The newest American Express Centurion Lounge is now open at New York’s LaGuardia airport.

Travelers can enjoy locally-inspired dining from a celebrity chef, sip cocktails created by a star mixologist, plug into an outlet and hook up to high speed Wi-Fi to catch up on work or surf the internet, and hammer out travel details like restaurant reservations, hotel bookings, and plane tickets with the lounge’s Member Services personnel.

People with a Platinum or Centurion American Express Card receive unlimited complimentary entry to Centurion Lounges, along with their immediate families or up to two travel companions. Other folks who have American Express credit or charge cards can buy one-day passes for $50.

American Express prepaid cardholders should be aware that they are not eligible for Centurion Lounge access unless they also have a credit or charge card with American Express.

LaGuardia Centurion Lounge features 5,000 square feet of luxury

The Centurion Lounge cuisine is created by Cedric Vongerichten, the Executive Chef at New York City’s Perry St. Perry St is one of the Jean-Georges empire of restaurants, serving high-concept American Nouveau dishes. Cuisine is seasonally and locally inspired.

Drinks are by famed mixologist Jim Meehan, of Manhattan’s PDT cocktail bar. The wine selection is curated by sommelier Anthony Giglio.

Private, noise-buffering workspaces feature plentiful outlets by every seat and free high speed Wi-Fi, and American Express Member Services staff is available to provide assistance with credit card questions, travel services, and reservations.

This is the third Centurion Lounge to debut; the first two are located at Las Vegas, Nevada’s McCarran International Airport and at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas. Two more Centurion Lounges are now in the construction phase, in San Francisco and Miami.

New Lounge boosts effort to revitalize LaGuardia

LaGuardia airport is in the middle of a campaign to improve the facility, built in 1962. Lysa Scully, general manager of the airport, said the City of New York is committed to modernizing LaGuardia and has put $3.6 billion behind the effort to build a new Central Terminal building. “The addition of The Centurion Lounge will help make our airport a world-class facility for travelers, and we appreciate American Express for being a partner in this endeavor,” Scully said.
