Between the plush red carpet, “best dressed” fashion hits, and a roster of the brightest names in show business, the Academy Awards are, without a doubt, the biggest night in Hollywood. While most Oscars parties will have a guest list tighter than a Jolie-Pitt wedding, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little glitz and glam of your own. So ditch your couch on Sunday, and head to these haute hotels showing the ceremony, along with nominee-inspired cocktails and meals.
The Beverly Hills Hotel
9641 Sunset Blvd
The hotel’s A-list clientele will most likely be at the ceremony, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wine and dine like a star. Head to The Polo Lounge for bites and drinks inspired by the crème of the crop.
The SLS Hotel
465 S La Cienega Blvd
Dine at The Bazaar where chef Jose Andres has created the Golden Trio to take center stage all Oscars weekend long. The trio consists of the restaurant’s signature philly cheesesteak, chocolate bonbons from the Patisserie and a sherry-gin cocktail with gold dust.
6610 Palos Verdes Dr
What better way to celebrate in style than in one of the most beautiful seaside spots in the city. Mar’sel inside the resort pays tribute to Best Picture nominees with dishes like caviar, crème fraiche and chives, and a 007-inspired Vesper cocktail.
7000 Hollywood Blvd.
Take in Oscars history and head to the first site that ever hosted the ceremony in 1929. The iconic hotel will host a viewing party with a six-course menu and cocktails, as well as a showing of the ceremony on four big screens throughout the lobby.
8401 Sunset Blvd
Just because you won’t be walking the Dolby Theatre red carpet doesn’t mean you can’t don your best evening wear. Black tie attire is required for the hotel’s Oscars after party held at its rooftop ballroom and pool deck.
