A Guide to D.C.'s Growing Juice Bar Scene

Juicing can be divisive, but juice is still delicious

Trendy juice bars have popped up across the country in recent years, though the jury is still out over the health benefits from juicing. Some swear by the glowing skin, increased energy and detoxed gut. Others cite sugar counts, fiber loss, and cost. After all, that $10 drink doesn't come with a shot of vodka.

D.C. is no exception. Eater first published this guide in January, and since then, juice bars continue to expand in D.C. Local companies like Jrink and South Block continue to add locations, while other plays on the concept materialize (like Jaco's combination juice bar and taco stand).

The thought of consuming only mail-order liquids for days is understandably difficult for many people to stomach. But for those willing to swap out an occasional lunch or dessert for a freshly-pressed mix of vegetables and fruits, here are some places to stay on track.
