The Club LAS is a Priority Pass lounge in Las Vegas Terminal 3 that may be your antidote to an overcrowded American Express Centurion Lounge.
The Club LAS Review – Las Vegas Airport
To be clear, this is no Centurion Lounge. Food, at least when I was there, paled in comparison and the whole feel and decor of the lounge was far less luxe. Nevertheless, I stopped in here while mileage running and hungry and left satisfied after two bowls of soups.
Location + Access + Hours
Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas has two The Club LAS locations, one in Terminal 1D (open daily from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm) and the other in Terminal 3 (8:30 am to 9:30 pm daily), and the subject of this review.
This is a Priority Pass lounge (also works with DragonPass and LoungeKey). If you do not have a Priority Pass membership, you can purchase a pass for $50 (I’d personally question the value of doing so, but then again I did not drink alcohol in the lounge). The lounge is across from Gate E2.
As you enter the lounge, you will be directed left to a seating area leading to a dining area on the right and more seating behind it (the bar too).
I like the variety of seating choices and that plugs are usually within reach.
The dining room:
Food + Drink
Ok, these pictures are from the beginning of the year. I’d imagine that the buffet is now self-serve or via QR code, though I’d welcome your confirmation in the comments section below.
If you like soup, you will like this lounge. I like soup on a cold day (and Las Vegas does get cold in the winter) and I thought both the tomato soup and the chicken noodle soup were very flavorful.
During my visit, you walked up and requested food rather than get it yourself. Other choices included hummus and vegetable plates, cheese and crackers, pita bread, pretzels, granola bars, trail mix, and cookies (i.e., a bunch of junk).
Soft drinks, coffee, tea, and water were self-serve.
All alcohol at the bar was free and being Vegas, a lot of people around me were drinking like crazy.
Virtual Newspapers + Magazines
While no physical newspapers or magazines were present, virtual copies were available.
Restrooms + Showers
The restrooms were unisex individual rooms and the one I used was quite unkept, with toilet paper and paper towels all over the floor.
This would not be my go-to lounge at Las Vegas Airport, but it beats the gate area and might be better (and I say might…I’d imagine it gets very crowded as well some days) than the AMEX Centurion Lounge on a packed day with a line outside.
