New Juice Bar Brings Tropical Fun to Court Street

CARROLL GARDENS — In this weather, it's the closest we're getting to the tropics.

A new juice and smoothie bar opened its doors on Jan. 19 at 205 Court St.

Tropic Juice Bar & Grill serves sandwiches, bagels, salads, and of course, juices and smoothies made only with "a fresh order of fruits and vegetables," said Manager Sharif Ali. 

The juice bar also has an array of protein powders and milks that can be added to any drink order. 

Its Carroll Gardens location is the first for the shop, but there are plans to open more locations, said Ali, who grew up in the neighborhood. 

The location was formerly home to Wyckoff Corner Pharmcy, which has moved across the street to 203 Court St., Pardon Me For Asking Blog reports.

For now, Ali hopes the colorful shop will bring Court Street back to life, he added. 

Juices and Smoothies are priced at $3.99 for 16 oz and $4.99 for 24 oz. 

Tropic will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to midnight.
