Kentucky Derby Parties!

It’s time again to run for the roses at the 143rd Kentucky Derby in 2017! Even if you can’t make it to Kentucky to see the race in person, these locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix promise to bring the excitement of the race to Arizona on Saturday, May 6th.

Bevvy
Located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale,  Bevvy is the perfect place to enjoy the Kentucky Derby in style this weekend! The Bevvy has four off track betting booths to place your off-track bets, but if you prefer to simpley watch the action, there are large 80-inch televisions to view the most exciting two minutes in sports. Table reservations can be made by calling ahead. Champagne specials are available to mark the occasion or if you want to follow with tradition, of course there will be Bulleit Bourbon mint juleps. Don’t forget to “dress to impress” as there will be Best Dressed awards handed out.
