About Kava

WHAT IS KAVA?

We are asked this kava question about 100 times a week at minimum. Kava is many things to many people. First and foremost kava is a plant from the south Pacific. The latinDrink Kava at the Nakava in Boca Raton name for kava is Piper methysticum. This literally translates into "intoxicating pepper" in our English language. The scientific name Piper may sound familiar to you, especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The Piper plants are in the pepper family. One of the close relatives of the kava plant is the common spice Piper nigrum, or what we would call black pepper at the dinner table.

The word kava is also the name of the intoxicating drink made from the roots of the kava plant. Did we say intoxicating? Well, a more accurate description of the effects of the kava drink would be euphoric. Kava has been consumed by the indigenous people of the south Pacific for thousands of years. Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, and Papua New Guinea are some of the countries where kava is grown and used traditionally. Kava is also consumed in Hawaiii, right here in our back yard.

WHAT IS A KAVA BAR?

If you have never been to a kava bar before you are probably wondering what a kava bar is exactly. Right? Well you came to the right place then. A kava bar can also be called a kava lounge but more from the aspect of a verb and not a noun from the traditional definition of lounge because kava bars do not serve cocktails. However, customers that visit a kava bar tend to lounge around after drinking kava due to the relaxing effects that are imparted by it. The term kava lounge can add a new definition to the word lounge in the dictionary for sure.We will create a whole new page to discuss the kava lounge topic but for now we came here to learn about what a kava bar is exactly.

We will give a short lesson on the existance and history of kava bars. It will only be short because the kava bar industry has not existed for very long compared to some other business models.

Kava Bar Origination

The concept of a kava bar surely originated in Vanuatu.Pacific island kava drinkers historically emphasize the value of kava by consuming it at special times or in special places. These special places are "marked socially as non-ordinary spaces. The desire to ritualize kava consumption by drinking in special places is evidenced by the popularity of kava bars in such towns as Port Vila or Kolonia. The kava bar partly reconstitutes within an urban environment the more traditional extraordinary places where people meet to consume the drug". (Lebot, 1997)
