Eater's not going to lie — when it comes to watching the Academy Awards, your living room (with a big glass of red wine) is a perfectly valid viewing location. But for those looking for more of a social Oscars-watching experience, here are some options:

*Eno Wine Bar in Georgetown will be showing the Oscars live. Those who head there can enjoy $5 wines on tap, Oscars-themed chocolates and free popcorn. There's also an Oscars poll with prizes.

*Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse has three Oscars-themed cocktails to go along with its viewing party (customers can order food off the regular or bar menus). There's the Wild Turkey and blackberry-flavored Birdman ($16,) the Imitation Game mocktail with tarragon, and the Grand Budapest Hotel made with Grand Marnier ($16).

*Ventnor Sports Cafe is holding its annual Oscars Watch party with trivia starting at 6:30 p.m. They'll offer a special menu of Champagne cocktails and "Caviar Cuisine."

*Commissary's viewing party is scheduled for 4-11 p.m. Themed cocktails are priced $3-7, and there are food specials like "Boy with Apple Turnovers" and "Magic Bean and Beef Stew." They're also offering a  $49 prix fixe menu (reservations are required) and those who come can get one free Oscar cocktail and free popcorn. There will be a poll as well. Reservations are required.

*Helix Lounge has an Oscars happy hour with viewings of the red carpet walk and cocktails and snacks (5-11 p.m.). Menu items range from the Red Carpet Cosmo ($8) to beef sliders and bean quesadillas.

*More of a film buff than a restaurant buff? The DC Film Society's event is being held at the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse.

*Malmaison is hosting a viewing party ($35 in advance) with champagne, a bar menu and a charity component (some proceeds benefit the Washington Film Institute).
