Although this bi-level bar is televising the Academy Awards on both floors, the real party is upstairs in the Professor’s Loft. There, guests choose from a menu of Hollywood-themed cocktails like the Queeny and the Last King of Scotchland and play Oscar bingo (each square gets a nominated actor or a ceremonial cliché, like tripping up the stairs). If you're hoping for big prizes and not just free shots and Oscar Meyer pigs-in-a-blanket, you're going to have to participate in the ballot competition: The grand-prize winner gets either a case of Champagne or a private tour of the Saturday Night Live studios.
