There aren’t too many London spots where you can watch the Academy Awards. After all, it’s happening really late on Sunday night and we’ve all got jobs to go to. For those who’ve really fallen under the Oscars spell – the true hardcore – a night of cocktails and vicarious glamour awaits at Kensington’s K Bar.
There’s a salver’s worth of specially concocted Oscar-themed cocktails on offer, including the El Jimador Tequila-based ‘Roma’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, a heady-sounding mix of Jameson Select Reserve whisky and ginger liqueur. The decadent gin and prosecco-based ‘A Star is Born’ has learnt nothing from the themes of the movie.
Your £25 ticket entitles you to one of these beauties, as well as access to the live viewing party, where you’ll be able to cheer, applaud and occasionally boo as a host of filmmaking worthies collect their prizes. An array of small plates and big wines will also be available to help fend off any late-night weariness.
Who are the likely winners (and losers) this Sunday? Head to our big Oscars hub for everything you need to know about the ninety-first Academy Awards.
