American Express will open the largest Centurion® Lounge in its network tomorrow at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). The lounge will be located in Terminal E and will measure almost 26,000 square feet.

While in Atlanta, there are no shortage of lounges. Delta Air Lines operates nine Sky Clubs®, there is a Club at ATL, an Admirals Club, and a United Club. Soon, American Express will have its own dedicated space near Gate E11. The new Centurion® Lounge will feature a menu from Atlanta-based Chef Deborah VanTrece, multiple outdoor terraces with views of the airfield, and The Reserve by American Express (a whiskey bar serving signature cocktails designed by Jim Meehan, the Centurion® Mixologist). The new lounge will be huge and over 11,000 square feet larger than American Express’ current largest lounge at New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

One of the coolest aspects of this lounge will be the main seating area with a 50-year-old olive tree and a 3,850-square-foot custom light sculpture that represents a forest canopy.

The menu sounds particularly impressive. Chef Deborah VanTrece, owner of local Atlanta restaurants Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, Oreatha’s At The Point, and La Panarda, will bring her global take to the lounge. The custom menu includes Black Eyed Pea Biryani, Za’atar Grilled Chicken Thighs with Green Tomato Chimichurri, and Twisted Soul Salad with Strawberry Peppercorn Vinaigrette. Additionally, there will be a dedicated food and beverage station with gluten free and vegan options, including protein bites, salads, smoothies, and immunity booster juice shots.

As with many other Centurion® Lounges, amenities will include dedicated workstations and phone booths, premium restrooms and shower suites, several seating areas, and access to high-speed Wi-Fi.

Anthony’s Take: The Centurion® Lounges are crowded, but they still are some of my favorites in the United States. I can’t wait to check this one out on one of my many connections through Atlanta.
