Did your Oscars invite get lost in the mail? That’s too bad, but who needs Hollywood anyway? Watch the awards at one of these local shindigs instead.

The Windsor
234 W. Fourth St., 212-206-1208 and 420 Park Ave., 646-380-5301
The sports bars will change the channels so you can watch the Oscars instead. The red carpet coverage starts at 6 p.m. Sip a complimentary glass of prosecco and cast your vote for the winners on the provided ballot.

132 Fourth Ave., 212-432-1324
Get there at 7 and stay for the whole thing — you can win prizes if you get the most correct predictions of the night’s outcomes. The regular menu will be served, but in addition to that they’ve come up with best-picture-nominated cocktails. How about a Green Jasmine or a Dallas Imbiber’s Club? Matthew McConaughey would be proud!

121 Fulton Street
121 Fulton St., 646-545-6647
There are 40 flat-screens, so you won’t be hunched over your neighbor to catch the speeches. Guests get a free glass of Champagne and a chance at the Oscar pool, with the top three winners scoring a gift card to the restaurant.

Hudson Common
356 W 58th St., 212-554-6217
“I would like another American Hustle Vodka Tonic” is what we envision you’ll say the most here. Win prizes if you predict the right winners, and party like a movie star to the tunes of DJ Vikas.

Brooklyn Winery
213 N. Eighth St., 347-763-1506
Brooklyn Winery is making Oscar night special with The Paparazzi. Don’t worry; it’s not the actual paparazzi, just a gin and sparkling wine cocktail with St-Germain. Arrive at 7 — it’s first come, first served.

508 W. 42nd St., 212-868-2999
You may not be walking the red carpet, but you should still don your finest for this party, which is giving out best-dressed prizes. If you’re not the best dresser, are you the best guesser? Predict the winners and get prizes. There’s also free popcorn and cheeky Oscar trophies.

And one party you definitely can’t go to


60 E 65th St., 212-288-0033
This is the only official Oscar party on the East Coast, and unfortunately you’re not invited. Sorry! It’s just for the local members of the Academy. Maybe you can get a quick glimpse of the A-listers as Daniel rolls out the red carpet for this exclusive event.
