HarlemGal Inc was invited to the soft opening/private event of Harlem Shake Restaurant today and yes, we had a great time! Harlem Shake takes you back in time with its vintage look from the 50’s. Not only is Harlem Shake providing a classic look and feel, it is spacious and filled with a ton of light since it sits right on the corner of Lenox Avenue and 124th Street.
Inside there are vinyl stools lined up along their corner windows, vinyl booths posted against the wall where the now famous Harlem Shake photo hangs of the beautiful black women winking, and there is a celebrity wall of signed photos on display wishing Harlem Shake all the best with their upcoming opening. Former President Bill Clinton is up on the wall, along with Janet Jackson to Marcus Samuelsson and more.
As for the food, I had a Harlem Shake cheeseburger for $6.95, sweet yam fries for $3.95 and a Harlem shake shortie for $3.95. The Harlem shake shortie is a red velvet shake made with Tonnie’s Minis Cupcakes. If you like red velvet cake, then you will like this shake.
All of the food items I had were delicious. I especially like the bun on the hamburger. It was very fresh and it stayed connected at the back so nothing dripped out.
Oh, by the way. Harlem Shake will offer bottled and draft beer, plus select wines, from $5-8 for beer and $7 to $12 for a glass of wine.
Harlem Shake will open at noon this Thursday, May 16 as this blog first reported. Their grand opening will be on June 13! See you at Harlem Shake Restaurant.

If you were planning on stopping by Harlem Shake, the restaurant that is opening up soon on Lenox Avenue on May 14, not so fast. Sources tell HarlemGal Inc that the opening day of Harlem Shake, no not the dance or recent video craze, but the actual restaurant in Harlem, is set to open to the public on May 16.
Similar to most new dining establishments in Harlem, Harlem Shake will do a lot of private practice runs before they actually let the public in. So stand by and be ready on May 16.
