Construction is underway for a new smoothie and juice bar in uptown Hoboken, as an established company with three other New Jersey locations is expanding into the Mile Square City.

Jungle Juice, which currently has locations in Cranford, Madison, and Morristown, will be taking up residence at 1016 Washington Street. The business purchased the first-floor retail condominium at the property earlier this year and the city’s Planning Board granted approvals in July for the project. Hoboken-based Nastasi Architects is responsible for the design work.

The menu will consist of health-conscious smoothies that use non-fat yogurt, plus a plethora of vegetable juices. Their organic wheatgrass shots are a highlight and, for those with a sweet tooth, the store features milkshakes with skim milk for a healthier version of the treat.

Jungle Juice will also have acai and pitaya bowl options for customers, which consist of different whole fruit or vegetable mixes with other ingredients like granola, honey, or peanut butter.

Renovation work is in full swing, and one of the owners of Jungle Juice told Jersey Digs in an email that they are aiming to open their Hoboken location in Spring 2018.

  1. Curious that during the recent election cycle, detractors kept saying that Washington Street is dying and large percentages of storefronts are empty and at the same time these constant news reports of new businesses are investing in updating and opening on that very same street. Perhaps business owners understand that after the $17.5 plus major revamp of Washington Street will be done next year Hoboken will be an even a better opportunity for their success.

  2. The fact that change of uses above 4th street have to go before the city for yet one more round of lengthy, expensive and frankly a waste of time approval is a main reason vacancies sit that way for periods of not months but were talking over a year. This city is so behind the times of anything you can even consider rational. The zoning apparently had not been updated since the early 1980’s. Zoning, council, planning, mayor please use common sense for once and stop being aggressively business unfriendly.

  3. Understand some business owners may want those changes to happen but I also understand those who now live above 4th Street are wary of such changes.
