American Express and MAG USA have opened The Centurion Lounge and Escape Lounge at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona.

Located in Terminal 4 and spanning more than 9,500ft2 (880m2), the lounges – for Platinum Card and Centurion Members – are side by side, with a shared entrance and separate reception areas.

The lounges will feature Mexican cuisine-inspired food menus curated by chef Doug Robson, the executive chef and co-owner of Phoenix’s top Mexican restaurants Gallo Blanco and Otro Cafe. The menus will include eggs and chorizo, tortilla soup, pollo asado with a tamarind glaze, roasted cauliflower with harissa and a masala galam yogurt sauce, and more.

In addition to the premium food menu from Robson, the Centurion Lounge will offer Platinum Card and Centurion Members and their guests: access to a complimentary full bar with custom cocktails and handpicked wine selections; floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive internal and external views; and dedicated workspaces, power outlets, private phone areas, comfortable seating and access to high-speed wi-fi.

“The Centurion Lounge in Phoenix will also feature our new mobile check-in capability within the US American Express mobile app, which is now live at nearly all of our Centurion Lounges,” said Alexander Lee, vice president of loyalty and benefits at American Express.

Platinum Card and Centurion Members receive complimentary access to the Escape Lounge as part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection. Non-members can also access the Escape Lounge for a fee.

The new Escape Lounge will offer visitors premium amenities including: a local chef-curated menu featuring premium food options and seasonal changes; Phoenix-inspired cocktails; and local wines, beers and spirits, and coffee. It will also feature a silent digital library, with noise-cancelling Bose headphones and free access to over 7,000 publications from more than 120 countries, courtesy of PressReader, and children’s activity packs.
