Delta opened the Denver Sky Club in in June 2016 and joined American, the USO, and United to offer lounges at Denver International airport for travelers. The Sky Club is 4,600 square feet and can comfortable sit 90 people throughout the three zones in the club. Denver’s Sky Club is in concourse A next to the USO and Admirals club. Each day the club is open from 5 am to 12:30 am. Delta’s website states the club closes at 7:30pm, but as Delta now operates a red-eye at 12:30 to Atlanta, Denver’s Sky Club stays open later. The Sky Club is fairly basic, but offers all the normally amenities including free food, booze, snacks, and a mini business center. The lounge does not feature Delta’s Sky bar or pay for purchase booze or food options. The small club instead offers basic snacks and name brand booze for free and does not try to up sell customers.
Denver Sky Club Bar & Dinning Area
I was visiting the Denver Sky Club around 9 pm and had the opportunity to be in the club between Delta flights when the lounge was nearly empty. Despite being near empty, the food was not replenished by the staff. This makes sense to help reduce waste, but it also looks as though the staff doesn’t care about presentation.
The highlight to the Denver Delta Sky Club is by far the self-serve food and drinks. As a previous Northwest flyer, my favorite part of the old Northwest World Clubs were easily the self-serve bars. Build your own drink, and don’t have to worry about finding a bar tender. It makes for quicker service and I get exactly what I want! Many Sky Clubs have seen their self-serve bars phased out and replaced by Delta full service bars which up sell drinks to customers and pour weaker beverages.
Sky Club TV Lounge & Sitting Areas
In addition to the lounges Dining area and bar area there is also a TV room and a quieter side room. Delta does shut down the side room around 9pm as the lounge is empty and staff prefers to clean the room and then close it off. There are nice big seats for two in the side room and would recommend this area for couples traveling together.
The TV room is small and can only comfortable sit about 20 people. Thankfully during my visit the lounge was near empty and all 7 guests were enjoying the NFL AFC divisional playoffs.
Denver Sky Club Final Thoughts
The Delta Sky Club in Denver is small but serves its purpose for the airlines 40 daily flights. The small club should sufficiently service the flights and provides flyers a comfortable space to relax. Denver does not have any pay in lounges, so having a Sky Club makes flying more enjoyable for those flying out of DEN. The lounge does not have shower facilities or bathrooms, but instead bathrooms are down the hall and shared by the Admiral club, Delta Sky Club, and the USO. There is no big extras at this lounge, but the “Free” drinks and snacks are welcome! Stop by and check out one of Delta’s newest Sky Club, after all it beats sitting at the gate!
