Habana Works is committed to building a community that supports diversity and mutual respect, through art. Our work seeks to inform positive change at a local scale, through programs that focus on uplifting and enriching the lives of young people, creating meaningful public art, and keeping a strong focus on environmental responsibility.
Before “going green” became everyone’s favorite buzz phrase, it was both Sean Meenan’s business model and personal goal. He founded Habana Works in 2006 as an extension of his already eco-conscious restaurants, hoping to create a space for his vision of urban environmentalism to be fully realized in the Brooklyn community.
When not busy opening thriving businesses or developing programs at Habana Works, Sean speaks on environmental issues at colleges, travels the world, and finds the time to sit on the board of the Greenwich Village Youth Council, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, and the FAB Alliance.
