SHAKE SHACK IS OPENING A SECOND OUTLET
Shake Shack took Singapore by storm when they opened their first outlet in Jewel Changi Airport, and now the popular American fast-food chain is expanding its grounds and opening a new outlet right smack in the heart of Singapore in the first quarter of 2020.
The second outlet will be calling a historic building home. Located at 89 Neil Road in Tanjong Pagar, it was once a factory that produced Singapore’s famous Tiger Balm for 50 years, and was also previously eBay's office. The opening will add one more dining option to the already vibrant food scene in the neighbourhood.
Aiming to keep its mission of supporting the arts, the fast-food chain has worked with Singaporean artist Sam Lo to blend Shake Shack's icon with Peranakan-inspired patterns on the hoarding artwork to give fans a glimpse of what the new outlet may look like.
Stand a chance to win merch that is exclusive to 89 Neil Road when you upload a picture of the hoarding design on Instagram with the hashtag #shackARTintown.
