The Amex Centurion Lounge network will have a new location as of next week!

Amex Centurion Lounge Denver (DEN)

The Amex Centurion Lounge Denver International Airport will be opening shortly, making it the 14th lounge in Amex’s network. Let’s talk about what we know about this new lounge.

Centurion Lounge Denver opens February 1

While the Denver Centurion Lounge was first announced back in 2018, it will finally become a reality shortly. The Amex Centurion Lounge Denver will be opening as of Monday, February 1, 2021.

Centurion Lounge Denver size

The Denver Centurion Lounge is nearly 14,650 square feet, making it the second largest Centurion Lounge location, after the one at New York JFK. The lounge seats over 300 passengers, so that’s a really good size.

Centurion Lounge Denver location

The Denver Centurion Lounge is located after security in Concourse C, just past gate C46, on the mezzanine level. While Concourse C houses Alaska, Southwest, and Spirit, this will easily be accessible to all passengers traveling out of Concourses A, B, and C, via the airport’s train system.

Centurion Lounge Denver hours

The Denver Centurion Lounge will initially be open daily from 7AM until 3PM. Presumably hours will be extended significantly in the future, but for now the lounge has limited hours given the current travel environment. Presumably this also makes sense in terms of staffing, so that they only need one shift working per day.

Centurion Lounge Denver amenities

The Denver Centurion Lounge features some unique locally-inspired amenities you won’t find at other locations, including:

  • A craft beer bar, which will feature a rotating selection of local brews
  • Design features reminiscent of Denver’s neighboring Rocky Mountains
  • Immersive gaming options, including pool, shuffleboard, connect four, checkers, and more
  • A live cooking station

Centurion Lounge Denver food & drinks

The Denver Centurion Lounge’s executive chef is Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, who is a James Beard Foundation award-winning chef and local Colorado restauranteur.  The menu is inspired by Northern Italy, and there will be “hot, fresh, locally sourced and health-conscious bites” at the live action station. Here’s a sample menu:

In terms of drinks, the selection has been created by mixologist Jim Meehan and wine director Anthony Giglio, and you can expect wine, beer, cocktails, and more. Here’s a sample drink menu:

Here’s a video about the menu at the lounge:

Here are some pictures American Express has shared of the new Denver Centurion Lounge:

Centurion Lounge Denver access

There are a few ways to access Amex Centurion Lounges:

In all cases, Centurion Lounge access is limited to three hours before departure. The exception is if you’re connecting, in which case you can access the lounge earlier (should your connection be more than three hours).

On top of that, those with the Amex Centurion Card can access Centurion Lounges, and they can use the lounges on departure or arrival, with no time limit.

Bottom line

The Centurion Lounge is a really exciting addition to Denver International Airport. The airport otherwise doesn’t have any great lounges, so this should really stand out. Best of all, at over 14,000 square feet this lounge is quite large, and shouldn’t get too crowded.

Anyone excited to check out the Centurion Lounge Denver?

    These hours make the lounge really annoying. Most of the times that I fly through Denver, it ends up being in the late afternoon or evening.

    @dee It makes some sense, as Concourse C doesn't have any lounges yet (A has the Sky Club and BA it seems, B has the United Clubs). Likely that's also where DEN had space available to them, at least prior to the concourse extensions being complete.

    Either way, I'm looking forward to it! I don't fly through Denver often, and when I do, it's during the few times I fly on Southwest, so hopefully I get to try it out one day!

    not sure why they picked the terminal with the lesser known airlines?? If the food is anywhere near as good as Frasca-Boulder it will be great.... nice and esp like seeing Scarpetta on the wine list,

  4. Robert Spengler Guest

    We will be flying through Denver on the 5th and have about an hour and a half. Since our gate is on the C concourse, we will stop in and have breakfast on our way to our departure gate on the B concourse.
    Nice to have it open. United's lounge is down to the bare bones in terms of offerings. Maybe this will up their game a bit going forward and after Covid.

    @MattR - Last I heard (maybe last spring) was that it was still under design. As Centurion showed, these projects don't move quick at DEN. I'm pretty sure the contract was signed/approved by City Council (who controls all such contracts there) so unless there was some exit clause, it should still be coming. Someday.

    I'd actually done open records requests for the contract on the Centurion to try and see what the delay was,...

    I'd actually done open records requests for the contract on the Centurion to try and see what the delay was, but it yielded nothing useful. Maybe if I'm bored someday I'll do the same here.

    I saw the signs up for its construction last time I was at DEN but I completely forgot about it til now. Unfortunately, I usually fly out of A on DL, so going straight to C from TSA then back to A is a bit time consuming but could be worth it compared to the SkyClub.

  7. Matt Guest

    Any chance they are doing a soft-opening this weekend before the official opening on Feb. 1? I have 4 hours at DEN tomorrow.

  8. MattR Guest

    @DENDAVE I thought the PP lounge idea was dead. That was announced around the same time as the Centurian, but was then removed from the pipeline shortly thereafter.

    Also, agreed on the location. It's not more than 10-15 minutes from anywhere in the airport unless you catch a big line for the train.

  9. DENDAVE Gold

    Excited to see it finally open. Hopefully it was worth the wait, which it appears it will be.

    To @Daniel's point, the dot is a little off (or the shading of the expansion is), but regardless it's not a far walk from the train. As far as other concourses go, I think it would only be annoying if your gate was at the far end of one of them which would involve a train...

    DEN had a Priority Pass lounge in the works and United, I think, had plans for an additional lounge in A (both in the Center Core above the trains, I think). Not sure where those stand, but pretty sure no construction started before COVID and I'm sure they're in no rush now.

    It's great to see it finally opening, but the hours are disappointing. I'll be flying out on the 10th, but it'll be closed before I get to the airport. Even worse, I'll miss Miami on the return for the same reason.

  11. Tom Guest

    Great addition. Denver didn’t have much in terms of lounges — UA doesn’t even plan to add a Polaris which is disappointing so this is much needed.

  12. Bgriff Diamond

    Exciting, but given how massive Denver Airport is, it's something of a hike to visit if you're flying out of a different concourse.

  13. Daniel Gonzales Guest

    It looks like that diagram came from Amex but it's partially incorrect. The tie-in point for the new C-east expansion begins immediately after the concessions subcore where the Amex lounge is located.
