Editorial Review of
Although many San Diegans might object, there’s more out there than our seafront city, and Little Italy’s global-minded Kava Lounge is here to bring world cultures into local consciousnesses. The secluded venue regularly hosts live entertainment such as renowned international DJs, bands playing world beats, and dynamic dance performances. The bar serves its libations in unique glasses and mugs, mostly flea market and thrift store finds. Most of the international wines and beers available are organic, free of artificial ingredients and other poisons. Namesake shots of kava kava root mulled with apple cider numb the tongue, and sooth stress’s serrated edges. The crowd is fashionably funky, and admirably diverse.
