An elixir of Pacific Islanders for thousands of years, kava root has been brewed and sipped for its soothing effects, which have been known to ease anxiety and insomnia, while producing a feeling of ease and relaxation. Those loyal to its charms, drink it as a safe alternative to alcohol, touting its abilities to liven moods without impairment. At SquareRüt Kava Bar, kava is prepared and served in the traditional way—out of coconut shells. Available in a variety of strains, the menu also features the option to add different flavors, and a short list of snacks to enjoy alongside ceremonial bowls.
