Kieran Roberts, the CEO and founder of Green Grotto Juice Bar, created a juice bar that offers you the whole package. This juice bar is aesthetically pleasing, provides a sense of comfort and relaxation, and of course, has those organic fresh-pressed juices & smoothies, Jamaican patties, and tasty acai bowls.
Kieran is an experienced mixologist of over 15 years, a former R&B singer, and a voice-over artist. He is an entertainer and artist at heart and strives to incorporate all of this into his juice bar.
The moment I walked into his shop, I noticed the TV’s, the artwork, and the little games on each of the tables. You see a place to charge your phone so you sit and stay. You see Connect 4 on the table so you stay and start playing it because it’s nostalgic. You see the friendly employees, owner, and guests so you stay to engage in conversation. This welcoming atmosphere is why people love Green Grotto. You come for the juice, but you stay for the experience.
Kieran not only has a passion for creativity and work, but also a passion for a healthy lifestyle and for people. Despite having other professional endeavors, Kieran chose to open a juice bar because he wanted to share his healthy lifestyle with others. He wanted to show people that eating healthy shouldn’t be a chore. It should be a fun and tasteful aspect of your life. Kieran wanted Green Grotto Juice Bar to offer downtown Los Angeles a healthier option for every day people.
The ingredients and mixture of fruits in these juices and acai bowls stem from Kieran’s Jamaican roots. All prices are affordable ranging from only $7.50 to $9.50. Furthermore, Green Grotto’s wellness shots are the cheapest in LA, costing only $2.75-3.75 per shot.
