Question: What Should You Tip in An American Express Centurion Lounge?

Spa treatments, fine wines, food prepared by Michelin-starred chefs: it’s all free at American Express Centurion Lounges. But what should you tip for those services?

One Reddit user was chastised by the bartender at the LAS Centurion Lounge for only leaving a $5 tip for the two drinks he had during his stay.

Was he in the wrong? Or was the bartender out of line? When the services are free, how much do you owe in fees by way of gratuities? Nothing? The standard 15% to 20%? More?

Let us know in the comments’ section.

Why is this even a question? Another bizarre US thing? A free drink is a free drink. Period.

Maybe a buck per drink max.

The airline lounges (and also the Amex Centurion lounges employ their staff (or contract the staff to outside vendors). You're not paying for the booze, so it would be 20%of zero. I think if an employee/waiter gives good service, tip them. $5 for two drinks seems like a decent tip to me. However, my experience in Las Vegas is that LAS is not a "normal' city and many of the people there are going to try and con the unsuspecting. In short, tip if you want; don't tip if you don't want.

I dont like the idea of having to tip unless I feel like it, and usually do, but its up to the employers to pay their staff a decent salary, I have notice now that in a lot of occassions, the tip suggestion is already given when getting the bill, wont go back to those places
