The Club at ATL Lounge Bottom Line
The Club at ATL Lounge is a mediocre lounge, maybe average at best. I was not impressed by anything while I was there. International passengers not on SkyTeam flights access this lounge, and I feel that it is very subpar. It is nowhere near as nice as the Delta SkyClub in the same terminal.
The Good: Less crowded than the Delta SkyClub.
The Bad: Absolutely no wow factor. There was no hot food while I was there. The bar was unstaffed and options were not very good.
The Noteworthy: Nothing, sadly.
Accessing the Lounge
There are two ways to access the Club at ATL Lounge. First, and most common, if you have a Priority Pass card, you are allowed to access the lounge. Second, if you are traveling in a premium cabin on a certain airline, or are a frequent traveler, they will extend an invitation to you.
The lounge is located on the second floor of Terminal F, right above the duty-free shops, and across the Delta SkyClub. The entrance is very bright, and the sign makes you think the lounge is of high quality.
The lounge consists of one main seating and dining area. There are many seats, and most of them were open when I was there. Unlike the SkyClub, there are no views of the tarmac. The lounge has fast wifi and is a lot quieter than the SkyClub.
There is a buffet, of sorts, in the lounge. When I was there, there were no hot food options. The best I could see were packaged snacks and yogurt. It. Was. Dismal. I have never seen such an underwhelming lounge in the US. It was truly sad to think that passengers on British Airways, Qatar Airways, and others have to use this lounge.
There is also a bar, which was unstaffed the whole 30 minutes I spent in the lounge. The drinks selection was expansive, but if you wanted anything, you had to get the greeting agent. He was not too thrilled to have to serve customers and did not smile when he was serving drinks to patrons.
This is one of the saddest and most underwhelming lounges I have ever visited in the US. Usually, when you have a bad lounge like this, the service tends to make up for it. This was not the case. The SkyClub “across the street” was so much better. Even though the SkyClub did not have much food, at least they had some hot soups. I was dismayed to be at the Club at ATL Lounge, and I do not have any plans of returning.
