Celebrate the Kentucky Derby In Style
Only two things are absolutely essential to a Kentucky Derby watch-party: a Mint Julep in your hand and a hat on your head. These South Florida locales are the perfect destinations to enjoy both!
Beaker & Gray
2637 North Miami Avenue in Wynwood
Beaker & Gray will be partnering with Woodford Reserve to celebrate the Kentucky Derby with a bar team serving up Mint Juleps with a twist. Guests can enjoy refreshing drinks and even take their signature copper cup home as a souvenir.
StripSteak by Michael Mina
4441 Collins Avenue in Fountainebleau Miami Beach
The annual StripSteak Kentucky Derby Party will be hosted from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. Enjoy live bluegrass music as well as a comfortable viewing lounge area with constant flows of appetizers and Mint Juleps in custom julep tins.
The Balcony at Las Olas
1309 E Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale
Enjoy a twist on the classic drink with the Peach Mint Julep cocktail from The Balcony. Guests can also watch the Derby itself at the upstairs and downstairs bars.
Tarpon River Brewing
280 SW 6th Street in Fort Lauderdale
For a mint drink with a different flavor, try the Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout with a Mint Treatment or the Bourbon Barrel Infused Honey Love. Of course, traditional Mint Juleps will also be available. Watch the Derby in Tarpon River Brewing’s barrel room and enter for your chance to win the best hat competition (the winner of this competition will receive a $100 gift card).
