Oscars: Ultimate Seattle Party Guide

Oscar Sunday is right around the corner (Feb. 9, 2020) and if you want to trade in those sweatpants for a suit or dress, there are multiple watch parties happening around the city where you can pretend you're in LA (without actually having to be in LA, thank gosh). Also - if you want to keep those sweatpants on and watch from the couch, do you. Festivities start at 5 p.m. PST, on KOMO 4.

Rhein Haus Seattle & Tacoma

Both the Seattle and Tacoma locations of Rhein Haus will be hosting Oscar parties from 4 - 10 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9. The full ceremony will be up on the big screens, and they'll have ballots, complimentary popcorn, games, balloons and decorations to boot. The Seattle location will even have a full on red carpet and professional photographer to treat you like the local celeb you are, while Tacoma will have a themed photo booth.
