Memorial Day Hours

The winning has gotten so wild over the past five years at Churchill Downs’ Derby City Gaming & Hotel, just off I-264 exit 14 on Poplar Level Road, that Louisville needed to have another action-packed place play. Now big thrills are off and running in the heart of Louisville with the opening of Derby City Gaming Downtown—the all-new 43,000-square-foot historical racing machine entertainment venue! Like slots? You’ll love Derby City Gaming Downtown! Spin and win on close to 500 of the latest and greatest games like Buffalo, Lock it Link, Ultimate Fire Link and more! Plus, with a non-smoking gaming floor and an open-air smoking and gaming patio, you can choose to play your way in the environment you prefer.

Bring your night to life at three lively bars and lounges. First Turn Sports Bar & Stage will be your homefield for fun, big screen TVs, and convenient sports betting kiosks to wager on all your favorite sports. Soak up the atmosphere in winning style at Trophy Bar, featuring incredible real trophies from some of the most legendary horse races, the finest bourbon and hand-rolled cigars. Plus be sure to stop and smell the Rosé at Fascinator Wine Bar where you can choose from a well-curated list of fine wines and charcuterie.
