    "High Energy Club in the Historic Shockoe District"

    -Mark M. (Williamsburg, VA)

    "Kai’s a solid spot for dancing and drinks. It won my vote from the get-go when my friends and I strolled on by on our way to dinner."

    -Jamie D. (Richmond, VA)

    "The bouncers at Kai were cool and down to earth. The bartenders were nice and attentive. The drinks were tasty. The Red Bull bombs were on special that night. The DJ played a nice mixture of music. I really enjoyed the music at Kai.There’s a nice size dance floor, if dancing is your thing."

    -Dominic B. (Richmond, VA)

    "This is a cool place the look is new to the area…. I have had great service from the whole staff… Best place I have ever been had great time."

    - Richard A. (Chester, VA)

    "The place is Kai, set in the former Taphouse Grill at 1212 E. Cary St. The project is the latest for longtime Sam Miller’s operator Tom Leppert and technology designer Loring Wiggins. Kai has a 32-foot bar back that’s a seamless flat screen, ready to show whatever images a crowd might want to see — themselves, a game, video from the club the night before, or the default bubbles that drive home the water theme represented by the name Kai, which means ocean in Hawaiian." -Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
