Getting Your Oscar Party on, New York Style

As Hollywood makes final preparations for Sunday’s Oscars, many New Yorkers are solidifying their plans for the big night as well.

If an Oscar party is your idea of fun, but don’t have one to attend, consider yourself invited.

Comic Murray Hill hosts a full Oscar night celebration, complete with the ubiquitous ballots and prizes. Separating this party, which starts at 7 p.m., from the Oscar party “home edition” are several guest comedians. It takes place at Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street between East 4th Street and Astor Place. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

There’s another Oscar viewing option at Crash Mansion, 199 Bowery.

It’s the Alt.Oscars Party, featuring DJs spinning music during commercials and after the awards. For this shindig, no one under 21 is permitted. Tickets are $10 in advance, $20 at the door.

Another possibility–the upscale Refinery29 at W Union Square. Refinery29 is making its first Oscar Party, which includes a champagne toast and gourment concession-stand treats.

Tickets are $40 per person.
