Jason Bran, one of LA’s most talented bartenders, expanded on the Greenhouse vision he created with business partner John Chae at The Original Farmers Market by opening a second juice bar with Chris Wilson in the NoHo Arts District.
Chris is a NoHo resident who scouted the space, which last housed a frozen yogurt and juice shop called Ice Krave. He previously worked with Jason at the original Greenhouse location and at The Warwick, a stylish Hollywood bar, before becoming a third partner in the venture.
Their NoHo outpost opened in October. The space features brick and reclaimed wood walls lined with aggressive paintings starring Eazy-E and zombies glued to phones. A concrete floor and exposed wood rafters help frame the interior, which also houses a concrete floor, Pigskin 621 A.D. football arcade game, high-top tables and benches. Their orange and green “g” logo resembles a carrot.
Juices ($5.99 for 12 ounces, $6.99 for 16 ounces) are made to order, avoid pasteurization and stabilizers, and come in combos like Essential with orange, carrot and ginger; Green Life with apple, celery, cucumber, spinach and romaine; and Red Alert with beet, apple, carrot, orange and lemon.
Smoothies ($7.99) have an even wider range. Matcha Cha matches matcha green tea with spirulina, banana, cherry extract and sprouted almond milk. Coco Berry Bliss combines blueberry, pear, coconut and cold-pressed apple juice. Pina Kale Ada teams mango with coconut, kale and cold-pressed pineapple juice. Blend your own or opt for a protein smoothie.
Bowls center on organic pure acai, a sweet-tart, antioxidant-rich Amazonian fruit. A “basic” bowl balances 11 ingredients, including strawberry, banana, cold-pressed apple juice, raw hemp milk and toppings like fruit, granola and local, organic honey. Tropical and “antiox” bowls incorporate even more nuances. The pitaya bowl stars a different fruit, and the green bowl features frozen avocado.
Steel-cut oats and kombucha anchor two other menu categories. You’ll even find wellness shots, 2-ounce pours like The OG with ginger, lemon, cayenne and oregano oil; or 2 Meric 2 Quit with turmeric, ginger and lemon.
