The “greatest two minutes in sports” is upstaged by a few things every year: the hats, the outfits, and the cocktails. In honor of the Kentucky Derby on May 5, City Tap House will be transforming its firepit-lined patio into a rosé garden for dapper gentlemen and refined belles to don their Derby finest. From seersucker suits to feathered toppers, the best dressed will score a $100 gift card to be used on a future visit.
With live music, swag from their event partners and chatter about the best thoroughbreds, the bar will be shaking up cocktails worthy of a trifecta win: Frozen Woodford Reserve Mint Juleps ($12); Sweet Peach Teawith Maker’s Mark, peach puree, lemongrass syrup and iced tea ($12); and, Angry Orchard’s Rosé cider – to be consumed all day. (And if Cinco de Mayo is more your thing, City Tap has you covered with their Tecate & Picante special, a bucket of five Tecates paired with tortilla chips and ensalata picante salsa for $20.)
Complimentary admission; specialty drinks available at a la carte pricing.
May the best hat (and horse) win!
