Royal 615 Lounge

Steeplechase's 82nd Annual Race Benefiting The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital At Vanderbilt

Many consider the Royal 615 Lounge presented by Conrad Nashville at Percy Warner Park as the Music City's hottest party in an exclusive tent within the Steeplechase infield. In general, the area includes upscale wash stations, a complimentary drink from the bubbly bar, entertainment, snacks, food trucks and a full-service bar for the Iroquois Steeplechase Rite of Passage on May 13.

"I'm looking forward to experiencing Steeplechase from the 615 Lounge because not only does it have a great DJ and lively, fun environment, it has a great vantage point of the races," proclaims Megan Miller Salvador. 

Additional lounge seating has been added in the VIP area this year. An exciting lineup of DJ entertainers also are slated. Organizers indicate the lounge is expected to sell out again this year.

There are three tiers of access to the Lounge:
