After getting denied access at the Alaska Airlines lounge, I headed on over the the Centurion Lounge in the B terminal at about 11am. I was able to gain access with my Platinum Business Card.
Surprisingly it was not too busy yet. There was still several areas of seating to select, a least for a lone business traveler. Now they did recently expand this lounge and added the bar section, but its still not a very large lounge.
The food was still appealing as well and did not look like it had been ravaged yet by a mob of hungry travelers.
I just decided to hang out around the bar area. This is where the centurion lounge sets itself apart. So often I feel like a cheapskate at most lounges as I have to make sure I ask if my requested drink is included/free or if my drink is an additional cost. Not here, whatever they make taken care of when you get in the door.
The bar wasn’t very crowded being 11am, and the young bartender was willing to make me whatever I asked for. They had a menu of suggested cocktails as well, and I started off with the Housemade IP Yay.
After that, I just told the bartender to make me some interesting Vodka drinks. I have no idea what she was making me, but they were all tasty.
Overall this is a very solid lounge. I could see it easily getting crowded though. The best part was that my gate was in the C terminal, and the Lounge is in the B terminal, but it was only a 5 minute walk.
