Museum Tower Dallas Selects: Where to Watch the Belmont Stakes

The minds superstitious thinkers are running wild with meticulously drawn connections about the 3-5 favorite and Triple Crown hopeful, California Chrome.

The 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner drew the No. 2 post for Saturday's race. It just so happens that Secretariat, the legendary 1973 Triple Crown winner, drew this same post position to win the Belmont Stakes and set a track record that has yet to be broken.

It was also pointed out that 20 of the Belmont’s winners had a name beginning with the letter C. Two of them were Triple Crown winners.

Here’s where Museum Tower's horse racing fans can watch the run for history -- in style and luxury, of course: 

Al Biernat's Filet Mignon

Want a safe bet on an amazing experience, no matter the outcome of the race? Residents, hop in the private Museum Tower car and let it take you to Al Biernat’s.

From 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the local upscale restaurant is hosting a Triple Crown watch party. Enjoy complimentary appetizers provided by Crown Royal 75th Anniversary Monarch, sip on the finest Pinot and feel pure satisfaction as you glide your knife through a tender 10-ounce Wagyu-Angus filet mignon cooked exactly how you want it.

Al Biernat’s is known for luring the who’s who of Dallas. It’s certainly top-of-the-mind choice amongst our residents.

Watch the race from the luxury of
life at Museum Tower
Terrace Lounge at Museum Tower

Sometimes, there’s no place you’d rather be than immersed in the comfort of luxurious life at Museum Tower. Our residents are invited to zip to the Terrace Lounge from their private elevators to watch the live television broadcast of the Belmont Stakes on our flat screens. 

As always, our 24/7 concierge is available to assist you in making any special arrangements from food service to pouring your favorite drink.

For a real treat, step outside the Terrace Lounge to the grassy lawn to see the best sunset on Dallas.
