I had a chance to visit the brand new American Airlines Admirals Club in Denver this week and walked away very impressed. AA has done a tremendous job with this lounge, which marks a huge leap forward in design and quality compared to the prior design.
New AA Admirals Club Denver – A Lovely American Airlines Lounge
The new lounge is located in the C Concourse.
What struck me most was the high quality of the design elements and furniture. For example, when you walk in, the stone countertop has the American logo carved out and behind it is a black backlit logo. The color scheme is so much better than the previous red and blue.
Walk further in and you come to a large sitting room with a fireplace lit and dark couches and chairs which accent the room so nicely. Even better, the couches and chairs are very comfortable.
Walk further into the lounge and you’ll notice nice wood accents to further highlight the mountain lodge theme (very similar to what United has done in its new Denver lounges).
The dining room includes tables with chairs, booths, and a bar. Again, there are thoughtful details like the artwork in each booth.
Food has also greatly improved. I happened to be there during the transition from breakfast to lunch and loved the tacos, salads, and charcuterie board. There’s also an expanded selection of beer, wine, and cocktails that are complimentary and still a menu from which you can order heartier meals from.
Perhaps the only miss is that I did not see any showers. The bathrooms are beautiful, though.
American Airlines did a great job on its new Denver lounge and the new Admirals Club design elements (which we also see at Washington National and Newark) mark a great new chapter in the style and evolution of Admirals Clubs. I’ll publish a full review of this lounge shortly.
