Derby Day! Open at 3pm.
May 4 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Almost like watching from Churchill Downs, Jack Rose Dining Saloon will once again be Washington, DC’s premiere destination for Kentucky Derby festivities on Saturday, May 4 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. On the sunny rooftop terrace, guests and race fanatics are invited to don their finest derby attire at the bar’s 7 th Annual Kentucky Derby Celebration + Viewing Party, complete with mint juleps and derby punches, complimentary Southern bites, Kentucky bourbon flights, and a live viewing of the 2019 Run for the Roses.
For those looking to celebrate in proper Derby form, Jack Rose will offer drink specials on refreshing Mint Juleps ($9), Spiked Sweet Tea ($8) and Frozen Brown Derby’s ($10), along with whiskeys and Kentucky bourbon flights along with Complimentary Derby-inspired snacks.
And those looking forward to the big race (known as “the greatest two minutes in sports”) can watch alfresco on five large flat screen TVs located throughout the rooftop terrace and Tiki bars (race post time is 6:50 pm).
And those looking for a more intimate viewing experience can watch in the whiskey cellar’s underground viewing party from 4-7 p.m. featuring Derby-themed specialty cocktails. Though open to the public and free to attend, reservations are highly suggested and can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
