New West Hollywood Juice Bar Offers Body-Cleansing Drinks

‘Nékter’ celebrates its grand opening Friday by giving away free smoothies and juices from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

It’s hot out there. Not to worry—a juice bar near you is offering free juices and smoothies on Friday, March 15.

Nékter, a new but fast-growing chain of natural, raw and vegan juices, is celebrating the grand opening of its second store in the Los Angeles area—and the 10th in Southern California—by giving away free drinks from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Located at 8951 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood, the store will also give away $25 gift cards to the first 50 customers.

Nékter sells green juices (think spinach, celery, broccoli), vegan smoothies, acai bowls and cold-pressed juice bottles. The company's West Hollywood location opened Feb. 26 and plans are underway for another store in Westwood.

Nékter launched its first juice bar in Orange County in 2010. Following a steady expansion in the region, where it has seven stores, the company opened a store in Santa Monica about three months ago, its first in Los Angeles county.

“West Hollywood is a very vibrant city and a great location for us,” the company’s co-founder and co-owner Steve Schulze said in a recent statement. “Juicing has become extremely popular in recent years and West Hollywood residents have their pulse on wellness and nutrition.”

Besides juices and smoothies, the company offers a “Nékter Cleanse” regimen of cold-pressed fruits and vegetables designed to flush the body of harmful toxins.

Those looking to lose some serious weight—or for a thorough body cleansing—can drink up to six bottles of cold-pressed juices and vegetables derived from a total of 15 pounds of produce and priced at $50. Click here for more information.

Someone being gay doesn't excuse the comment - one of his biggest slurs was against lesbians as well. And how do we know he is gay? Since some people might be inclined to grant someone a pass if he was, with not knowing who he is besides a supplied first name, it would be an easy way for straight homophobe to pass on slurs and then use that excuse. Bottom line - his comment is offensive and inappropriate and I assume it is against AOL's TOS, which we all agree to as guests here.

Scotty is right. We should take our cues from City Hall. The city's official policy is non-discrimination. If we are going to marginalize people we need to use acronyms. Right OTW?

The comments you are referring to were definitely not okay, were of a very homophobic nature and have been removed from the site. Please, when you see comments like this, FLAG them so they are taken down. When a comment is flagged three times it is removed from the site for an editor to review. Us Patch editors don't always see the comments right away.

I didn't see the offensive comment, but I am glad it was made (and removed). Those of us living in West Hollywood for many years are really living in a very fortunate bubble of tolerance in an otherwise intolerant larger society. So many of the freedoms for everyone to be who they are in West Hollywood don't exist in many places in the world. The slur coming from or near WeHo should remind everyone that if such a slur (I didn't see it) is felt and made, the rest of the Country, especially the more rural it is, the stronger the hate is. While we enjoy the life in our bubble, we should not forget to keep up the fight for the rest of the Country/World whenever we have a chance.
