Full of interesting people involved in various projects. Nice place to strike up a conversation and get a bar vibe minus the alcohol. For an introvert who doesn't drink, it's a good way to relax in the company of people who have something to say.

So based on my everyday encounters I am going to assume, that most of you reading this are not too familiar with Kava or Kratum. When I go here I usually order Kratum. For those of you "not in the know" the alkaloids of this...More

Krave is my new favorite place in Chapel Hill. I like it just as much for the ambiance and people as for the products themselves. Of course the kava, ketum, and yerba mate are incredible--even if you could find those products elsewhere, they wouldn't be...More

The wait for our local kava bar was definitely worth it! There is no better place to sit, relax, and just plain enjoy being in Carrboro/Chapel Hill. The amazing staff attracts a friendly clientele. Make sure you check out the bathroom!

I'm crushing on the Krush. Great chill environment. Music matches the chill environment, too. Awesome decor. I usually don't mention this; but, even the bathroom is cool - the bathroom is, like, TikiHut inspired.

By far the chillest place in the chapel hill/carrboro area. The staff are very pleasant and informative. Good music too.

I come and study here nearly every day. The atmosphere is very chill, the servers are very friendly, and the drinks are pretty cool. I'd recommend starting off with the Krush, although I mostly just drink the tea nowadays.

You have not lived until you have visited. Please come and try the wonderful non-alcoholic beverages the fine people here have to offer. Expect friendly knowledgeable patrons quietly Wi-Fi ing away in peace. The Krave is an intergalactic place. Think Star Wars cantina, Luke. Don't...More
