FAQs

Are you open?

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

Our Oakland branch is in progress but is not yet ready to BULA. 

Do you have an age limit?

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.

Do you have an Open-Mic? Where can I sign up?

Yes we do! Every Monday night from 9PM-12AM. More info and sign-ups are generally handled on our Facebook page.

Do you have Wifi?

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.

Can I bring my dog?

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!

Do we sell powdered kava to make at home?

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.

Do you guys serve food?

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

Do you take reservations?

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 [email protected]
