Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson

The Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a nearly 26,000 square foot space that’s located in Concourse E near gate E11 and features awesome views, yummy food, and a whiskey bar. The new lounge opened February 14.

“The new Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will serve travelers in one of the airports our Card Members visit most,” said Audrey Hendley, President of American Express Travel. “It features amenities we know travelers enjoy, like outdoor terraces, and plenty of space to relax, along with local touches infused throughout the menus and design, that guests will remember long after their trip.”

The new lounge is not only large, but it’s beautiful too. Inspired by Atlanta’s reputation as “the city in the forest” and its abundance of trees, the main seating area features a 50-year-old olive tree and a 3,850 square foot custom light sculpture that represents a forest canopy.

You’ll also find multiple outdoor terraces, along with landscaped seating areas equipped with heaters and fans for year-round use. Artwork from local artists can be found throughout.


The new lounge features a locally-inspired menu from Atlanta-based Chef Deborah VanTrece, owner of local Atlanta restaurants Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, Oreatha’s At The Point and La Panarda.

Using flavors and techniques she discovered traveling the world as a former flight attendant and enhanced by her own family food traditions and fresh, local ingredients, the custom menu includes Black Eyed Pea Biryani, Za’atar Grilled Chicken Thighs with Green Tomato Chimichurri, and Twisted Soul Salad with Strawberry Peppercorn Vinaigrette. Additionally, there will be a dedicated food and beverage station with gluten free and vegan options, including protein bites, salads, smoothies, and immunity booster juice shots.

In addition to the delicious food, you’ll also find The Reserve by American Express — the first dedicated whiskey bar in a Centurion Lounge.

The cocktail menu, curated by award-winning mixologist Jim Meehan, features five specialty whiskey cocktails, including Drink a Peach with peach flavored whiskey and bitters and Mayme, Tailored, highlighting an American whiskey with ginger beer. Guests can also choose from over 20 classic and new American whiskeys.

Guests will find signature Centurion Lounge amenities, including dedicated workstations and phone booths, premium restrooms and shower suites, several seating areas and access to complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.


So who can visit the Centurion Lounge at Hartsfield-Jackson?

In order to access Centurion Lounges, including the new ATL location, you must hold a select American Express credit card — like the Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express — which both carry steep annual fees.

Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card members will also get complimentary access to the Centurion Lounge when flying on a flight marketed or operated by Delta Air Lines. These cards also carry pretty hefty annual fees of $650/year.

Eligible American Express Card Members can find a lounge at the Global Lounge Collection website, or by using the American Express app. They can also begin their check-in process for select Centurion Lounges through the mobile check-in tool within the American Express app.
