Te Mana Kava Bar is a very unique and relaxing destination that opened in West Palm Beach in 2010. The bar specializes in a very unusual drink: kava. Kava comes from the roots of pepper plants and produces a sedative and calming effect while keeping mental clarity. Many relate its effects to that of alcohol, but without any of the negative side effects. There are a variety of different strains of kava that range in potency, but they are regulated to ensure no one receives something too strong or too weak. Te Mana serves the drink as a great stress and anxiety reliever that keeps its customers clear minded and relaxed. Kava is traditionally served in a coconut shell, but for sanitary reasons Te Mana cannot serve it this way. Instead, they have plastic shells that the drinks are served in, and if oneís not enough, Kava also comes in a double or triple portion. It is also served with a pineapple or orange slice as a cleanser because Kava has a very strong, earthy taste that can take time to get adjusted to. In addition to kava, they also sell herbal teas that deliver calming properties as well. The atmosphere of the bar is very laid back, warm, and friendly. It is a very communal space where everyone gets to know each other while relaxing and enjoying their time. The staff is very personable and enjoys serving and conversing with their customers. They even organize different events and activities for their loyal customers that bring them closer together. For example, Te Mana has their own softball team that plays together every Tuesday night! The dÈcor inside the bar is very tropical and surf themed with long boards and tiki decorations adorning the walls. Te Mana is also dog friendly, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend along to enjoy the laid back environment too! Te Mana is open seven days a week from noon to 2:00 AM, so the next time youíre in town be sure to stop by for an unique drink and experience ñ itís definitely something you wonít forget!
