Derby Day at OAK Long Bar


Giddyup to OAK Long Bar + Kitchen for a Derby Day celebration that encompasses the perfect day-of trifecta: boozy cocktails, good food, and free prizes. On May 5th, the Fairmont Copley Plaza‘s signature restaurant will be brimming with guests in seersucker suits, sundresses, and large floppy hats–the best dressed of which will win some goodies, so make sure to break out your finest. The kitchen will be rolling out southern-inspired items (think: deep fried deliciousness!) alongside their regular menu, while the bar is shaking up something extra special for the occasion. Grab a “Triple Crown”, “Winner’s Circle” or, if you prefer to stick to the classics, a Mint Julep, to receive a raffle ticket that’ll have you rooting extra-hard for your horse’s number. Rolling in with a big group? Call ahead at 617.267.5222 to reserve a space that’ll include all the libations and snacks you’ll need, and check out some of the race day offerings below.
