Famous Rapper and Friends Opens Juice Bar
The three friends, one of them happens to be a platinum-selling rapper, have opened a juice bar on Castle Hill Avenue.
Nyger Rollock’s, Leo Galvez and David “Styles P” Styles, are the three friends and they bonded over juice at a juice bar owned by Rollock’s in Harlem.
Galvez and designs were regulars, and quickly became hooked into the blends of fruit and vegetables the Rollock’s concocted. They soon learned the craft themselves, and therefore the three decided to require their juice to Galvez’s home neighborhood within the Bronx.
The juice bar, called Juices for all times, has been open for a few months. Word of mouth has been spreading quickly through Castle Hill, partially because of Styles’ fame, but also because of its unique atmosphere.
Styles, a Yonkers native, went platinum together with his group The LOX in 1998 and has released three solo albums, including one that went gold in 2002.
Juices for all times have exercise equipment along its back wall, plus an actual bar that customers are encouraged to take a seat and hang around at, as long as they’re drinking juice.
There is no menu yet either, so customers are encouraged to require the owners’ and bartender’s advice on what to urge to support their preference and their ailment. Juices for Life’s owners stand by the healthful properties of their product.
“I was eating tons of nutrients, but Rollock’s got me eating right,” Styles. “Our first goal is to urge everyone to be more health-conscious.”
They also decide to franchise within the not-too-distant future. Rollock’s may be a native of Trinidad, where making different sorts of juice blends is a component of the culture.
He has lived in NY for the past 22 years. When a replacement customer comes in, his first question is typically quite just ‘what’ll it be?’
“First, I ask them and ask if they need any sickness,” Rollock’s said. “Then we structure a diet program from there.”
Castle Hill resident Kelvin Esquea works at the barbershop across the road from Juices for all times and has become a daily since it opened.
“I was 240 pounds before I started juicing,” he said between reps at the store’s pull up bars. “I’m right down to 220. All their stuff is all-natural, I want to just get chicken and rice, greasy food.”
All of the Juices for Life’s ingredients come straight from the Hunts Point Market. Rollock’s go there to refill every two days.
Galvez, 30, who was previously a boxing coach and owned a confectionery, is the main connection to the neighborhood. He was a daily at Rollock’s’ Harlem shop.
“Nyger let me help out,” Galvez said. “I just started reading everything about juicing, buying and reading juice books and that I wanted to bring something healthy back to this community. I want to drive all the thanks to Harlem to get a good drink.”
