South Block Coming to Pike & Rose


South Block Coming to Pike & Rose

South Block, a smoothie and juice bar best known for their acai bowls, shared that they are opening a new location in Pike & Rose. 

Per their Instagram announcement, they are hoping to open by summer 2022.  They will be taking over the space currently occupied by the Residences At Pike & Rose leasing office, right next to the newly opened Call Your Mother Deli.  (The leasing office will move to the spot formerly occupied by Nava Health.) 

Along with their acai bowls, South Block offers other fruit and vegetable-based bowls, a range of smoothies, and cold pressed juices. 

They currently have eleven locations throughout DC and Virginia– their Pike & Rose spot will be their first location in Maryland. 

In addition to their brick and mortar locations, South Block has an online storefront where they sell pre-blended smoothie bowl kits that they deliver throughout the continental United States. 

South Block places an emphasis on giving back and doing good– they donate a portion of all juice sales to Fruitful Planet, an organization created by South Block’s founder that brings fruits and vegetables to underserved communities. Per their website, they also use organic, fair trade acai in order to help fight deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.
