Want a place to enjoy the races after your morning meeting?  Our special event team would be happy to arrange for seating in one of our public dining rooms.  For a more formal dining experience, the Phoenix and Lexington Kentucky Dining Rooms on the 4th floor of the grandstand provide a perfect (picturesque) setting along with lunch buffet, general admission, a racing program and table for four*. The Lexington/Kentucky Room overlooks the track’s finish line; the Phoenix Room overlooks Keeneland’s iconic paddock.

Eclipse Room

Located on the fourth floor, the Eclipse Room is located behind the Corporate Suites and is part of our exclusive Clubhouse. The room is ideal for a private lunch, comfortably accommodating up to 40 guests. Groups renting a Corporate Suite may also add the Eclipse Room for additional seating during the race day. Note that the Eclipse Room does not have a track view, but does have four TVs and guests have access to the Clubhouse Lawn (pictured below) to view races.
