They claim the Club in C will be open "this winter", if I recall.

The print at home BPs for both trips Ive had through ORD this year have indicated the C UC is opening in December (not specifying a year but seeing as this is January...)

A wonderful UC agent in one of the B clubs this afternoon told me she had heard the 26th but there was a betting pool as to the 26th of which month

Thanks for confirming that my memory was correct!

They should have renovated the UC first, then the Polaris at C.

Polaris in C has been open for months. That water is over the dam.

I know. I meant "they should have renovate the Club first, then work on Polaris". Oh well.

Flew up to ORD for a quick overnight last week and was surprised to see the C17 lounge still hadnt reopened. I had some one time passes to burn before 1/31, so we went to the B6 club. At 1600hrs, it took several minutes of walking around and waiting for folks to leave until we could find seats. I imagine a lot of the traffic was TATL pax, but it was uncomfortably packed. The food troughs were mostly picked over and it seemed the club staff were having a difficult time keeping up with the level of traffic.

Discussion of the United Clubs at ORD

Had several agents at ORD tell me yesterday that the new C Club is reopening this Friday, Jan 26, 2018.

Apparently, its kind of temporary, they said its only going to have 200 seats and will not have hot food. (Not sure on perspective for comparison purposes how big 200 seats actually is). Anyway, they said that a completely new and bigger club will open in 2019.

Im passing through on Friday, and just might have to check it out!

Have been hearing the same from several of my ORD UC angels over the past two or three weeks. From what Ive been told, dont expect it to be much different in size than it was before they closed it. Ill be sticking to the existing B6/B18/F8 locations.

This is outrageous! So they close the lounge for several months, and now will open it back up, most likely in the same space, and it's going to be another year until they finally finish construction of the larger lounge? Wow!

Its tough to deal with the constraints of airport construction.

Especially given that I've heard the "permanent" renovation would include another floor. Complete headache for a Chicago municipal installation.

The person I was talking to last night at one of the B clubs said that the C club will be reopening this Friday. It will be a temporary club, but that they're also going to be building an entirely new club in C. Given that it's Chicago, and that it's airport-based construction, I would expect it to be at least 2 years before that project is complete. This person didn't mention anything about hot food (or the lack thereof), but did say that it will not be a full bar in the new C club -- beer and wine only.
