12th Annual Keeneland
Cocktail Brunch

To kick off the opening weekend of Keeneland’s Fall Meet, G&G gathered at Lexington’s newest boutique hotel, the Manchester, for the twelfth annual Keeneland Cocktail Brunch. Before the races, guests headed to the rooftop to enjoy live music, a signature Southern brunch, and festive cocktails from Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Natalie’s juices. After a morning of refined food and drink, guests made their way over to the exclusive Keeneland Clubhouse to enjoy an afternoon of top-tier horse racing.
