American Express Opens Largest Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta (ATL)

Today American Express has opened the largest centurion lounge at Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). The lounge is over 26,000 square feet (previously biggest is 15,000 square feet) and is located near gate E11 in concourse E.

  • Modern, Global Soul Food: Chef Deborah VanTrece, James Beard Award semifinalist and owner of local Atlanta restaurants Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, Oreatha’s At The Point and La Panarda, brings her culinary expertise and flair to the lounge’s menu offerings.
  • The Centurion Network’s First Whiskey Bar: Celebrating the rich history of American whiskey, The Reserve by American Express is the first dedicated whiskey bar in a Centurion Lounge with a cocktail menu curated by award-winning mixologist, Jim Meehan.
  • Nature-Inspired Interiors: Embracing Atlanta’s reputation as “the city in the forest”, the lounge’s art and design feature commissioned artwork from local artists and a relaxing ambiance accentuated by a 50-year-old olive tree and a 3,850 square foot custom light sculpture.
  • Outdoor Terraces: Offering views of the airfield, visitors can enjoy multiple landscaped outdoor seating areas (a first for the Centurion Network!) which are equipped to enjoy year-round.

Does “largest” refer to the square footage or the volume of people in line?

Been waiting for this lounge for years!

What a let down.

Just stopped by at 6:30pm on Friday night and practically every seat was taken. Also so much of the food and drinks were empty and not being refilled in time. And as soon as some protein returned to the buffet line, a crowd forms. It was like the Golden Corral when they bring out the fresh meats.

What little food they had was pretty tasty and good representation of soul food.

I just can’t imagine how crowded this place is going to be on busy times.

After 15 min we left and went to the small AA lounge which was practically empty.

I think in the future I’d rather spend money out of pocket eating somewhere else than be at the crowded Cent lounge.

ATL, outside of the Minute Suites, might have the worst Priority Pass Lounge in the U.S., so I expect this to be crushed.

When flying through ATL I’m usually on Delta so there would also be Sky Club access.

absolutely agree. worst lounger ever. I hardly get to use it since there’s always a line and a 2-hour wait.

With all these new lounges, hopefully this will reduce crowding overall. I continue to be shocked at how packed lounges are today versus pre-pandemic. When lounges are crowded, it’s uncomfortable and not relaxing. I say open as many as possible until we’re back at pre-pandemic occupancy rates!!!

If I’m flying through ATL, I’m probably flying Delta already. Might as well go to a Sky Club

Sorry Amex but that doesn’t justify me holding a coupon book, even with a Schwab appreciation credit.
