Anyone go through Denver International Airport frequently? You’ve probably run into the same issue I have: Denver simply hasn’t been a great lounge airport.

The city is a United hub, so naturally there are two United Clubs (Concourse B).  American carved out an Admirals Club (Concourse A), and Delta has a Sky Club (Concourse A).  For those that qualify, there’s also USO Lounge in Concourse A.

And when Priority Pass first started working with restaurant locations, the lounge aggregator partnered with the Timberline Grille in Concourse C for a while. THAT was actually some really great food!  Unfortunately, it didn’t last long.

With no Priority Pass option and being out of United Club passes from my Chase United Explorer, I was out of options the last time I flew through Denver (DEN).

Things are looking better for my next trip, though!

Centurion Lounge Opens in Denver International Concourse C

The Centurion Lounge at Denver International Airport opened February 1!  I bet most Points With a Crew readers are familiar with Centurion Lounges, but in case you aren’t — they’re typically a great way to kill an hour or two.  Most have plenty of comfortable seating, great food options, and full bars (though not self-service). The Denver Centurion also has dedicated work spaces, a game room, a family room, and phone booths across more than 14,000 square feet on the Mezzanine level of Concourse C.

Most Centurion Lounges work with a specific chef and cuisine, and AmEx has tapped Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson to build an Italian-heavy menu for Denver.  This lounge will also specifically highlight many rotating beers from Denver’s huge craft beer scene.  Already two great reasons to stop by!

I am a huge fan of airport lounges in general, and I think the Centurion lounges are great.  Yes, I know Centurions can get a little crowded at peak travel times, but American Express continues to upgrade and expand. With all the other benefits my Platinum card gives me, Centurion Lounge access is sweet icing on the cake.

Check out the full press release here on Business Wire. AmEx has added a number of new locations to the Centurion network in the past few years and plans to open in London Heathrow later this year.

I haven’t been on a plane in over a year, and it’s starting to show … fingers crossed that travel is easy again later this year!  If you’re flying through Denver soon, let us know what you think about the newest Centurion Lounge.
