Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 9/24/21 – Last week,  La Boheme, the iconic West Hollywood Restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard, opened its doors to Bergman’s Luxury Lounge & Luncheon — in celebration of the 73rdAnnual  Emmy® Awards. Over 100 of Hollywood’s finest turned out to celebrate and honor the television industry’s Emmy® Nominated actors, former Emmy® winners, presenters, stylists, and industry VIPS.


“Sometimes, the beauty of the world, is more than I can bear,” acknowledged Bergman. “So, when it gets to be too much, it’s time to do something about it. That’s when I decided to move forward with our 11th Annual Luxury Lounge & Luncheon. We scouted out an outdoor venue for a comfort level and then approached our exclusive sponsors to participate. It was surprising to learn how many vendors were ready to ‘get out and be seen.’  It was like old times. The big smiles and hugs said it all!”

This highly anticipated invitation-only event, hosted by Precious Vodka and presented by The Abingdon Co., showcased an incredible array of fashion for him and her, including couture gowns, bespoke tuxedos & suits, men & women’s casual wear, fancy footwear, fabulous timepieces, vegan leather bags, the finest in beauty, skin and hair care, outrageous CBD products, stunning jewelry collections, gorgeous accessories, health foods, scented candles, La Boheme signature cuisine, Bulgarian vodka,  organic Tequila, delectable gourmet sweets and much more.
