JoJo's ShakeBAR to serve up booze-filled milkshakes at first Florida location

Something sweet is coming to Orlando!

Chicago-based JoJo's ShakeBAR will be bringing nostalgic feels and tasty treats when it opens its very first Florida location this month. 

Orlando locals and tourists alike will indulge in delicious diner classics, hand-crafted cocktails, decadent desserts, and over-the-top Biggie Shakes, all while being transported back to the 80s and 90s with JoJo's themed decor and fun vintage details. 

"Guests may opt for a center table to dine under JoJo’s signature glittering disco ball as bright pink neon clouds ‘drip’ from the ceiling, grab a seat at the Pastry Bar and enjoy a swing-outstool while watching JoJo’s chocolatiers dip gourmet treats, or stop by the walk-up window for treats on the go," JoJo's said in a press release.

And while everything about a milkshake takes you back to childhood, JoJo's also gives adult guests the option to kick it up a notch – by adding a spirit of their choice to one of the menu's creamy, frozen creations or hot chocolates.

A variety of salads, soups, and appetizers are also on the menu, but as founder Robbie Schloss says, JoJo's is no place for a diet.


"We take our work seriously but hope our guests don’t take us seriously. JoJo’s is about forgetting life’s stresses and enjoying good vibes in good company. Guests should indulge and enjoy a cheat meal and a boozy shake."

The restaurant is hosting its grand opening on Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19 at its new location at Pointe Orlando on International Drive.
