It’s that time of year when Hollywood is abuzz with the Academy Awards, so why shouldn’t Salt Lake City get in on the Oscar frenzy?  Bambara and their bar, The Vault, are featuring Oscar-themed cocktails based on the Academy Award nominations for Best Picture.

Each drink order counts as a vote for the corresponding movie and all the votes will be tallied until February 28, 2014, in time to see if Bambara can predict the Oscar winner on March 2.  The cocktails range in price from $10-15 with leading stars from tequila to bourbon.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" with Hendrick's Gin, Smirnoff Vodka, St. Germaine Elderflower Liqueur and Orange Zest.

Bambara and The Vault are perfect places to start your evening, especially if you’re headed across the street to Capitol Theater for a show.  Ballet West is performing Sleeping Beauty there until February 16, then the theater switches from ballet to Broadway with Bring It On: The Musical, running February 25-March 2.
