After dinner, Liquid undergoes a transformation. While diners are finishing up hearty pulled-pork sandwiches and fried pickles, a DJ steps into a booth. A switch is flipped, and multicolored lights shimmer across the low-lit interior as house music thunders from the speakers. The crowd goes wild.

Part restaurant, part bar, and part nightclub, Liquid spans three rooms, from a large dance floor to rows of tables and booths. Servers whisk bar-friendly eats to revelers until 1a.m., from spicy chicken wings to summer salads.

At the grills, the Liquid/Fresh Planet staff simmers up lean meats and veggies before assembling them into internationally inspired stuffed toasted pita and steaming rice bowls. Liquid/Fresh Planet strives to appeal to youngsters too, whipping up kid-friendly selections, such as cheese pizzas and PB&Js, and routinely checking beneath the stove for any potential boogeymen. Or follow the hum of whirring blenders through a forest of colorful red umbrellas to the Liquid/Fresh Planet front counter, where servers are busy folding fresh fruits and veggies into a variety of smoothies and wholesome eats. One packs a blender with organic oatmeal, fresh fruit, and whey protein, while another scoops up boosts from bottles of flaxseed, mixed vitamin, and ginseng.

At Situations Hair and Nail Studio, a multitalented team applies makeup, extends lashes, and sculpts brows to help beautify clients for special occasions. After the crew has worked its magic, resident stylist Latoya steps up to the styling chair. Latoya frames the artwork produced by her compatriots with curls or straightened locks, both of which can be swiftly enhanced by extensions and sew-ins. She uses natural products as often as possible in order to help clients feel as healthy as their locks. And above everything, she welcomes all manner of customers, describing her salon as a ?down-to-earth no-judgment zone.?

As a typeface, the Helvetica font communicates with no flourishes; it's a bare-bones style where what you see is what you get. Striving for the same simplicity, Helvetica Juice Bar & Cafe, which is run by the same owner as the Latin-themed Burroco Grill, offers a culinary experience that comes off as similarly natural and elegant. Inside, rustic raw-wood tables, art installations, and exposed-brick walls welcome guests as they approach a chalkboard holding the café’s simple menu of sweets and savories, gourmet tacos, crepes, sandwiches, and Latin American–inspired dishes.

As cooks prepare guests’ orders, they work only with ripe fruits, fresh meats, and other ingredients that have never been canned, frozen, or preserved. Topping the list of sustenance is a selection of sweet crepes made with Nutella and ice cream, or studded with fruit and cookies. Savory options may include Latin-inspired eats, such as barbacoa tacos. The café’s signature smoothies boast bananas and mangos, and juice blends incorporate fruits from around the world, such as high-fiber curuba, vitamin-rich lulo, and Caribbean fruits such as maracuya, lulo, and guanabana, A BYOB establishment, customers often bring liquor to add to the juice drinks, turning them into specialty cocktails. As further show of the café’s conscientious offerings, Helvetica’s iced and hot coffee drinks are squeezed from direct-trade beans and served in biodegradable cups.
