Kava Bar

Welcome to the only Kava Bar in Marin!

Kava is a plant and the name of a beverage made from the root and stump of the Piper Methysticum plant, a close relative of Black Pepper. The name Kava comes from the people of Vanuatu, rumored to be the historical guardians and agricultural architects of the plant.  Vanuatu is a set of islands roughly 750 miles west of Fiji.

Kava has a rich cultural history in the South Pacific and islanders have been consuming the earthy elixir for over 3000 years.  Kava is known by many names reflecting local languages and regional areas of consumption and cultivation. In Hawaii kava is referred to it as ‘awa, or ‘awa-‘awa, while Samoans referrer to it as ava, and in Fiji the locals call it yaqona.

Depending on where you wash ashore Kava may be consumed for a variety reasons including: ceremonial, recreational, spiritual or medicinal.  Regardless of what you call it, the plant and beverage has brought drinkers together for eons enforcing cultural foundations and building social relations on peace and friendship.
