Shake Shack Is Officially Open In The Short North

Shake Shack is officially open in the Short North.

The insanely popular burger chain opened on September 4 at 750 N. High St, on the ground floor of the upcoming Graduate Hotel.

This is the second Shake Shack here in Columbus. The first, located at Easton, opened in May.

The newest location is right in the heart of the Short North, with easy access to the CBUS and several area parking garages. The menu is standard when it comes to Shake Shack fare, but they do have an exclusive item you won’t want to miss: a custard treat called Brownie Points. The dessert is a collaboration with Fox in the Snow cafe and, not surprisingly, it’s as delicious as it looks.

Shake Shack Short North has an outdoor seating area where the restaurant hopes to host musicians from time to time. In the dining area, doors connect the restaurant to The Graduate Hotel, making late-night snacking even easier for guests visiting the area.

The Graduate Hotel is a 171-room boutique hotel, and will also feature a coffee shop, Poindexter Coffee. The hotel has already begun taking reservations and officially opens on Friday.

Shake Shack started as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park (NYC). The cart was a huge success, drawing crowds daily for three summers. In 2004, the cart became a permanent kiosk and Shake Shack was born. They’ve now expanded to 200 locations, serving up burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine, and more.

Go ahead and skip that homecooked dinner you were planning tonight because Shake Shack is calling my friends.
