This fall, the beloved Melvin’s Juice Box will go glam with the debut of its second location in the Dream Downtown hotel. And it’s interesting to note that the Dream Hotel sought out a juice bar instead of, say, a coffee bar to woo customers (hello Stumptown in the Ace Hotel).
The trendy cafe will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On the menu? Melvin’s famous Body Good Salads, grab-and-go wraps, and, of course, Melvin’s 100 percent organic, fresh juices and smoothies. Dream Downtown executive chef Michael Armstrong (formerly of TAO Las Vegas) is developing a Melvin’s-inspired menu to add to the offerings.
Guests can access Melvin’s Juice Box directly through the hotel, or via its own side entrance on 16th Street. No word yet on whether the cafe will stay open late to capture the Dream’s late-night revelers—and thereby help prevent many a hangover. –Carla Vass
