Mare’ka, L.A.’s newest all-organic bar and café in Studio City, already boasts an impressive roster of celeb patrons, most recently Vanessa Hudgens. An unsuspecting watering hole featuring exclusive day and night drinks, it's the perfect joint for an afternoon pick-me-up or evening party boost. Tucked inside a busy strip mall, this new Ventura Boulevard gem is easy to overlook, but should not be missed.

Stop in for a Lady Chloe smoothie (a sexy mix of fruit yogurts with a touch of coconut milk), a Spicy Lemonade Tonic, or any number of freshly squeezed juices in the morning. To satisfy any organic craving, check out delicious bistro items with French, Italian and Pacific Rim twists like ahi tuna tartare or meat pizza.
A healthy and nutritious night out starts here! Get ready for a slew of freshly juiced, awe-inspiring organic cocktails minus the next-day hangover. Favorites include A Date with David Bowie Cocktail (a bubbly mixture of orange and grapefruit juices), The Work of the Devil Martini (blackberries and basil) and Melo-Mint (a refreshing watermelon and cucumber specialty). Mare’ka also offers an impressive number of beers, wine and sake for the anti-cocktail contingent.
Mare’ka provides free Wi-Fi all day, so be prepared to share café space with aspiring screenwriters and industry meetings galore.
