About Harlem Shake Brooklyn
“Our aim is to bring our celebrated concept to Brooklyn, with a bit of nostalgia and a nod to pop culture,” explains Jelena Pasic, “Not to mention, bring residents and visitors high-quality, affordable offerings in a welcoming environment.”
Harlem Shake offers a love note meant to embrace and pay homage to the area’s past with a space designed by a partner in the venture, Dardra Coaxum, from reused, recycled, and refurbished furniture and fixtures, to feel as if it has been a beloved local institution for generations. Careful thought and consideration went into restoring the building at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Sterling Place, with details meant to recall a dry goods store that was built in the 1800s then converted to a diner in the 1940s and run through the latter half of the 20th century.
Anchoring the space and continuing the tribute to old New York, the Brooklyn location will feature Harlem Shake’s “Wall of Fame” celebrating famous and notable patrons and friends with photos personally signed to the restaurant. From actors and musicians to politicians and athletes, each notable has a special connection to Harlem or Brooklyn (or both!). Another defining feature, “Miss Harlem Shake,” greets diners from the back wall of the restaurant. The large-sized lenticular photo depicts actress and fashion model Shannon Thornton showing off the real Harlem Shake as guests walk by. Other unique design features include a vintage jukebox, “Wall of Fab” featuring vintage hairstyles of neighborhood residents, a tobacco and water leak-stained tin ceiling, and hand-painted window signage.
