Free wine and gifts for pro-athletes on this Hollywood rooftop, ahead of the big award show.

The annual ESPY awards are being in held in Los Angeles on Wednesday and sightings of professional athletes are already popping up in hotels across West Hollywood. Including the rooftop of La Peer Hotel on Tuesday afternoon, home of the GBK luxury gifting suite.

Stanley Cup Champions, Robby Fabbri and Jordan Binnington from the NHL's St. Louis Blues, rubbed shoulders with two-time NBA Champion and former Laker, Norm Nixon, as they tried on IFG Fit workout clothing that promises to help athletes with their posture. 

Professional golfer Anna DePalma tried on Swarovski-studded 1MORE headphones before grabbing a glass of rosé and practicing her swing with GELSTX - a training tool for hockey players and golfers. 

And NFL player Ronnie Hillman, from the Denver Broncos, grabbed a mallet and smashed a football-shaped chocolate cake as a small crowd cheered, and rainbow-colored candy spilled out. The customized cake display was from LA-based bakery, Smash Cakes (mallet included with cake purchase.)

Aliya Jasmine will be on the red carpet Wednesday as your favorite athletes arrive to the award show, be sure to follow us LIVE on social media @NBCLA.
