On my way between my winter place in Tampa and my home in Chicago, I had the chance to check out a Delta Sky Club® that I had not previously visited. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has a staggering nine Sky Clubs® and this was the seventh that I have visited (you can find the other reviews here). The lounge in Terminal T might be my new favorite for its space, art, and food offerings.


Access is granted to passengers with memberships (purchased annually), one-time pass holders (earned from the co-branded American Express cards), Delta One®, SkyTeam premium cabin passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus when flying internationally in any class of service (this changes in 2023), the Centurion® and the Platinum Card® from American Express holders, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card holders, WestJet business class passengers, and WestJet Rewards Platinum and Gold Elite. Allowed guests vary by access type. A same-day boarding pass is required to enter the Delta Sky Club®.

Anthony’s Take: Delta offered a make-your-own poke bowl as well as multiple hot dishes and my favorite soup (Tomato Bisque). I loved the art throughout this Sky Club® and when I visited, it was not too packed. I found a table easily and also liked the giant TV wall in the back of the lounge.

An elevator takes you up a level to the Sky Club®. Directly inside you’ll find kiosks to the right and a desk staffed by two agents to the left.

The lounge is divided up into several rooms. With the main one housing the bar and buffet.

The bar is located on the left side just beyond check-in and the smaller of the rooms. It offers a great variety of complimentary beverages as well as premium wines and spirits for purchase (including full bottles of champagne).

Delta Sky Club ATL T6 8

Just past the buffet, you’ll find an entire area dedicated to beverages. This includes multiple coffee machines as well as water, iced tea, and lemonade (I love that this is a staple of Sky Clubs® and I often make Arnold Palmers).

Starbucks drip coffee is dispensed here with tea and all of the condiments you could want.

Seating & Decor

As mentioned, there is a lot of seating with various types for working and relaxing around the lounge and it was not crowded during my visit. There were so many pieces of art that I loved in here. I like that Delta features modern and Pop art throughout its lounges. The back wall of the lounge is filled with a giant TV wall (shown above).

This Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, and the food and beverages mentioned above. It doesn’t have showers or any other amenities, but it’s a good spot to grab some food when you’re departing from the A gates at ATL.

Overall Impression:

The Delta Sky Club® by gate T6 in Atlanta offers a great dinner buffet, plenty of seating, and a relaxing space to spend some time before a flight.

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: I love the lounges where The Platinum Card® from American Express grants me access. It has had a prominent place in my wallet for many years now. While it does have an annual fee of $695, it provides many travel benefits and will always be my go-to for lounge access (both Delta Sky Clubs® and Centurion Lounges) and booking airfare from the airlines to earn 5x points (up to $500,000 per calendar year). Learn moreRates & Fees.
