Although the official start of summer isn’t until the solstice in June, the month of May begins with a pair of celebrations that offer a hint of what’s to come and ends with Memorial Day weekend, which serves as the unofficial start of summer. Virgin Hotels Nashville is raring to get fun times underway at its inviting The Pool Club rooftop bar and restaurant. First up, a Cinco de Mayo celebration with “5 at 5.” On Thursday, May 5, enjoy $5 margaritas from 5PM to 6PM that pair perfectly with a bite of the “Guac It Like I Talk It” freshly made guacamole dish. Take in the sounds of DJ Que Rico and special guests from 5PM to 11PM while enjoying sips and stunning Nashville views from The Pool Club’s rooftop.

Swing back to The Pool Club on Saturday, May 7th starting at 11AM for the Kentucky Derby done Nashville-style. No need to travel the 200 miles to Churchill Downs for the perfect Mint Julep as it awaits at the rooftop oasis for $10. Sip this signature southern cocktail and munch on a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich while viewing the race and posing with (but not riding!) miniature horses. Extra points for those wearing their best Derby hats.

Virgin Hotels Nashville is located at 1 Music Square W on the city’s iconic Music Row.
