As far as their U.S. locations go, as of now they have lounges in Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle, and they’ll be opening a lounge in Philadelphia in the coming months.

As I first wrote about in January, Amex announced that they would be opening a new 8,000 square foot Centurion Lounge In Hong Kong this year. This is the first international Centurion Lounge that they’re building from scratch (meaning that hopefully it’s better than some of their other international ones), and it will be located in Terminal 1.

Amex is typically very secretive about when their lounges open. I’ve been carefully tracking when the Philadelphia and Hong Kong lounges will open, and every time I’ve asked I have been told that they have nothing to report yet. Typically they make an official announcement just a week or two before lounges actually open.
The Hong Kong Centurion Lounge was supposed to open in the third quarter, which ends in a few days. It looks like that’s not actually happening, though now we know when it will open.
Per a marketing email shared by FlyerTalk member forumpersona999, the Amex Centurion Lounge Hong Kong will be opening in October 2017. We don’t yet know whether that means a few days from now or four weeks from now.
The email also mentions what can be expected in terms of the food & drink selection:
- Culinary Delights: Special a la carte menus designed for Centurion exclusively by Executive Chef Lau Yiu Fai from Michelin two-star Yan Toh Heen at InterContinental Hong Kong.
- Wine & Dine: Full premium bar with signature cocktails created by mixologist Jim Meehan of PDT in New York.
I’ll be passing through Hong Kong in early November, so should hopefully be able to check it out by then. I’m excited to see what it’s like, but something tells me it can’t compete with Cathay Pacific’s incredible Pier First Class Lounge.
