Colorful Colorado: Ace juice bar starts pouring
ACE opened early today -- as it will every weekday morning from here on out. You can thank bartender Regan Horacek for that. She's looked at studies on juice, and found that 75 percent of adults don't get enough of their daily recommended vitamins or the suggested daily servings of fruits and vegetables. And since juice is a great way to meet those needs, she decided to open a juice bar at ACE.
Juices, from left: Orange/A.C.E. (carrot, lemon, orange); Red/juice of the day (watermelon); Green (celery, pear, kale); Purple (cucumber, beet, kale, apple). All photos by Danielle Lirette.
All juice is served to-go -- but you can stay and drink it on the outside patio, when the weather is warmer. And raw foods -- including nuts, dried fruits, flax and chia seeds, almond butter and honey -- are also available.
The juice bar at Ace will be open Monday through Friday from 8 to 11 a.m., when the lunch menu starts. Call 720-897-8002 for more information.
