Bartenders Worth a Damn: Giaconda St. George
Gioconda St. George is a child of the sun. Born and raised in California, she’s an outgoing woman with a deep passion for the outdoors, music and dance. She spent 18 years as a professional dancer — the classy kind — before unexpected events necessitated a career shift. Luckily, Gioconda’s a remarkably adaptable woman. She rededicated her life to promoting the wellbeing of others through alternative means. She’s trained in non-western medicine, specializing in Chinese herbs and acupuncture. To round out her holistic healing, she’s also skilled in the arts of mixology. You can find her most nights administering spirits behind the bar at City Tavern in Culver City.
City Tavern is a gastropub with amazing beers, cocktails and cuisine. If you ever find yourself in Culver City, we highly recommend you stop by, say “Hi” to Gia and try her amazing Angel’s Envy cocktail. While it’s far from medicinal, it’s sure to lift your spirits, ease your troubles and bring a smile to your face. And if not, Gia certainly will.
