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:

Centurion Lounge Denver access
There are a few ways to access Amex Centurion Lounges:
- Those with The Platinum Card® from American Express (review) and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express (review) can access Centurion Lounges with two guests when departing on any airline
- Those with the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card (review) and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card can access Centurion Lounges when departing on Delta
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.
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?
