“a relaxing alternative to the club scene”

Tired of the same old bar and club scene? Looking for a more mature social gathering place that doesn't revolve around alcohol in excess and high energy music? We were too, and since we couldn't find one, we've built a healthier, more relaxing alternative to the Sacramento bar and club scene: The Root of Happiness Kava Bar. Kava Kava is a relaxing beverage that has been enjoyed in the South Pacific Islands for over 3,000 years! Known as the "intoxicating pepper", it promotes positive mood and tames the day to day stresses of life while also promoting physical relaxation. This unique combination makes it a perfect alternative to other more damaging social lubricants. With a 3,000 year track record of use among some of the happiest, most relaxed, and friendliest people in the world, we have decided to bring Kava Culture to Northern California! Come on in and enjoy a shell and see what the buzz is about!

I'd heard about kava from a friend of mine so I decided to go a bit out of my way to give it a try. This is a great spot to chill out after a long day of driving or anything really. Very mellow, in no way pretentious or grating. Just nice people, strong kava, good times.

These guys were SUPER cool. We were on the road ALL day from San Diego and were dead tired. We come into this place and were immediately hit with a relaxed vibe, and friendly folk. We have kava bars down in SD, but this place was different. It was an immediate feeling of being part of their family. The Kava, whoa. Way stronger than what we have down in SD, smooth, not gritty like the places we had been to. We stayed for a few hours, drank with the owners, who were very nice people, and hit the road.

In retrospect, this was one of the best places on our 7 day So Cal to BC trip. Stop in and tell em Jon and Angela from SD sent ya.

We came in here on our way to burning man and have to say, this place ROCKS! The staff is friendly, the kava is AMAZING, and the vibe is super chill. We will be making our way back here next year on our way up to the burn. I highly recommend this being a place on your map if you're passing through town. Its a unique experience that you will remember.
