Feel the Squeeze:
Some of the Best Juice Bars in Woodland Hills
At one point, juice bars were all the rage throughout L.A., as it promised to cleanse, detox and reset the systems of all those high-heel-stiletto-wearing fashionistas out there dying to keep their shapes as they strolled down Rodeo Drive in wildly expensive skirt suits, Louis Vuitton purses in hand. Fast-forward to the beginning of 2016, and the world seems even busier today, giving Los Angelinos another reason to continue the juicing trend. Now, the concept has settled into being a standardized part of living a healthy life as opposed to just “a thing;” yet, “a thing” it remains: Juice bars have opened in such L.A. hot spots as the Ace Hotel downtown and in Highland Park, adding to the dozens of locales where people are paying in the double digits for their luxo juice fix.
