A trio of Juleps mark Derby Day at THE TENNESSEAN Hotel

April 21, 2018

A trio of Julep cocktails will complement the Run for the Roses as THE TENNESSEAN Personal Luxury Hotel’s Drawing Room lounge celebrates Derby Day on Saturday, May 5, from 3 to 7 p.m.

Guests can enjoy three twists on the traditional Mint Julep – watermelon, strawberry and passionfruit – created especially for the day and a make-your-own Kentucky Hot Brown sandwich bar along with other savory and sweet items from The Drawing Room’s artisan menu.

Derby attire is encouraged, and the person with the best hat will win a prize from The Drawing Room. There is no cover charge to attend this event, and reservations are not required.

The Drawing Room is a contemporary lounge located on the second floor of THE TENNESSEAN Hotel, 531 Henley St. in downtown Knoxville. Complimentary valet service is available at the hotel’s entrance off Clinch Avenue.
