Pao users are doers who just want to find and share the coolest spots as they experience the world.
Los Angeles is one of the best cities in the world for discovering hidden gem experiences since the culture is based around constantly trying the “next best thing”. In the trendy seaside neighborhood of Venice Beach you can find a couple amazing Black owned businesses but just around the corner in Inglewood and Culver City there are hundreds more to discover too. Pao intern Taylor Hanson set off to find some of these Black owned businesses in both areas last week and boy oh boy do we love what she found!

The Bay Area’s food and beverage scene is pretty out of this world. With beautiful upscale restaurants to flavorful hole in the walls, specialty bakeries and cute cafes, the Bay pulls in people from near and far places. Many of these #paoworthy foodie spots are owned and run by African American entrepreneurs who are unfortunately taking the biggest hit during this Covid-19 crisis. In an effort to support the Black food and beverage community, Pao sent three top users, Julia Myall, Emma Myall and Anna Mccarthy, out on a quest to find and support some of the tastiest Black Owned Businesses in their area. Scroll down to see their finds in Berkeley, Concord, Hayward, Lafayette, and San Francisco!
