


Shake ShackDanny Meyer's Shake Shack burger chain, a huge hit in America, sprouted from a hot dog cart first set up in 2001 in Madison Square Park in Manhattan. Now there are restaurants in six US cities from Massachusetts to Florida. On Friday 5th July 2013 London gets the very first Shake Shack to cross the pond. Located across three venues in the historic Covent Garden Market Building - including outside seating - Shake Shack brings its queue-worthy Angus beef burgers and beloved 'shroom burgers to London. As with each Shack, it's constructed from recycled and sustainable materials, whether that means the tabletops have been sourced from reclaimed bowling alley lanes, or the walls made of reclaimed antique barn wood. If the flagship Shack in Madison Square Park is anything to go by, they'll be queuing up for these burgers. Burger fans are spoilt for choice in Covent Garden with MEATMarket also within the Piazza building in Jubilee Hall and, opened just the day before the Shake Shack launch, another US import Five Guys. The battle of the burger has commenced!
