On the latest episode of Spectrum News 1’s prime-time series LA Stories, anchor and host Giselle Fernandez meets the filipina phenoms behind the new chic Los Angeles gin joint, Genever.
The three women launched their endeavor through Kickstarter and their success is disrupting the SoCal bar scene and inspiring women across the Southland. Genever, located in historic Filipinotown, is one of only a handful of bars in L.A. that is female owned and operated…and that’s shaking up the male dominated industry.
LA Magazine named the three UCLA grads among the most powerful women in Los Angeles who are making the city a better place. The longtime friends spoke with Giselle about their unusual paths to entrepreneurship, the shock of losing a child due to stillbirth, the power of celebrating their community and heritage, and well as the important of women supporting women.
