I was excited to hear the announcement in June 2024 that several Escape Lounges had joined the Priority Pass network, including the Escape Lounge CVG in my home airport.

The Escape Lounge CVG is a Priority Pass lounge, so if you have a Priority Pass membership (likely from a credit card), you’ll have complimentary access to Escape Lounge CVG. If you don’t have Priority Pass, you can buy a day pass to the Escape Lounge CVG for as low as $32/ person, which I would not recommend

Priority Pass CVG / Cincinnati airport lounge location

The Escape Lounge CVG is most convenient if you are flying Delta or American Airlines in Concourse B. It’s located outside Gate B20 in Concourse B.

While Concourse A and Concourse B are accessible post-security, if you are flying out of Concourse A, you’ll probably want to visit The Club CVG, which is a Priority Pass lounge in Concourse A.

The Escape Lounge CVG airport lounge is open from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time. If you have a flight outside those hours, you unfortunately will not be able to use The Cincinnati Escape Lounge Priority Pass lounge.

Escape Lounge CVG Priority Pass Cincinnati airport lounge seating

There aren’t a ton of seating options available at the Escape Lounge CVG. The check-in desk is right at the entrance to the lounge, and there is a small seating area to your right.

There are also a few seats to your left, along with a raised table that has 8 seats.

Cincinnati Concourse B airport lounge review: food

This Cincinnati Airport (CVG) Priority Pass lounge had basic availability for food. I was there during breakfast time (around 6 a.m.) but they have a different menu for breakfast and then lunch and dinner, as pictured below.

I had the eggs and sausage

Along with an apple cinnamon muffin.

There is water, lemonade, coffee and an espresso machine. There are also canned soft drinks, but I think this is literally the first time I’ve ever seen canned soft drinks in a minifridge in a lounge like this and there was no Diet Coke. It was just Coke, Sprite and then I think a ginger ale. Not a big deal but it was unusual.

The Priority Pass CVG wifi in the Escape Lounge CVG Lounge was moderate. I didn’t have any trouble doing light browsing.

Priority Pass CVG / Cincinnati Concourse B Airport lounge amenities

The Cincinnati Airport Escape Lounge CVG does not have much in the way of amenities. It’s pretty much just the complimentary wifi and seating. Similar to The Club CVG in Concourse A, there are not even restrooms in the lounge – instead, you’ll need to make your way back into the terminal.

In any case, I rate the Escape Lounge CVG lounge decent and I would definitely recommend it if you are departing Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG) with a Priority Pass card out of Concourse B. But if you’re flying out of Concourse A, I would stick with The Club CVG – there’s no reason to make a special trip to the other concourse.
