A Great Place to Relax and Be Social

Kava Bars are popping up all over the US and for a great reason! A Kava bar is a great place to socially drink Kava, interact, and learn more about this increasingly popular root.

Kava is a perfect social drink. It makes you a little more talkative, happy, and relaxed. You’ll sleep real well after a night drinking Kava. And, unlike after a trip to a traditional bar serving alcohol, you’ll have no nasty hangover or side effects in the morning.

What to Expect At a Kava Bar

Kava bars are typically designed around a Pacific island theme to create a very relaxed atmosphere. Most bars serve traditionally prepared kava root either in coconut shells, called Bilos, or in similarly shaped, more modern, colorful cups.

As well as traditionally prepared kava drinks, most bars also offer customers other types of kava drinks where kava mixed with a fruit juice or puree or coconut water or milk to minimize the regular earthy flavor of the drink. Snacks or tapas with a pacific island flair are also available since kava is best consumed with food.

Kava bars will very rarely serve alcohol since kava and alcohol consumption should not be combined.

When you visit a Kava bar you’ll soon discover why they are a great alternative place to chill out and de-stress after work.


Kava Bar Origins

On the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, Nakamal is the word used to describe a traditional meeting place, a place for get-togethers, ceremonies and, of course, gathering to drink kava!

Nakamals are located in most populated Vanuatu communities and, it is interesting to note, most do not bear lockable doors, signifying that all friendly guests are welcome. With that said, traditionally Nakamals only allowed men to enter. Women might be allowed in to prepare or serve kava but not to join the group gathering or consume the drink. Nowadays, many urban Nakamals have discarded this rule. Learn more about Kava Culture.
