Bulleit Bourbon Kentucky Derby Party

May 6, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Experience the Kentucky Derby like a Southerner: eating American BBQ and sipping a bourbon cocktail.

On Saturday, May 6th between 4 pm and 7 pm, we are turning our bar area into Churchill Downs to celebrate the Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.

We’ll be serving a special menu of appetizers that include:

  • Crab Cakes
  • BBQ Bourbon Shrimp
  • Deviled Eggs with Pickled Asparagus
  • City Ham on Tiny Biscuits
  • Cheese and Crackers
  • Special Dessert, Derby Pies.

In addition to lots of different juleps, our bar team will be mixing up the “Day-Drinking Sweet Tea” from Andy’s new book Pitmaster. There will be bourbon and American whiskey galore thanks to our 150+ bourbons and whiskeys.

The best part is that our friends over at Bulleit Frontier Whiskey will be here; handing out prizes, buying drinks and making sure that everyone has a good time.

Who makes the area’s best mint julep? We’re going to find out during the Bulleit Julep Derby: a live bartender competition featuring 4 bartenders from area restaurants!

Contests and prizes for the Best Gussied Up Couple and Best Bonnet. 

Our nine TV’s will be showing all the live action from the day so you won’t miss a thing. Weather-permitting, our patio will be open with viewing capability of seeing the races from there.

Only $5 gets you into the party. Book your spot at the Derby Party today!
