Run For The Roses

May 19, 2015

Whew - after serving thousands of Mint Juleps and Hot Browns to our Kentucky Derby Day guests, we can officially put the 141st Derby Day to bed and start making plans for next May's "greatest two minutes in sports." The energy and excitement that surrounds this iconic event is at its most fervent right here in the lobby of our Louisville landmark hotel. In our nearly 100-year-history, we've hosted a nearly endless parade of glitterati for all the pageantry that surrounds the Kentucky including Duke of Windsor, Harry Truman, Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Young, Joan Crawford, Muhammad Ali, Jimmy Carter, George H. Bush, and Barack Obama (to name just a few). Plan ahead to be a part of the 142nd Kentucky Derby next year by contacting Corie Murray at 502-736-2989 or cmurrray@brownhotel.com for details and reservations. And if you happen to arrive before May 2016, we'll have a Hot Brown and a Mint Julep waiting for you in the Lobby Bar.
