Nekter Juice Bar, a California-based chain, is now open in South End.

It’s in the same shopping complex as the new Harris Teeter — the exact location is 2275 South Boulevard, Suite B.

Hours are Sunday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Juices are $6.50 for a 16 oz., $8.50 for a 24 oz. and $10.40 for 32 oz. Smoothies are $6.50 for a 16 oz. and $8.50 for a 24 oz.

If you’re a first-timer, I recommend the Berry Banana Burst Smoothie ($6.50) — strawberry, banana, blueberry, housemade cashew milk and a little agave nectar. It’s tasty.

“Nékter Juice Bar is the pioneer of the modern juice bar experience offering a truly fresh and clean menu of juices, smoothies, acai bowls and other healthy snacks that taste as great as they make you feel,” said founder Dr. Todd Engel. “We are fortunate to be able to open the first Nékter Juice Bars on the East Coast right here in North Carolina. ”
