i have been there for an exhibition not to see a horse race, each time I'm inside i can feel a positive energy specially with all the "Verdure".

The Beirut Hippodrome is a landmark. Every Sunday, horse races take place. As a location, it's a very beautiful place - It's huge and has a lot of trees (which is becoming rare in Beirut). At the hippodrome, you can have a bite to eat at the restaurant which has a terrace where you can watch the races. The restaurant serves Lebanese cuisine!

This was awesome to see, even if you are driving by in a cab. Completely exposed, no interpretation, I suggest visiting and then going home to research.

We enjoyed the Beirut Hippodrome last Sunday ... a great sunny Sunday at the beginning of December. Horse racing took place already since around 13h30, we arrived a bit later but in time for the second or third race. Okay, it is not Ascot - hardly any ladies with great hats here, but lot's of elderly taxi drivers with a love for horses, shishas and a bit of betting. Great fun to see. Most Beirutis have not even been here. Same for us, took us 1 1/2 years to discover that behind these wall, next to some big streets, there is actually something happening. Also great to see, as it is one the largest green areas in Beirut (yes, sadly not many parks in the Lebanese capital). Has a lot of potential - if just the city would make more out of it.
Go for it - if just for one visit to suck up the atmosphere.
