New United Club Terminal C ORD

The current United Club at C16 isn't great and was cannibalized by the Polaris lounge. For the last couple months signed has been up on the OTHER SIDE of Gate C16 that a new United Club is currently under construction. Does that mean the Polaris Lounge will get expanded again and take the rest of the existing club space and does that also mean that the new United Club will be bigger/more service? Anyone with details know anything on the new one?

This is dated info. But C UC is supposed to be expanded significantly - up and sideways. The current UC was never supposed to be a permanent solution post PL expansion. Adding facilities for hot food and of course more seating, larger bar area. No further expansion to PL. Obviously delayed.

Garretts caramel popcorn and Chicago mix are one of the great joys in life!

The bagel guillotine has a metal blade in the center (evidenced by the warning). However, it is also encased within a plastic casing that prevents accidental direct contact with the blade. In order to turn the blade into a weapon, one has to somehow remove the plastic casing.

Besides, terrorists don't have access to United Clubs.

I fly through O'Hare weekly. The United lounges have taken a nose dive from an already lower standpoint versus comparable Delta and AA offerings in the midwest.
It seems like ever since the Polaris lounge reopened all the offerings have suffered in the standard UC lounge.
Good bye mini hot dogs, microwaves burritos, mozzarella-tomato-basil cups, random sweets, etc...
Again they weren't starting from a high point but it's sad how much they've skimped on the offerings.

…But they did have chocolate covered strawberries and heart-shaped cupcakes for Valentine’s Day today. A nice one-off…But still a one off.

Just to answer this question myself, I really like the spread during my recent visit, which included high quality sandwiches and salads.

















Plus, there are new espresso machines which are much better than the previous ones.




But no more Chicago-style hot dogs...

Did you notice, are they still using illy coffee? Don't see any signage in your pic, but maybe it was just out of the shot?

I wonder if these are the new FLiK-managed machines (referenced recently in the EWR thread), and if we'll start seeing them in other clubs.

Did you try the rinse? I'm not familiar with that coffee drink; quite curious about it.
