American Airlines recently debuted a new Admirals Club design at Washington-Reagan Airport, with a second refurbished club to open soon at Newark Liberty International Airport.
The third club with this new design has opened at Denver International Airport this week, and there is new food on offer, along with new aesthetics.
Let’s take a closer look.
Details of New Admirals Club at Denver
Previously, Denver International Airport (DEN) had a dual Admirals Club and British Airways Lounge, with both lounges operated in the same club space. With the recent club architecture changes, American has replaced this lounge with a new American Airlines-only lounge space that officially opened on October 18, 2023.
The new lounge is approximately 6,000 square feet and will be able to accommodate 114 visitors. Like many lounges in Denver, the lounge is located upstairs (accessible by elevator), so you won’t find it on the same floor as the departure gates. You’ll find this entrance near gates C30 and C32. To accommodate early departures, the lounge opens at 4:30 a.m. and closes nightly at 11:30 p.m., allowing you to access the lounges if you’re on a redeye flight.
Like the new lounge at Washington-Reagan (DCA) and Newark (EWR), the lounge features a lot of dark woods, metals, and the feeling that you’re outside. Thanks to Denver’s proximity to many world-class outdoor hiking and skiing destinations, this lounge has a particular outdoor emphasis.
You’ll find various seating options throughout the lounge, including tables, comfy couches, and window seats, each offering charging options for your devices.
New Food To Get Excited About
Each newly opened Admirals Club in the system features regional foods specific to that area, and Denver is no acceptation. Thanks to Denver’s location, you’ll find an emphasis on Southwest regional cuisine. Inside, you can find:
- Pancakes with fruit and cashew-hempseed granola
- Chipotle chicken tacos served with Raquelita’s tortillas
- Marco’s tomato and poblano salsa with Raquelita’s tortilla chips
- Rocky Road brownies
- Colorado Bulldog signature cocktail
- Michelada with a bison stick
- Cerveceria Colorado Mi Vida IPA
- Bobo’s Apple Pie Oat Bites
- Boulder Canyon Sea Salt Kettle Chips
While Admirals Club food certainly isn’t up to par with Delta’s Sky Clubs, it is a huge improvement over the lounges that exclusively offer cheese cubes, soups, and vegetable sticks.Hot Tip:
The Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite Mastercard® gives you unlimited access to Admirals Club locations, along with other excellent benefits if you’re flying American.
As American Airlines continues to open up these new lounges under the new design aesthetic, it will replace the older, more sterile look of its now outdated clubs. The Denver club sees quite a bit of activity, thanks to the airport’s location near lots of great outdoor activities, so visitors to this Admirals Club will get to experience a little of that inside before the departure of their flights.
