Good LA spot for watching the Kentucky Derby?

Hey everyone - I'm new to LA and looking for a good bar or restaurant to watch the Derby this Saturday. Nothing fancy -- interested in some decent pub food and a mint julep or two, but would love to watch at a place that has a dedicated big screen and a crowd that's into the race, and not just somewhere that has it playing on a tiny set in the corner.

Any suggestions? Sorry if that's vague - still learning the city and don't know where to find the nicer, non-horrible sports bars in town. Thanks!

    1. I'd call The Derby in Arcadia to see if they'll be showing it. My guess is yes. It's an old-school steakhouse, once owned by one of Seabiscuit's jockeys, and is a real hang for race people. Lots of atmosphere.
