TRAVEL IN STYLE: Centurion Lounge

Saturday, September 10, 2016

A few months ago, Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport welcomed it's very own American Express Centurion Lounge. In honor of the lounge opening, American Express hosted an opening night party at the lounge.  Influencers and American Express card holders around the city were invited to a fabulous night out to check out the new venue.  Everyone was offered car service from their homes to the event, which was perfect since the event was during a weeknight. I invited my friend Leena to come with me to the party! 

If you're unfamiliar with the Centurion Lounges, here's a bit of information.  The Lounges offer free access to Platinum card & Centurion members. The lounge is only open to you if you have a boarding pass for that same day.  If you don't own an American Express platinum card, but own another American Express card, you can purchase access to the lounge for only $50.00/day.   Currently only the following airports have a Centurion Lounge:

  • Dallas - DFW
  • Houston - IAH
  • Las Vegas - LAS
  • New York - LGA
  • Miami - MIA
  • Seattle - SEA
  • San Francisco - SFO
Each lounge has a food menu that's curated by a celebrated chef. The Houston lounge menu is managed by James Beard winning chef Jason Yu. Jason Yu is a Houston Chef who owns Oxheart restaurant. At the launch party we were privy to some of Chef Yu's food and it was absolutely delicious. I admit I may have stalked the serving team around the event for more! Don't judge me! There's a full bar in the lounge and the cocktails offered at IAH are curated by mixologist Jim Meehan. Drinks were complimentary during the event, so we were able to sample a variety of cocktails.  There was also live entertainment provided by a local band from Houston!
