Sovereign Kava is Asheville’s first and only Kava Bar. We serve Traditional Kava, made by hand just the way its been made in the South Pacific ceremonially for centuries. We also serve Maeng Da tea (among other varieties), kava cocktails, CBD edibles and tinctures, Buchi Kombucha, vegan snacks, and much more. Sovereign Kava is a relaxing social environment where people from all walks of life are welcome to come, chill out and catch a natural buzz. Come help us do our part to keep Asheville weird (and fun). Have no idea what any of this stuff is? That’s OK, our world-class kava-tenders will be happy to explain.

Mondays bring the variety with Trivia on the first Mondays and a free seminar or class on the second.  Delaney Storm Brown hosts our Stage Fright Open Mic on the third Mondays for anyone who is too shy for our big open mic.  The last Monday of the month will showcase a local female musician! We’ve got something for everyone!

Each and every Tuesday, we provide a space for local musicians to jam with one another at our very own Open Jam from 8-11PM! Sign up sheet available on a first come, first serve basis.

Don’t miss “Poetry Open Mic Asheville,” Asheville’s longest-running (and, ahem, best) open mic every Wednesday evening. Sign-ups are at 7:30 p.m. Original songs and all forms of artistic expression are welcome.

Be sure to check out our Ping-Pong Lounge, and prepare yourself to get smoked in our monthly tournament (2nd Thursday of each month, 8 p.m.).

A live celebration of the Grateful Dead’s music goes down on the first Thursday of each month.

There is live music every Friday and Saturday night (never a cover at the door). Monthly events include Comedy Night with Justin Blackburn on the 3rd Friday and Jason Moore on the last Friday with Shane Parish on the last Saturday.

One Sunday a month, we feature Reggae Sundays with Zion Rose, with various food pop ups from 4-7pm. See Calendar for specific dates!

We are located at 268 Biltmore Ave., halfway up the hill between McCormick Field and Mission Hospital. Parking includes our lot during business hours and Smile Starters after 5pm.  

Great ambiance indoors as well as outdoor seating.
