With bars and clubs reopening at full capacity, Washingtonians may have forgotten the aftermath of a drunken night out. Here’s where to buy a refreshing juice the next morning:

the baker’s daughter
1402 Okie Street, northeast; 675 I St., NO
Want to taste the juice of a starred chef? Check out the Ivy City and Chinatown locations of Baker’s Daughter from Gravitas owner Matt Baker. Accompany a breakfast taco with an “Elixir du Dragon” (watermelon, lime, shishito pepper) or “Violeta” (pear, root vegetable, lemon, ginger).

Bar & Bean
2800 10th Street, Northeast
This Brookland organic juice spot, which was founded last summer, features classic blends of unique fruits like beetroot, pineapple and watermelon. For those looking to get started on a multi-day juice regimen, Bar and Bean offers juice cleansing packages ranging from three to seven days.

Doi Me
1800 14th St., NO
The modern Vietnamese restaurant, which reopened under a new owner last year, is not just a destination for tropical cocktails. You will also find freshly squeezed juices, such as watermelon and Thai basil or a blend of pineapple, mint, cilantro, lime and five spices.

Battle juice
Some locations FreshFarm Farmers Market, Old Town Alexandria Farmers Market
Offering five unique flavor blends, including a “green” spinach-pineapple-carrot blend and a “red” pomegranate-beet-raspberry blend, Fight Juice is a staple at any DC area farmer’s market. The juices, which use produce from local farms, are made using a blender instead of a press, so you get a lot of plant fiber.

Jaco juice and taco bar
1614 Wisconsin Ave., NW
Why not pair your juice with classic hangover food? Jaco Juice and Taco Bar serves a full menu of juices, smoothies, and healthy shots, as well as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and rice bowls. Enjoy a “Mean Green” or “Kitchen Sink” juice (and a taco) on their Georgetown patio.

JRINK offers a quiz to help you find the perfect juice for you.

South Block offers easy-to-clean packaging, with juices numbered one through six that can be enjoyed individually or in sequence. They also offer a wide range of smoothies and acai bowls. If you’re craving something a little more dairy, check out their herbal cashew and date ‘mylks’.

Toastic
Multiple DC zone locations
Sip blends made with jalapeño, activated charcoal, or parsley besides strawberries and bananas that you could toss in the blender at home. And if you’re hungry, Toastique offers a selection of sweet and savory toasts.

The water point
4004 34th street, Mont Rainier
