Highlight Story

As the red carpet for the 84th Academy Awards rolls out on Sunday, city nightclubs and restaurants will hold Oscar-themed parties, cashing in on the popularity of the coveted awards. Jynxxx, a nightclub in Nehru Place, will host an ‘Oscar Hollywood’ party on Sunday. The highlight of the event will be a red carpet walk followed by competitions such as best-dressed and best dancing couple. The winners will be felicitated with a replica of the original trophy. “There is a craze for Oscars and people want to experience stardom even if it is in a nightclub. They will come dressed as if they are attending the real show,” says Mohit Jain of Jynxxx. Quantum, a nightclub in Noida, will host a pre-Oscar bash today, where all Oscar winning songs will be played.

“With AR Rahman winning an Oscar, the popularity of the Academy Awards has soared. In this bash, our in-house DJ will play 20 minute-tracks such as Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire, that have an Oscar connection,” says Suruchi Dutta of Quantum.

Apart from parties, many nightclubs will also offer special deals and discounts. At 1 Boulevard, the DJ will play different remixed versions of the song, Jai Ho. One also gets to predict the Oscar winners and win discounts. At Xes Café in Saket, a special discount will be given 6.30pm onwards to those who dress up as Hollywood celebrities.
