On Saturday, May 6, at 5:45 p.m., the 147th edition of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” (aka the Run for the Roses), will take place in Louisville. If you can’t make it to Churchill Downs in time for the big race, you can still celebrate the Derby in style by attending the Derby Soirée at ROOF at Park South, in Kips Bay.
This event will be a partnership between the rooftop, Woodford Reserve Bourbon, and Herradura Tequila, assuring that attendees have access to a broad selection of tasty beverages, including the classic mint julep. Derby-inspired bites will also be provided, as will exciting giveaways, including gift cards to Sweetbriar, a sister restaurant.
To top it off, the rooftop will host a friendly competition for the best outfit, so be sure to wear your most eye-catching hat, or “fascinator,” as its known in Churchill Downs circles. (Event sponsor Woodford Reserve has some timely advice on how to select one.)
The event will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with tickets available at Resy for $55.
ROOF at Park South, 125 East 27th Street, 212-204-5222.
