Apparently Silver Lake’s cachet knows no boundaries. A sign reading “Coming Soon Silver Lake Juice Bar” has appeared on a Hillhurst Avenue storefront in Los Feliz. The new juice bar, which is an outpost of Silver Lake Juice & Tea in Silver Lake, is the most recent example of how the neighborhood’s name has been stamped on businesses far outside its generally recognized boundaries. For example, in Echo Park, there is the Silver Lake Medical Center, which rises above the 101 Freeway (the hospital refers to this as its “downtown campus.” Meanwhile, anyone who wants to attend classes at Bikram Yoga Silverlake will have to travel to Atwater Village.
In fact, the Silver Lake brand is being exported to Orange County. That’s where Silver Lake Juice Bar plans to open it’s third location in Newport Beach.
