Shake Society

OPENED1165 DAYS AGO

Shake Society is one of the best new dessert spots in the West Side of Manhattan.

New York City’s favorite ice cream store has branched out into shakes with a new stand at Gansevoort Market – Shake Society. The new opening comes from the team behind the hugely popular Big Gay Ice Cream which started in New York City with an ice cream truck in 2009 and now serves their sweet-laced concoctions out of two New York City locations.

With the demand for milkshakes growing ever-more prominent following the likes of Black Tap who went viral last year and even expanded their location this year with Black Tap Down, it was only a matter of time before Big Gay Ice Cream jumped on board.

Unlike the brand’s other two locations – which focus on soft serve, with playful items like the Salty Pimp – Shake Society focuses primarily on shakes and floats. Whilst this part of town does play host to some great spots, a fun shake stop is one of the things that was missing. But now, sweet-toothed guests can dive head-first into milkshake flavors include a strawberry-Nutella, peanut butter and mint-Oreo.

For the more adventurous, there are other, more unique, flavors like ginger-curry and a tang-creamsicle. Floats on offer include a root beer float, a Mexican coke and a lime float.

BGIC was co-founded by partners Doug Quint and Bryan Petroff who decided to start driving an ice cream truck in the summer of 2009. Naturally, Big Gay Ice Cream was the first name that came to mind and New Yorkers responded so positively that they eventually swapped the truck for a permanent location in the East Village and then opened another in the West Village a year later.

Shake Society is a new and exciting step for the brand and one that we are very excited to follow. If you’re headed to the Meatpacking District and are looking for a pick me up, then Shake Society is your best bet.
