Kava the new mocktail

What is kava? This heartwarming tea comes from the root of the Polynesian shrub, Piper Methysticum (meaning enchanting pepper). Known as “kava kava” this traditional plant medicine has been used by native tribes for nearly 3000 years to achieve a “higher level of consciousness” or gather as a community. Kava is rapidly replacing traditional social beverages as a healthier alternative. We are proud to be the 1st kava bar in Arizona and carry only the highest quality, domestically laboratory-tested products.

Used to promote psychological and physiological relaxation there are over 105 strains. In the Pacific islands, like Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and Hawaii, kava drinking is an integral part of social and ceremonial occasions. At Lacuna Kava Bar, we have brought this traditional plant medicine into the mainstream social scene with a modern and trendsetting botanical mocktail menu featuring a variety of plant-based wellness drinks and products.

About Chase

Chase Brendle is the founder of Lacuna Kava Bar with locations in Phoenix and Sedona. Lacuna is creating connection and communication through the new and trending botanical medium in undeveloped markets.

As a healthy and conscious community space, Lacuna bridges the gap between mainstream hospitality and the new paradigm of living life by design rather than through an escapist mentality and behavior.

Prior to opening Lacuna Kava Bar, Chase Brendle had generated his extensive experience in a startup, community based, emerging market business. He started Club One CrossFit as a 10% partner, General Manager, and Head Trainer, and in 3 years purchased 100% of the company from his investors, and rebranded as Club One Athletics.

By 2018 Chase Brendle had observed the plateauing trends across the CrossFit and rebranded as Club One Athletics. Ultimately the business was profitably sold and is still now being run by one of its original members as Fit Fort Lauderdale.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Sports Exercise Science from the University of Florida. Chase is a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Coach and ISSA Certified Personal Trainer. He holds a gold medal for gymnastics and has a wrestling background.
