The Best Kentucky Derby Party in NYC

 

This Kentucky Derby, whatever it is—a race, an emotion, a turbulence, an explosion—is one of the most beautiful and violent and satisfying things I have ever experienced.”     —John Steinbeck

On the first Saturday of May, all eyes turn to Churchill Downs racetrack for the Kentucky Derby, the first jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown. As Dan Fogelberg sang, it’s the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance.

Horse racing is immensely popular with many Americans, but not followed nearly as closely as some of the principal sports. Thus, it can be difficult to find NYC bars showing the Kentucky Derby. This is unfortunate, because Derby Day is one of the best parties of the year.

Mustang Harry’s is one of the best sports bars in NYC, and we’ll be showing the full Kentucky Derby program in its entirety, to a fair-sized audience of racing fans. It will be one of the best Kentucky Derby parties in NYC.

Come try our new line-up of craft beers and our ever-expanding menu, which continues to delight our customers every day as we roll out previews of our new menu.

Mustang Harry’s one of the Best Notre Dame Bars in NYC

Fans of Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football are more stoked at the beginning of the season than they’ve been in decades.

The team attained its first #1 ranking in 20 years last season, and even a stinging defeat in the BCS Championship and an injury to the starting QB can’t quench fans’ desire to see their team take the field again.

The Notre Dame bandwagon has become so big that fans need a new, convenient bar to watch the games. We’re happy to report that Mustang Harry’s has a 100 foot long bar on its first floor and a large football lounge on its second floor.

Other NYC bars host watch parties – but not only won’t have a seat for you, they won’t even give you a decent place to stand. Do you want to watch the game while standing three-deep at the bar among 20-somethings, having to push through each time you want a drink, and waiting for the inevitable fight?

We didn’t think so.

Come to Mustang Harry’s and enjoy the game from the comfort of your own table, with a member of our stellar wait staff bringing you everything your Irish heart desires.

We’ll offer Happy Hour prices to all Notre Dame fans during games, and we’ll also be raffling off Official Notre Dame Football Jerseys for weeks 2, 3 and 4! If your card is selected, pick any football jersey from the official store on ND.com, up to a $100 value, and it’s yours.

And yes, we do play quite a few renditions of the Notre Dame Victory March.

Call us now at 212-268-8930  to reserve a table.

A NYC Bar that Shows Horse Racing!

Horse racing, the Sports of Kings, is treated like a pauper by most sports bars. Most bars in NYC don’t show horse racing outside of the Kentucky Derby.

We’re happy to tell you that Mustang Harry’s is the exception. We usually have small crowds for major stakes races, and we’d like to make it a big crowd. Thus, we’ll be following this year’s top three year-olds on the Road to the Roses and through the Triple Crown. If we build enough of an audience, we’ll show all major stakes races throughout the year.

The lineup thus far:

March 30 Florida Derby and Louisiana Derby

April 6 Santa Anita Derby and Wood Memorial

April 13 Blue Grass Stakes and Arkansas Derby

May 4 Kentucky Derby Day

May 18 Preakness Stakes

June 8 Belmont Stakes

For the Triple Crown races we’ll have a full gala celebration.

Invite all of your horse racing friends and come out and watch these crucial races with your fellow racing fans!
