Once again, the Vault at Hotel Monaco invites you to participate in the Academy Awards by casting your vote for Best Picture–by ordering a cocktail.
Bartenders at Bambara have concocted a specialty drink to represent each of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture. Bartender Austin Craig says, "Last year I was inspired bythe films' locations, but this year's are more about the characters. I imagined...what each character would most likely order in the Vault."
