It’s true — Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino — has finally opened the doors to his new boba shop, Jellyman.
For months online, from Reddit to X, there were rumors for months that the actor/artist was planning on opening a shop. Then, this past October, the rumors were confirmed and a few were lucky enough to try Jellyman during its soft opening. Now the doors are finally open to all.
Of course, Glover didn’t do it alone. This is a joint venture for both Glover and Luke Wood, who was former president of Beats by Dre. This unique boba shop is Donald Glover and Luke Wood’s very first incursion into the food and beverage business. In their own words, “Built by storytellers, Jellyman is The Big Global Company’s first expression of a magical space in a real life place.”
The interior is sleek and modern, yet galactic and futuristic. Online commentators agree, it’s a vibe. What sets Jellyman apart from other boba shops is that they use organic ingredients that are made fresh in-house. The menu has classic boba teas to new signature twists, like Jasmine Green Tea to Peanut Butter & Jelly Man.
It’s definitely something you have to experience for yourself. So head on over to Silverlake and check it out.
