LeBron James' Wife to Shut Down Her Brickell Juice Café

While LeBron James was in Miami during those glorious but brief four years, he and his family laid down roots that had us thinking maybe, just maybe, he truly was serious about staying in the Magic City for the long run. For example, his wife Savannah opened a juice café called the Juice Spot in Brickell. But now, more than a year and half after James left town, the café will close. 

According to the Miami Herald, Savannah hasn't been in town enough recently to manage the store. She may now look into opening a similar concept in Cleveland. Naturally. 

Located at 1800 SW First Ave, the Juice Spot maintained something of a following of Brickellites looking to pick up cold-pressed juices and açaí and oatmeal bowls. The shop has a decent three-and-half-star rating on Yelp, with some of the recent lower ratings specifically mentioning it was owned by LeBron's wife. 

"They tried to copy Jugo Fresh's concepts and recipes and make it there [sic] own, but failed, just like Lebron did in Cleveland this year," one Yelper wrote in a recent review. 

The closure of the café is just one of the latest ways the family is digging up whatever Miami roots it laid. James sold his Coconut Grove mansion in August for $13.4 million. 

However, he still returns to town occasionally to work with trainer David Alexander. 

His fashion store Unknwn remains open at Aventura Mall. 

James also retains the franchise rights to open locations of Blaze, a fast-casual pizza concept, in the South Florida area.
