Green Curtain Events Organizes the Front-Running Chicago Kentucky Derby Parties for 2020

Just when it looked as though the Kentucky Derby was doomed to get caught on the inside rail in its race towards a potential run date, it made a late move coming around the final turn. Like much of the sporting calendar, the iconic race has a new run date at the same home. 

September 5th, and you and a few of your friends can get to the gates at one of Green Curtain Events’ Kentucky Derby Watch Parties around some of Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods. So while the guys can’t get dressed to the nines in pastel suits and the women can’t don giant floppy hats on site at Churchill Downs in 2020, there is still an option to get a bit toasty and place your bet on the best Kentucky Derby watch party around your neighborhood.

We’ve talked before about the innovative watch parties and socially distanced social events that Green Curtain Events have put on across the city, however, their Kentucky Derby parties are the odds-on favorite to take the green flag come race day. 

In total, 10 of your favorite bars around the city will host exclusive events in coordination with Green Curtain Events. This incredible one-off Kentucky Derby party is your one-stop-shop for the perfect Derby atmosphere outside of Churchill Downs. You can expect the classiest mixing and watch party socializing the day has to offer in a safe and comfortable environment.

This feels like a no-brainer for the first Saturday in September, especially when you consider the lengths that Green Curtain Events is taking to ensure this is a safe environment for you and your friends. That, plus, their unique ability to curate an exclusive feel on race day at not one, but 10, different venues truly makes for a memorable (or not memorable depending on your mint julep consumption) 2020 Kentucky Derby watch party.

The 10 venues around the city include the following: Bandit, Bounce, Broken Barrel Bar, Clutch, Houndstooth, HVAC, Old Ground’s Social, Public House, Whiskey Business, and The Whale.
