When it’s hard to decide between desserts, JoJo’s can save the day. Have your cookie and eat it too—on top of a delicious milkshake.
JoJo’s Milk Bar, which has been making waves in the dessert bar scene with intricate and decadent offerings, opened in River North in February 2019 and recently expanded to a milkshake kiosk in Streeterville.
JoJo’s Shake Bar is on the second floor Mezzanine of Water Tower Place, near kid-friendly shops such as American Girl, The LEGO Store and The Art Of Dr. Seuss.
JoJo’s will be partnering with Unicorn World By Lola + The Boys, another nearby kids store, to offer the Unicorn Shake, a blueberry cherry shake, topped with items like cotton candy, a sprinkle-dipped cone and candy Do Do’s.
Co-founder Robbie Schloss is excited to bring JoJo’s to Water Tower and hopes customers will take part in the “grander-than- life” experience. The “enhanced retro diner” was inspired by Schloss’s childhood and named for his daughter.
Unlike its River North location, which serves food and alcohol, JoJo’s Shake Bar focuses on sweeter fare. Menu items include the Chocolate Nirvana, a shake with Oreos, and the BIGGIE Salted Caramel hot chocolate. The site offers infused milks and assorted freshly baked cookies— if you prefer them separate from the milkshake.
JoJo’s Milk Bar in River North is also adding some new options.
“JoJo’s will also embark on a new partnership with Chica- go-based manufacturer of organic Cannabidiol (CBD) and CBD products, Half Day CBD, for adult diners interested in adding CBD oil or gummies to milk- shakes, cocktails, hot chocolate drinks and oats,” according to a news release.
JoJo’s Shake Bar is open 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit jojosmilkbar.com.
