Installation is underway at 5 Cambridge Center where Beatnik Beverage Company will open in about a week, the new juice and coffee bar shared on Instagram.
Beatnik Beverage Co. is a partnership between Puritan & Co. chef Will Gilson and his father, David Gilson, of the Herb Lyceum in Groton. The latter will provide the produce for cold-pressed juices, and there will also be kombucha, nitro-poured iced coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as previously reported. The juices will be bottled to go, as well as made-to-order, also to go.
"This is strictly a bar," Will Gilson told the Boston Globe a couple weeks ago. "We’re all about tasty drinks on the go."
The shop will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
5 Cambridge Center is also home to the Kendall Square Legal Sea Foods and a Clover brick-and-mortar, as well as Google. Elsewhere in Kendall Square, Mother Juice opened a brick-and-mortar shop last fall.
Cold-pressed and raw beverages are all the rage in the Boston area this year. Union Square in Somerville is next in line for its own juice bar, with The Juice Union slated for a September debut.
