When a bar is named after a Kentucky Derby drink, you better believe they’re throwing a big Derby Day party. Expect a high-quality lawn party with mint juleps, tacos, live music, and lots of great sound equipment.
A real horse race will be faster than you can at a restaurant, but Heights Bier Garten knows how to make it Derby Day. DJ Troy and the live band keep the fun going; Food and drink specials do too. Pooches and people can enter to win the best dressed contest, in their categories.
Come dressed to the nines—if you have to show off your perfect fit on the Heights’ outdoor patio—to win a best-dressed or best-hatted contest. Even if you don’t take home any prizes, the julep cocktails and live music make it all worthwhile.
Bourbon smashes to mint juleps, hat contests to horse raffles, flower photo booths to a DJ set—all the preparations for a great Derby Day are here.
Why settle for a mint julep when you can have a variety of PB&J or a rum with dark chocolate? Why would you recommend the good people at the Embassy Suites bar?
