Tempest Bar Hosts the Best Kentucky Derby Party in NYC
This Saturday, we’ll celebrate the Kentucky Derby, known as “the fastest two minutes in sports.” For many in the game, a lifetime of dreams plays out as 20 horses charge down the stretch of Churchill Downs for the first time, and then gradually separate themselves until one stands alone, wearing a blanket of roses, in the winner’s circle.
At Tempest Bar, we’ll be hosting a Kentucky Derby party, with a pool among all our patrons that could yield $100-$200 for the winner.
For those who want a sure winner, we’ll be serving $4 pints and the best price in NYC on other types of beer and our full bar.
Since New York City OTB closed its doors, the only way to legally bet on the Kentucky Derby in New York City is to go to Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens or to open up an account online with one of the services we list below.
