Our South Florida Kava Bars are relaxing, tranquil environments where you can come, kick back, drink a kava shell and relax within a non-judgmental, welcoming environment.
What Is Kava Kava?
Kava is a magical root from the south pacific. It has been used as a tradition for over 3,000 years. The relaxing effects that this root offers are truly remarkable. When mixed with water, properly strained and sold at Kavasutra, the effect it will have on you is one that must be experienced to be truly understood.
What is a Kava Bar?
Kava Bars have been a part of many island cultures for years such as Venuatu, Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, Futuna, Rotuma, Uvea and Hawaii. In most places, Kava is used for both ceremony and as a recreational drink.
KavasutrA honors the island traditions with the high quality, premium kava and a relaxing tranquil environment. The relaxing effects you experience from drinking Kava are a perfect compliment to social interaction without the potential dangers of drinking alcohol. KavasutrA Kava Bars are a perfect place to unwind and socialize with friends.
No word on an opening date just yet.
