SAN FRANCISCO—The juicing trend that has become even easier for frequent travelers to take advantage of with the launch of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ new fresh juice menu.
Created to promote excellent health and boost energy, Kimpton’s new juice menu features three healthy juice blends made from freshly picked local fruits and vegetables. Currently available at 10 Kimpton restaurants across the country, the program will be rolled out across all of the company’s properties nationwide later this year.

The juices will be highlighted on breakfast, lunch and pool menus for restaurant and hotel guests to enjoy. All juices sold at Kimpton restaurants will be made using either a Cold Press Juicer or Centrifugal Juice Extractors.
Juicing is the latest in Kimpton’s list of wellness offerings for restaurant and hotel guests who are committed to staying healthy while traveling. Last year, the company introduced a partnership with PUBLIC Bikes to offer free bike rentals at all its properties, as well as designed a Kimpton custom yoga mat in partnership with Gaiam available in all guest rooms. And in recent years, both the hotels and restaurants have introduced several healthier dining options for guests, including special menus for those with allergies or dietary restrictions like gluten-free.
