Shake Shack to Open 6th Outlet in S’pore at Great World; Has Partnered With Local Artist
The mural, effervescent in swirling shades of blue, green, white, orange and red, pays tribute to the once-ebullient amusement park that captured the hearts of merrymakers of all ages.
This parallels Shake Shack’s broad level of appeal, with its huge selection of sumptuous burgers, sides and iconic shakes sure to leave you spoiled for choice.
The mural’s prominent shapes and lines are distinctive features of tobyato’s art style, which give it a playful feel typical of his work.

This isn’t the first time that Shake Shack has worked with local artists. The company has once collaborated with local artist SKLO (“Sticker Lady” Samantha Lo) to commission a mural for their outlet at 89 Neil Road, which features auspicious Chinese symbols, Malay roof eaves and Peranakan tiling, as well as touches of Art Deco.
This new outlet will be located at #01-101, Great World, 1 Kim Seng Promenade, Singapore 237994. The mall is easily accessible by several bus stops and MRT stations, with the Orchard, Tiong Bahru and Fort Canning MRT stations merely a short walk away.
The other five Shake Shack outlets are located at Jewel Changi Airport, Neil Road, Liat Towers at Orchard, Suntec City, and VivoCity.
It is likely to be opening this spring, which could be anytime from the end of March to June.
Although there hasn’t been any information released on the menu items of this new outlet, we can probably expect to see well-known favourites such as the signature ShackBurger and the classic vanilla, chocolate, salted caramel and coffee shakes.
