Green Turtle Kava Bar
156 State Road 312, Suite 172 • US 1 South & Vicinity
What is kava, you ask? Well, St. Augustine is soon to experience this import from the South Pacific, as the city's first and only Kava Bar is about to open! Derived from plants native to the Pacific Islands, kava is usually consumed as a beverage or extract. It is non-alcoholic and has relaxing, euphoriant and calming properties. In addition to Kava, the menu features a variety of botanical teas and a light menu of snacks. Owner Maggie Cornelison explains that one of the goals of the Green Turtle is to create a welcoming atmosphere that promotes a sense of connectedness and community. "We are working to make the Green Turtle a place where a person can slow down and just take a moment," she explains. To that end, the space will feature cozy seating, warm and friendly vibes and bar seating for mingling. Enjoy weekly specials, ladies nights and live music from a variety of local artists. Open Mon.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri. and Sat. 10 a.m.-midnight; Sun. 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
