American Express continues to expand its network of lounges with the grand opening of its largest Centurion Lounge at the world’s busiest hub, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, on February 14. The sprawling space, nearly 26,000 square feet in size, is designed to be a haven for travelers, offering a taste of Atlanta with a locally-inspired menu by Chef Deborah VanTrece. The lounge boasts unique features such as outdoor terraces with airfield views, a bespoke whiskey bar named The Reserve by American Express, and a design inspired by Atlanta’s moniker, “the city in the forest.”

The lounge’s aesthetics pay homage to the lush greenery of Atlanta, featuring a 50-year-old olive tree and a custom light sculpture that mimics a forest canopy. Artwork by local artists and a modern take on global soul food by VanTrece add to the lounge’s appeal, ensuring travelers a memorable pre-flight experience. Notably, The Reserve by American Express introduces travelers to a world of fine whiskey, offering signature cocktails and a selection of over 20 classic and new American whiskeys.

Perhaps the addition of this lounge to ATL’s E terminal will ease some of the pressure on Delta’s nine SkyClubs at the airport. It may also steal some business from one of the world’s finest airport bars — One Flew South.

This new lounge is part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection, which can be accessed using a number of high end Amex cards including the Amex Platinum, Delta Amex Reserve (when traveling on Delta), and Amex Business Platinum.
