The first Saturday in May is a national holiday in our mind, so when it came time to bring the South to Soho House, we knew exactly what to do. For this private event, we made sure guests were treated to Soho's trademark level of hospitality, but with a heavy does of Southern charm. Ruth Hunt bourbon balls came straight from the source and one of Kentucky's most lauded caterers sent up a batch of her famous pimento cheese. The mint juleps were plentiful, thanks to Larceny Bourbon, and guests were able to choose their own official Kentucky Derby glass from a display of hand-selected vintage collectables.
The crowd bet for the chance to win an array of prizes that included bottles of Kentucky's best bourbon and bourbon-flavored Southern Caramels, and we announced the big winners after American Pharaoh took the purse.
