American Express, fresh off the announcement of their new Heathrow Centurion Lounge, set up a Pop-up Centurion Lounge in London’s Covent Garden this weekend (through Sunday!). I sent some correspondents to cover the breaking news…and to taste the complimentary cocktails!
I had the chance to catch up with DFW Centurion Lounge Executive Chef (and Dallas culinary legend) Dean Fearing about food, upcoming foodie destinations, and his prized guitar collection!
Celebrity chef Dean Fearing surprised guests at the DFW Centurion Lounge with lovey snacks and some tasty gifts!
American Express is launching a Centurion Lounge at London Heathrow airport, and to celebrate they’re doing a pop-up Lounge in Covent Garden!
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of American Express’s Centurion Lounges (Here are my Dallas and New York LaGuardia Centurion Lounge reviews). I find the level of service and the various amenities to be a cut above even the nicest airline lounges in the USA.
As of today their most recent addition to the lounge network is now open at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport! Located in Terminal D (the main international terminal for everyone except United), the lounge retains the feel and decor of the rest of the lounges in the network, as you’ll see in the post!
Shower. Massage. Champagne. A Porsche to drive you to your plane.
All of these things are found at the best airport lounges in the world. The lounge visit is a crucial part of the travel experience for me, particularly when traveling internationally. There’s just something about having a quality meal, a few quality beverages, and a relaxing shower or massage that gets my mind right before I fly.
I get asked pretty frequently to talk about my favorite lounges in the world. I have not visited all of the great lounges out there but I’ve been to quite a few. Let’s take a look at my five favorite lounges and then I’ll tell you about some lounges I want to visit next.
