The Club at ATL, the “other” ATL lounge

For those of you out there with a Priority Pass membership, you’ll be happy to know that when you’re traveling through Atlanta, you have an option.  Yes, 1 option.  And it’s kinda far away.  BUT.  It is staffed by the most friendly people in Atlanta and they have a full, free, open, heavy pour bar.

All the way down in Concourse F, in a land far, far away from all the other concourses, lies the sole Priority Pass lounge in the LaToya Jackson International Space Port and Nail Salon Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. The good news is that via the train, you can get from most places in the airport to the F concourse in about 7-10 minutes.

When we left the Delta Sky Club we decided to pass over to the Club at ATL to give you , our loyal readers, a review.  We were greeted by two of the most amazing women at the front desk who could not have been happier to see us.

As soon as we walked in we noticed the seating areas and snacks.  I’m told it’s not usually this dirty, and as I looked around I saw a bunch of kids with popcorn so I’m inclined to believe them.

However, a little more investigation noticed that closing the lounge for a few hours and doing a deep clean might be in order…

I will say however, that this lounge has one of the most complete and complex bar selections I’ve ever seen in any airport lounge, anywhere.  All free with no upcharge (you hear that Delta?!)

The lounge overlooks the long, winding security lines in Concourse F, which I find oddly therapeutic.  I also find it comical, in just thinking how much easier this could be for those people if they used TSA PreCheck.  Luckily today was a pretty slow day at ATL.

Food options were pretty slim, but at least there were a few options

All in all, I think this lounge has a lot of potential.  The food selection wasn’t TOO bad, the drinks and the bar were the best of any lounge I’ve seen domestically.  But what made this lounge the best was the people.  Everyone was happy, friendly, and willing to help.  Most lounge employees that I’ve seen are disconnected and don’t really focus on giving that great of an experience, but I would happily return back to this lounge next time I’m passing through Atlanta.
