Derby 2016

Derby Bourbon

Our favorite time of the year is right around the corner. Derby. This year we have lots of fun things in store for the Louisvillians and visitors lucky enough to dine with us the first week in May. We’ll be catering Mayor’s Fischer’s private Oaks event at Metro Hall for the 5th year in a row as well as the Convention & Visitor’s Bureau Derby event! At the restaurant, we’ll be offering a limited 4 course menu for $70/person with beverages, gratuity & tax additional. We will implement a strict 48 hour cancellation policy, and will have to charge $70/person in the group if we’re not given ample notice of cancellation. We will have two seatings on Friday evening, and one on Saturday. Each seating has a 30 minute window with cocktails first and then dinner immediately following.  Once a full group arrives, you can begin ordering! On Friday, we’ll have a 5pm and 8:30pm seating, and Saturday we’ll just have an 8pm seating. We have a dynamite menu lined up with some incredible beverages to pair. Our finely tuned staff will guide you through the menu, making sure you have a most memorable evening. As always, we are happy to accommodate any type of dietary restriction – vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and more.  Make your reservations online today as we are already nearly full!
