Stick to your goals in downtown JOMO!


The holidays are over and the beginning of spring is less than 80 days away. And hey, if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow February 2, warm weather might be here even sooner. You know what that means — it’s time to put away the gingerbread cookies and pick up the kale smoothie. In your quest to trade in your winter fluff for your summer bod, there’s some good news – you can still hang out at your favorite places downtown without sacrificing your goals. Below are healthy options at some of your favorite downtown bars and restaurants.


Club 609, 609 S. Main

Don’t want to pass up on Happy Hour at Club 609? Just swap your usual cocktail or beer for something a little friendlier to your waistline. Some ideas are Martini, Gimlet, Mojito an Old Fashioned, or just opt to mix your choice of liquor with club soda or tonic. Or go for a light beer! The possibilities are endless!


JB’s Downtown, 112 S. Main

Did you know a fitness class is offered at JB’s Downtown? Rock out while you work out with POUND, a new style of exercise that incorporates dance, Pilates and playing the drums! Learn all about POUND on page 64.


Joplin Avenue Coffee Company, 506 S. Joplin

While sweet, sugary coffee drinks may be delicious, they aren’t the greatest for your fitness goals. Luckily, Joplin Avenue Coffee Company has a full menu of skinny lattes and a ton of healthy smoothie options. You’ll also find a wide variety of healthy salads, wraps and sandwiches.


Red Onion Café, 203 E. Fourth St.

Inspired by his success on the ketogenic diet, General Manager John Starchman developed a full keto ‘Food For Life’ menu for the restaurant. The menu has tons of delicious, guilt-free options. In fact, you can read all about the Red Onion keto menu in the October 2018 issue of Show Me The Ozarks.
