Well I’ll tell you:

“1. Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24th. DERBY OPEN. We’ll be hosting brunch starting at 11 am .. and then, we’ll be celebrating with dinner and cocktails till last call in the wee hours .. .we’ll have plenty of Egg Nog throughout .. and some mistletoe too :)

(We’ll be closed, however, for Sunday, December 25th, in honor of Santa Claus.)

2. New Year’s Eve Party: Derby Decades of Decadence.

The roof will be decked out as if it’s 1977 … our Studio 54 playlist will feature the Bee Gees, Chic, Hot Chocolate, Sylvester, the O’Jays, Rose Royce, KC & the Sunshine Band, Taste o Honey, Bowie, Prince, the Commodores, Earth Wind and Fire …We’ll also be mixing disco-cocktails … the first two on the list being the Harvey Wallbanger and the Purple Passion.

Downstairs, it will be 1997, with our 15 Minute Club set-list including the Spin Doctors, Smash Mouth, Collective Soul, Sugar Ray, Marcy Playground, Weezer, The Verve, Luscious Jackson, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Tipping our hat to the decade, our ’90s cocktails will feature the Baltimore Zoo and the Surfer on Acid.
Kamikaze shooters and So Co & Lime also will be making an appearance both upstairs and down. And, of course, glasses of bubbly for $4 throughout …

As is our tradition, the derby’s party is NO COVER. With a Free Champagne Toast at midnight … plus hats, tiaras, and noise makers.

This year, we’re also making available reservations for parties of 6 or more (email us at [email protected] to make a reservation AND to secure your free bottle of champagne, which will be given to all parties who earmark a table!)

Dress to impress… black tie optional .. or as a compliment to your favorite decade!
