Bonfire of the vanity: A sneak peek at this year’s hottest Derby party venue

Steve Wilson

21c Museum Hotel co-owner Steve Wilson took The Courier-Journal on an inside-the-hotel tour of where Vanity Fair magazine will hold its first Derby party, Friday night. But unlike other Derby events (we’re looking at you, Barnstable-Brown), the upmarket glossy famous for its Oscar party won’t be disclosing the guest list.

Still, everyone else can watch guests arrive on the black (yes) carpet, starting at 8 p.m. (Side note: Wilson says he’s dreaming of opening a 21c in Havana, now that the U.S. is moving toward normalizing relations.) Here’s the CJ story, and a tour video.

Top: That’s comedienne Amy Schumer on the cover of the magazine’s May issue.
