Derby Day Celebration, May 2

Join us in beautiful downtown Frankfort for one of the most fun days of the year: Derby! Check out our full calendar and offerings below:

7 am: Breakfast begins with a full selection of breakfast burritos, country ham biscuits, sausage biscuits, homemade quiche, fruit, and muffins.

All Day Drinks: Drinks Specials include our homemade mint juleps (nothing comes out of a bottle except the bourbon), and many other spring-themed cocktails. We'll also have nonalcoholic specials for the whole family to enjoy.

All Day Food: Freshly smoked BBQ ribs, pulled pork sandwiches with homemade sauce will dominate the food scene. BJ's Ribs (family from Georgia) are hauling their full rig in to provide us vittles that make this a true day of celebration. Looking for something lighter? Our sandwich, salads, and soup menu will keep you energized throughout the day.

All Day Race Watching: We will be showing the races on our big-screen TV, with the highlight being - of course - the last race. Post time is 6:24 pm. Join the spirited crew as we sing My Old Kentucky Home.

8 pm: Small Time Napoleon takes the stage to cap off the day. They've been described as "a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Purchase tickets ($10) here.

We are located in beautiful and historic downtown Frankfort, KY across the street from Kentucky's Old Capitol Building.
