The Juice Press began life here on the Lower East Side in 2010 (70 East First Street), and has since taken Manhattan by storm. Three years later, the brand has eleven locations below its collective belt and is poised for the lucky dozen. Now the raw juice and smoothie bar is bringing it all back home, heading south of Houston and gambling on the Hell Square marketplace of nightlife and hotels.

Interior renovations are underway inside 105 Rivington Street, the glassy storefront sandwiched between Viktor & Spoils and the Hotel on Rivington. Brown paper still obscures any evidence of the forthcoming tenant, but there is one clue for the masses.

Before the Juice Press unloaded the fruit, so to speak, Rivington was heretofore occupied by Platinum Salon. Its years-long tenure came to a close back in March.

How do you feel about having a Juice Press location here?

The city will screw the Lower East Side waterfront by allowing this 1,000-foot tower to proceed. Indeed, the Department of City Planning reversed course this week, and will now hear the case for this monstrosity. This despite the ongoing litigation over the contested few parcels on the backside of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. It’s certainly a […]

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

Okay, so now it’s really happened. Again. The reincarnated St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street – also known as Rivington F+B – is officially kaput. This past Wednesday was its final night in business. The gates are now shuttered for good, capping a decade (including a year-long hiatus) for the establishment. The closure follows two months […]

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area. The bold choice to move the front […]
