Kentucky Derby at '21'

Kentucky Derby at '21'

For generations, racing enthusiasts have gathered at ‘21’. This year, we will be honoring this noble sport with a traditional Kentucky Derby party at Bar ‘21’. So, pick out your biggest hat and have your seersucker suit dry-cleaned, because this year, you will be celebrating the Derby ‘21’ style.

During our party leading up to the big race, guests will have the opportunity to sample 2 Woodford Reserve Mint Juleps (the official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby) as well as an assortment of Southern bar bites created by our own Chef Greeley. If you want to talk bourbon, a representative from Woodford Reserve will be on hand to share a few secrets.

Throughout the broadcast, guests will try their luck in picking the winning horses for ‘21’ and Woodford Reserve prizes. The Grand Prize of Dinner for Two at '21' will go to the best dressed in Derby attire.
