Our History

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. 

So who is Sean Meenan? To list every title he could fairly claim would look a little something like this:  restaurateur, entrepreneur, environmental activist, photographer, film producer, writer, former NY Metro Light Heavyweight boxing champion, and Ray Ban model. 

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 for the Greenwich Village Youth Council, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, and the FAB Alliance.
