The perfect location was picked for the gift lounge— The Magic Castle! Located in the heart of Hollywood, The Magic Castle is famously known for it’s exclusive membership of magicians only. Celebrities got it good as they and selected guests were able to take a tour throughout the castle before the lounge. However, nobody was able to enter the castle until they revealed the secret password to a special bookshelf that opened entry to the castle’s private palace.
