Downtown Memphis welcomed a new restaurant and juice and smoothie shop this year. Bar Ware joins other eclectic dining destinations on the block, including Old Dominick Distillery, The Gray Canary, Guss Fried Chicken, and the future One Beale development.

The space comprises a warm, moody, open living room with signature soft seating, small tables along a banquette, and an expansive bar. A north-side patio, adorned with string lights and shade, seats up to 30 more.

On the Bar Ware menu, fresh seasonal ingredients are used to create small plates and larger sharable snacks alongside a section of ‘Knoxville Late Night steamed sandwiches. Leading the creativity in the kitchen is Head Chef Kevin Quinnell, most notably of Itta Bena and Southern Social.

Veteran bartender Jacob Leonard, who most recently led the bar program at The Second Line for six years, joins Bar Ware as Bar Manager. His full bar selection also includes a few firsts for Tennessee, including FROBEER, which keeps craft beers cold from pour to final sip.

Next door, JuiceBrothers, an international juice and smoothie shop from Amsterdam, took over the space. It has six locations in Amsterdam and two in New York.

JuiceBrothers offers relief in the early hours of the morning with fresh juices and smoothies and nutritious açai bowls and tonics. The menu uses organic fruits and vegetables with immunityboosting, antioxidantrich, antiinflammatory blends that promote overall wellbeing. They also serve freshly brewed coffee by local J. Brooks Premium Roasters.

JuiceBrothers is open TuesdaySaturday, 7 am-6 pm, and Sunday, 10 am 3 pm.

Bar Ware is open Tuesdays-Sundays at 11 am through dinner service with a special brunch menu and hours on Sunday.
