Anyone who is familiar with Busch Stadium knows that Ballpark Village is the place to be for pre and postgame celebrations. For Cardinals fans, it is party central with a chance to get a hometown Budweiser at every stop. The village is also becoming a dining destination and is now going to be home to the uber-popular Shake Shack.

Named after the ride at the Rydell High Year-End Carnival at the end of the movie Grease, Shake Shack has become a household name across the globe. St. Louis native and owner of New York’s Union Hospitality Group, Danny Meyer, is bringing the acclaimed shake and burger joint to a location near Ballpark Village.
Meyer recently finalized plans for a location in the Central West End, the first in St. Louis, but he is most excited to bring a spot close to the park. Early plans are for the space near the Fudgery, on the northwest corner of Phase One of Ballpark Village. According to St. Louis Magazine, construction documents have been made and "at least some are out to bid." The new spot is not a sure thing, but the redbird faithful can at least be cautiously optimistic. In the meantime, you should be able to frequent 32 North Euclid Avenue location soon.
Shake Shack started as a food cart in NYC’s Madison Square Park in 2004 but has since become one of the fastest-growing food chains. Currently, they have locations in 17 states including 22 in New York alone including one at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. Shake Shack is also available internationally in more than 15 countries.
