As United Airlines updates its B East followed by its B West United Club lounges at Denver International Airport, United has opened a temporary “pop-up” lounge in DEN near Gate B59.
United Pop-Up Club Lounge Denver (DEN) Review
I stopped by here before boarding my flight to Los Angeles, just for a few minutes to check out, and thought it was fairly respectable for a temporary lounge in terms of the set-up and space. It is located near gate B59 in The B Concourse and open daily from 7:00 am to 9:30 pm.
What United did here was put up a wall around a pair of gates. One desk serves as the check-in area and the other gate desk serves as a bar. In between, seating has been added (from the closed lounge). The lounge does not seat very many, but was far less crowded than the B West lounge.
With no kitchen, only pre-packaged food is available, which included:
- potato chips
- hardboiled eggs
There’s also a limited selection of drinks including water, fruit juice, tea, coffee (no espresso), beer, and wine.
Interestingly, the bar also has Cantina Especial Tequila Soda, which does not appear available in the other United Clubs in Denver.
No restrooms are available inside the pop-up club, though there are terminal restrooms available outside.
Unlike the Club Fly Lounge nearby, you are not encouraged to take items to go in this lounge, despite everything being pre-packaged.
This temporary pop-up club can hardly be a described as an “airport lounge” and yet if you just want a quick snack or drink, this place is certainly better than nothing at all. I look forward to the new United Clubs in Denver (two will open later this year), but for now this will just have to do…
