2021 EMMY Gift Lounge by HempHera & GBK Brand Bar’s Luxury and Wellness Lounge with Oscar & Emmy Winning Actress Viola Davis


 Some of the Biggest A-List Talent of Television and More, attended “live & in person” The 2021 EMMY Gift Lounge by GBK Brand Bar & HempHera Luxury Lounge at the LaPeer Hotel in West Hollywood over 2 luxury-filled days. Each guest attending was given a rapid Covid-19 test before entering; in addition, the event organizers carefully scheduled all attendees to ensure compliance with Covid-19 guidelines.

This year’s celebrity guests were given up to 50K worth of the year’s hottest gifts and trips: 4 different vacations, including a 4 night Stay in a Villa at SailRock Resort in Turks and Caicos for Nominees, Dominican Republic, FIJI, and local a Vacay, Diamonds from Yuvika, Custom Pendant from Jonathan Shultz, Luxury Dog clothes from Moshiqa, Skin Care, CBD Products, Custom Dresses, James Peter Henry One-of-a-kind Sweaters, Dinner for 12 at your home, and numerous other surprises.

This lounge was a great opportunity for clients to mingle with this year’s Emmy nominees, presenters, and other A-List talents.  A tantalizing assortment of food and drinks was served from the moment the celebrities and press walked in the door with the house DJ spinning the best music.

The highlight of the day was when we meet Actress Viola Davis – who is a 2 time Oscar winner, 2 time Tony Award Winner, and Primetime Emmy Award Winner. The New York Times ranked Davis ninth on its list of “The 25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century” and she is the youngest actor and the first African-American to achieve the “Triple Crown of Acting” ! In the below photo she poses for a photo with our TV show host Margie Rey: 


For over 700 years, “l’aygue ardente” has distinguished itself as one of the world’s most noble eaux-de-vie. Best known under the name Armagnac, this brandy rapidly became identified for having 40 virtues due to research conducted in 1310 by Maître Vital du Four. As Cardinal du Four, he was recognized as a great intellect, accomplished theologian, man of science, whom published a celebrated book about his remarkable discoveries, “To keep your health and stay on top form.” The original texts have been preciously guarded in The Vatican library in Rome since the 14th century.
This work bestowed an exceptional destiny for the Armagnac region of France. Cardinal du Four Armagnac, 21 Rébellion is a harmonious blend of choice vintages aged in 400-liter French oak casks from the forests of Monlezun and Limousin. The youngest and more vibrant eau-de-vie has been aged for a minimum of 21 years with the oldest Armagnac in the blend dating back from 1976 vintage – 43 years old. Produced from the highest quality grapes of Ugni Blanc, Baco, Folle Blanche and Colombard that are harvested in the Bas-Armagnac and Ténarèze terroirs, these fine eaux-de-vie are distilled from a traditional continuous copper still called the “Alambic Armagnacais.” With this honorary creation, we pay tribute to the Cardinal as we continue to ensure that the immortal spirit of Armagnac flourishes. Tasting Experience: Soft and brilliant amber brown color. Floral aromas of jasmine and iris followed by gingerbread spices like nutmeg and cinnamon intertwined with dried fig, caramelized apples and toasted wood vanilla flavors. Long lingering finish with notes of cacao beans and salted caramel. Cardinal du Four Armagnac, 21 Rébellion combines complexity and power with elegance …
