The Rise of Kava Bars in the US
In recent years, Kava Bars have become increasingly popular in different cities across the US, with Florida being the leader in the trend. Kava, a Western Pacific drink made from the ground root of the kava plant, is gaining popularity as a social drink. It is known for its ability to relax the body and mind, inducing a happy and relaxed mood, without the negative effects of a hangover the next morning. Some even claim that it can help with weight loss.
Kava bars are becoming a new social meeting ground, similar to coffee houses, with comfortable seating, relaxing lighting, and an abundance of conversation. Kava bartenders, or "kavatenders," are encouraged to socialize and educate patrons on the history and positive effects of Kava. The Fijian catchall phrase "Bula!" is often used to cheer when sharing drinks.
Kava is a plant native to the South Pacific islands, with most of it sourced from Fiji and Vanuatu. It has been traditionally used in ceremonies on the islands and as a drink to share with friends and neighbors. It is known to help reduce stress, muscle aches, and social anxiety. It also has a reverse tolerance, meaning the more often you consume it, the less you will need to feel the effects.
Happy Tea is from another plant called Mitragyna speciosa from Southeast Asia, is also used at most Kava Bars. The alkaloids in kratom leaves provide a mood lift, pain relief, and a sense of wellbeing, with different strains having unique characteristics. Many customers report kratom being beneficial for depression, anxiety, mood balance, and chronic pain, as well as a helpful tool in recovery from alcohol, opiates, and other substances.
