The Club at ATL is Atlanta’s newest airport lounge, offering lounge space for Priority Pass members, Diner Club Card holders, British Airways, and Lufthansa’s guests a place to relax in Atlanta’s newest terminal, terminal F. The large club is located adjacent to the Delta Sky club in the center of the terminal and offers a more superior product compared to the Delta Skyclub. In fact, the club has better offerings than what I have seen in some European airport lounges.
The new club still smells and feels fresh, being open only since 7/18. The overly friendly staff are extremely helpful and courteous; even when I left the club and returned three hours later, they did not forget me. Also, since the club was not extremely busy, the bartender often walked through the club offering to refill visitor’s drinks!
The 7,257 square feet club is divided into two sections with a partial false wall and offers plenty of places for travelers to stretch out and relax, offering mediocre views of the runway. The Club can accommodate 160 people at a time.
The highlight to this club is the complimentary food and drink offering, unlike Delta who is busy trying to upsell everything, The Club at ATL offers multiple types of spirits, beers, and wines for free. Also, the Club is not stingy when it comes to their choices. In fact, The Club offers multiple types of each spirit including items like Johnny Walker Black, Johnny Walker Red, Chivas Regal, Jack Daniels, Glenlivet, Absolut, Jim Beam, etc etc. For the full offering, see the picture below of the bar and the picture of the drink menu. Do note, the printed menu is not all inclusive of all the complimentary offerings, and the bar actually has more than what is listed!
In addition to having a fantastic bar offering, The Club also has much better food items than Delta, presenting food items that could easily make up a light lunch. When I visited, there were two types of soups, Tomato Basil and Broccoli cheddar, along with four different types of sandwiches and wraps. There was also a broad selection of finger food including fresh vegetables, hard boiled eggs, chips, pita and hummus, cubed cheese, crackers, and a mango chutney.
The Club also has showers for those travelers looking to rinse off between flights and a computer work station complete with a printer/scanner/fax machine.
To gain entry to this club, you must meet the requirements set forth by British Airways or Lufthansa or be a Priority Pass, Diners Club or, Airline Club member. Priority Pass membership is free with the Platinum American Express card (along with access to Delta SkyClubs, US Air lounges, and AA Admiral clubs). Or passengers on any airline can by a day pass for $35. But remember, if you have the American Express Platinum Card, be sure to swing by The Club located in Terminal F if you have time when transferring in Atlanta. I personally know whenever I have time, I will make the trek to Terminal F to visit this club instead of lounging in the SkyClub.
