If you’re flying through Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX), I’ve got some good news for you: The Club at PHX, a new pay-as-you-go lounge just opened its doors on April 9th. Operated by Airport Lounge Development, this new space is the only shared-use lounge at PHX, which means you don’t have to be a member of a frequent flyer program or a ticketed premium cabin passenger to get access. All you need is $35 and a smile, although I hear the smile requirement is waived if you have exact change.
Located in the B concourse of Terminal 4, the club offers standard lounge amenities like free wifi, computer work stations with printers, snacks, and booze. There’s roughly 3,000 sq. ft. of room for upwards of 90 passengers at a time. It’s not enormous, but it’ll do the job if you don’t want to sit at the gate with the horde of elderly that flock to and from Phoenix in the wintertime.
The club also serves as the British Airways First Class lounge and between 3:30pm-7:30pm they offer exclusive items to those BA flyers. In addition, while it’s not a member-based lounge, you can use your Priority Pass, Priority Pass Select and Lounge Club memberships at The Club.
Here’s what you can expect in terms of food and drink at The Club at PHX:
ALD’s five other lounges include: The Club at DFW, located in Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport; The Club at LAS in Terminals 1 and 3 in Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, The Club at SJC, located in Mineta San José International Airport and The Club at ATL, located in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
