The Purple Lotus is now on the waterfront in downtown West Palm. The new address is 255 Evernia. The space is awesome and has a very chill vibe. I think it's the best Kava bar in South Florida!

After walking all day on South Beach. The Kimono was the perfect pick me up! It tastes like dirt but within a quick 15/30 min your feeling lively and relaxed at the same time. Worth the $13 to feel uplifted and friendly.

The products are terrible but the vibe and people are great. aside from the occasional stream of junkies and dirtbags the atmosphere is great the music is relaxing and the temperature perfect. The Kava could be better and the prices could be lower.

I tried Kava for my birthday with a friend at the West Palm Beach location. The bartender was very nice and informative. My friend refused to drink it b/c she didn't like the "earthy" taste. I guess she was expecting some kind of sweet drink....More
