New York's famous 'crazyshake' restaurant Black Tap is heading to Disneyland

A New York sensation is heading to Disneyland, as the restaurant that launched the “crazyshake” milkshakes will open its first California location there.

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer announced its plans to open the new spot in winter 2018 at Downtown Disney District. While there’s no shortage of crazy food options at Disneyland, Black Tap is in a league of its own when it comes to elaborate concoctions. Since launching their crazyshakes, the restaurant has seen guests waiting in lines for hours to get their hands on one. They even launch limited edition flavours like a Brooklyn Blackout Cake Shake, in collaboration with The Little Cupcake Shop, and with the iconic Brooklyn restaurant Junior’s to create the ultimate New York milkshake topped with a slice of cheesecake.

Black Tap is creating a new concept for its Disney location, offering “a casual vibe reminiscent of a classic American luncheonette with a distinctly New York feel, and will feature indoor and outdoor seating”. Since the restaurant opened in New York’s SoHo neighbourhood back in 2015, its footprint is expanding as quickly as its social media following. The restaurant has opened five locations in New York, and in Dubai and Geneva. Its first location outside of New York will open in Las Vegas at The Venetian in December 2017.
