“The empires Largest Hippodrome”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I was aMazed!!Although alot is no longer standing or existing it is easy to imahine yourself entering the Roman empires largest Hippdrome with a seating capacity of 40,000pple.What does exist is on a grande scale and is surrounded by apartment blocks like its just a local park.Only in Lebanon,anywhere else this kind of thing would sadly be in a glass box

“As any hippodrome.”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

I think that this was a nice and entertaining place that lost much after the war. I was at exhibition and market there, and I enjoyed it.

“Fun way to spend a Sunday Afternoon”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

The Beirut Hippodrome has horse races every Sunday - head upstairs for a late lunch, a few drinks and bets on theTote. The Favorite does not always win! Enjoy the sport of millionaires for the price of a couple of drinks!
