frequently asked questions

An answer to all your kandle questions.

What is Viva Kandle Bar?

Viva Kandle Bar is a bar where you can create your own custom Kandles, room sprays and clamshells. We can guide you from start to finish with the help of our Kandle Experts and the clipboard-guide you will pick up when you first enter. You will walk into a bar filled with over 70+ individual scents that you can mix to create your own aroma. From there, you’ll pick your favorite Kandle Vessel(s) and take a seat at the bar for your Scent Specialist to guide you through the process.

Where are you located?

6101 N 23rd St. Suite I at Lark Plaza McAllen, TX 78504

Is there an age requirement?

You must be 8 years or older to participate at Viva Kandle Bar. We do not allow kids under 8 into our bar because participants will be around hot wax and mixing very potent fragrance oils.

What are the ingredients used for the candles?

At Viva Kandle Bar, our slogan is “We like our people how we like our Kandles, non-toxic”, therefore we use 100% soy wax. This allows your candle to burn cleaner, last longer and have a larger aroma throw. We use HTP wicks which are cotton allowing the Kandle to have a softer burn.

How long does the process take?

To customize your Kandle, it can generally take from 45 min to an hour depending how you quickly or slowly you’d like to move through the process. The Kandle will then need an hour to set before it can be taken home.  

If you want to create your custom Kandle and take it home the same day, please plan to visit 2 hours before the store closes.

What do I do while I wait?

As soon as you’ve finished creating your Kandle, you can sit and sip the rest of your beverages to enjoy the bar. You can visit our neighbors at ICED Cube for a refreshing snack or have a delicious bite to eat at San Miguelito’s next door.

Are there any food options?

Currently we do not have any food options but we do allow you to bring your own snacks and beverages. Some options that are close to us are Little Ceasears, Feldman’s, San Miguelitos & Iced Cube.

Is it BYOB?

Yes! We are a BYOB bar, so please feel free to bring your favorite beer/wine/champagne/seltzers only. All other outside beverages such as water, cokes, lemonades, etc. will be available for purchase.

Do you allow walk-ins?

We do accept walk-ins but we highly recommend making a reservation in advance so that you may get the full experience of having the time you need to choose your fragrances wisely and be catered to by Sahadi Kitchen.

Can I refill my vessel?

Yes! Once your Kandle has been burned completely, you can use hot water and some dish soap to get out any leftover wax and then bring it back to the bar for a refill. Refills allow you $5.00 off the regular price of the Kandle. 

**We will only refill non-damaged vessels that are still in good condition to be reused and must have been purchased from our bar.**
