Here is a great place to start if you have questions before your visit.

You can find the hours and our posting about holidays and such on the pages for our individual branches: Berkeley  Santa Cruz, and Oakland.
Generally we’re open from 12PM to 12AM every day. 

Although kava is not regulated by any state or federal law (again, think coffee – but ‘melo’), we ask that our patrons be 18 years or older if they’re coming in without a parent.

Yes, every Monday night from 9PM-12AM (8PM in Santa Cruz). Sign ups are IN PERSON only, and start about an hour before the show. More information can be found by visiting or contacting the location.


Yes we do – welcome to the 21st century in the Bay Area! If you are currently going to place that doesn’t offer free WiFi, please stop, and come here instead.

Sure! As long as they’re well behaved, friendly, and not too loud. We only ask that you don’t allow them on the couch please!


We sure do! Both the powder, and bags – as well as the already made in a Growler (68 oz.) for your party needs. Heck, we even sell the coconut shells. The quantities are 1/4 lbs, 1/2 lbs, and 1 lbs.

No, but we’re happy to have you bring something in from somewhere else and enjoy it here. Just remember: sharing is caring!


No, this is really more like a bar/lounge feel. First come first serve! We will consider large parties (birthdays, corporate events, etc.) with a deposit – please call us at (510)900-9316 or better still email us at info@melomelokavabar.com

Please call us at (510)900-9316 or better still email us at info@melomelokavabar.com or visit one of our locations and our bulatenders will be more than happy to answer your questions.
