We had about 5 hours to kill in Newark before our redeye flight to Stockholm, so I decided to burn 2 of our one day passes to the United Club Newark.  There are actually 4 different United Club Newark locations, including 3 United Club Newark Terminal C locations.  There is also a United Club in Newark Terminal A but there is NOT a United Club Newark Terminal B location.

United Club Newark Terminal C locations

There is a United Club Newark airport on the upper level outside of Gate C74 as well as outside Gate C120.  Additionally, at the time of this writing, United has a “pop up” location near Gate C124.

The United Club Newark Terminal C (Gate C120) location is …. wait for it…. outside Gate C120 :-).  It’s located right near Starbucks Coffee between the C2 and C3 sections of EWR airport.

United Club EWR Terminal C (Gate C120) seating

We were there between about 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. while we waited for our flight to Stockholm.  There were several large seating areas, though some of the seating was blocked off due to the construction that they are doing to make the United Polaris First lounge in Newark airport.  The seating areas seemed fairly crowded for the whole time that we were there, though we spent our time in the United Club Newark airport Terminal C family room (see below)

There were also a wide array of business center / cubicle areas, almost all of which were full when we were there.

United Club Newark Terminal C (Gate C120) food, drink and snacks

The food, drinks and snacks at the United Club Newark Terminal C Gate C120 location were pretty standard for other United Clubs I’ve been to (SEE ALSO: United Club Cleveland review).  There were 2 varieties of hot soups available – in our case clam chowder and Italian wedding soup.  My son and I both had the clam chowder which passed the 8 year old test.  There are also a variety of vegetables and salad fixings, along with bread, rolls and cheese cubes.

And of course cookies and brownies.  The cookies at the United Club Newark Terminal C Gate C120 were nice and soft, which was a change from some of the (hard, stale) cookies I’ve had at other airline lounge locations.

There was water available in pitchers out in the main area of the United Club, and there was also a large bar area, where I assume soft drinks were also available (I just stuck to water so as not to over caffeinate myself before my red-eye flight)

United Club Newark airport Terminal C (Gate C120) amenities

The United Club Newark Terminal C (Gate C120) location is the only one of the United Club locations in Newark airport that has a family room.  The family room is off to the left once you walk into the United Club, and is kept locked.  I’m not sure if that’s because it isn’t really supposed to be open (it is near where they are constructing the Polaris lounge) or if it’s some sort of safety issue.

The family room is pretty basic with just two couches and a TV.  I could find no TV channels that were kid appropriate (no Disney or even Cartoon Network), and while there is a DVD player, there are no DVDs.  When I asked about the DVDs, the United Club agent told me that they used to carry DVDs but people kept stealing them…..

The United Club Newark Terminal C (Gate C120) location also has showers, though when we were there, they were all closed due to the construction

The wifi at the United Club Newark Airport Terminal C (Gate C120) location was fast and reliable, which is generally the #1 thing I look for in an airline lounge location

Have you visited the United Club Newark Terminal C (Gate C120) location?  What do you think?  Are there other United Club locations at Newark airport that are better, or are all the United Clubs pretty much the same?
