The first location, The Kava Bar, can be found at 4376 E. Speedway Blvd. and has been serving up its unique beverages since late 2019.
The owners of The Kava Bar, Whitney and Kevin Marx, met in Asheville, North Carolina — where they discovered their love for Kava. Whitney was born and raised in Tucson and was running a restaurant in Asheville before moving back to Tucson and opening up The Kava Bar.
The Kava Den will be located at 67 E. Pennington St. and the first location, The Kava Bar, is located at 4376 E. Speedway Blvd. For more information and to keep up on the latest, visit tucsonkavabar.com or follow The Kava Bar on Instagram.
