Best SkyClub in ATL?

Will be passing through ATL on Sunday and have a massive 4 hr 38 min layover to kill. Have only been to the SkyClub in NRT once, and never really bothered with it on domestic trips. Myself and 2 companions each hold DL Amex cards, so might purchase a couple of single visit passes. I'm open to traveling to any concourse, but from the looks of past flights will most likely be arriving in D and departing out of A. Thanks!

The F SkyClub has the outside Sky Deck, and a variety of seating options. It has the normal SkyClub food, and also has other food for purchase. Out the windows you can see a planes from a wide variety of International airlines including some planes like the A380 you rarely see at most domestic airports. It also has showers if you're so inclined.

I agree with the suggestion to go to the F SC. If it seems crowded, try going way back beyond the bar area or alternatively upstairs (no elevator). However, my favorite indoor area is to the right as you enter.

In addition, I've always liked A Centerpoint (even though it was showing its age), but it's closed on weekends. I liked the comfy more traditional living room furniture as well as the agents there.

The E and F clubs should have enhanced hot food items like chicken, rice, meatballs, pasta, BBQ, etc.

The F Sky Club is probably the best. It has an outdoor Sky Deck with chairs and bar-type seating areas. With a layover that long, you can comfortably visit any of the Sky Clubs.

Note the difference between a SC single admission and a day pass. Sometimes they're priced the same and in other cases the day pass costs about twice as much.

Thanks to all! Will most likely checkout the SkyClub in F, as I'd planned to take one of my companions over to F as she has not seen it since it opened. I'll also have an International Flight in May so will probably use it again then too.

The showers in the F club are pretty nice. Depending on your timing and route that can be a great way to refresh and pass the time.

+100 ^

It still looks like a Crown Room

The Club at ATL (NOT a SC but it is in PP) is also nice, although obviously they can't help in DL IROPs.

Im a big fan of the one in E. Not sure if its the case, but it feels way bigger than F. I never have a problem finding a place to settle in. F is nice too, but E feels more spacious. Only draw back to E is that it is a bit of a hike from the center of the concourse and is kind of out of the way. At least I think so.

In general, try to avoid the one at B-10, it is way too small! After that, the best Club is probably the one closest to your arrival or departure gate. Unless you are really into making a Grand Tour of ATL

Back in December, when DL-brand AMEX had the "2 free top shelf" deal, I toured about 4 SC's before becoming worried I might not find my gate through the haze. (they didn't track your imbibing electronically, so 2/SC) And I have to say, all the SC's start to look better after several 23 year old Zapaca rum doubles.

To stay OT, I vote for F.

F has the feel of "I'm going to Europe"

E has the feel of "I'm going to Hawaii, SFO, South America, Caribbean"

IMO

Of course this is completely illogical

Has anyone been in the ATL F Sky Club recently? I am curious if they still have the expanded food options like JFK T4 during lunch time? such as hot chicken, vegetables, pasta etc.

I was in LAX Sky Club last week during mid day travel and was sorely disappointed. LAX had hot soup (poblano cheddar=yum!) but no other hot food items. They had a selection of cucumber/cheese sandwiches and that was about it it. UGH.

I have 3.5 hour layover tomorrow in ATL and curious what to expect.
