Jar Bar, one of my favorite spots in the city to grab a bite of raw food or juice–the only raw food restaurant in Philly–abruptly packed up and moved all operations to the suburbs last week. While I wish them great success in their new location in Radnor, I was pretty bummed that the options for organic juice in the city had gone from really solid to practically zero overnight. My love and I had actually made plans to grab juice at Jar Bar with Rachel, a beloved childhood friend I hadn’t seen in years, and suddenly our juice venue of choice had closed without warning! Oh no!!
Luckily–fatefully–Ryan Crown’s Juice Club opened just a couple weeks ago and I’m SO glad we were able to down our liquid nutrition and spend some quality time there! Ryan Crown’s Juice Club is a gorgeous spot nestled in a great location, the Sweat Fitness on 15th and Arch. The bar is a tiny oasis packed with beautiful living accents like plants suspended above the bar in mason jars. The juice menu is the product of mastermind owner and creator Ryan, who lovingly prepares extraordinary libations for his juice delivery clients and juice bar patrons. Ryan is seriously knowledgeable about juicing. Got acne? He’s got a genius herbal and veggie blend to take care of that. Craving green juice that tastes amazing? Grab the Lemon Ginger Blast, Ryan’s signature drink that recently landed him “Best Green Juice In the City” accolades from Philadelphia Magazine.
The alternate title for this blog post was going to be “If You Juice It, They Will Come,” because I’ve decided that despite our unhealthful gastronomy reputation, Philly has a growing nutrition awareness current flowing through it and just needs the right visionary leaders and businesses to usher in a new age of wellness here. I’m super grateful for the new Ryan Crown’s Juice Club, and will be sure to patronize it as much as I can. Let’s all support this gorgeous new Philly institution and get our drink on, yeah?
