United Opens New Clubs as Part of $100 Million Investment to Transform Lounge Experience 13 Nov 2015
The nearly 5,000-square-foot Atlanta United Club opens today. The club features stunning panoramic views of the airport as well as seating for more than 100 people, giving travelers a comfortable and convenient airport getaway where they can unwind during their journeys. The modern design also features vintage aviation artwork throughout the club, and visiting customers may dine on complimentary fresh-food choices, including yogurt and fresh fruit; muffins in rotating flavors of cinnamon and blueberry; sliced red bell peppers with hummus; rotating seasonal soups; and spicy Bloody Mary trail mix.

The Atlanta club is located between gates 11 and 12 at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport's Concourse T, on the mezzanine level.

Looks pleasant. Confirmation of self-serve alcohol (at some point...) is a major ^!

  • 4900 sq ft space.
I think toasters are being removed from all the clubs as they switch over to the new menu, so I don't think smell is the actual reason. Self-serve bar sounds great.

I'm surprised. Is there any other domestic United Club with self-serve booze?

To me it looks like a hospital waiting lounge.

It looks just like the SEA club. The self-serve bar would be a great addition.

it's open!

The Club is open. Elevator broken at moment. Lovely greeting by staff plus a golf amenity kit. Usual food offerings. Lots of light. No bar that I can see. There is a covered tap and some empty refrigerators so maybe not fully operational just yet. Safe travels everyone.

Looks pretty drab - too much gray. Seems like the same amount of space as the former UC club in ATL?

Much larger, I just stepped in. Great views too, looks like ORD F concourse. They're also giving away golf amenity kits today. Finally, the bathroom situation is much better than the old club. Separate men's and women's, and multiple commodes in at least the men's side.

This lounge is significantly bigger than the old one, and a better layout. Seattle, for instance, is about 6000sf, and it is fairly large.

I like the old-school aviation photographs on the walls.
