y’all, i can’t even tell you what an upgrade this is from the old one. finally out of the dark ages (literally dark and also ancient) and something that matches the Sky Club experience at JFK or ATL (with slightly less crowding). besides the design upgrade (so bright and airy and the views of the ramp and runways), perhaps the most significant change is that it’s now located POST-SECURITY. none of this leaving early so you can run the TSA gauntlet. WINNING.
the Sky Club is located right after security on the left — present your credentials downstairs and go on upstairs to the new amazing space. the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. there is free food available (slightly better than what i’ve seen at other Sky Clubs) and fancy food and adult beverages for order (either via traditional menu/server or on the iPads). the showers, though, well, those were a bit of a mess — there was no soap or body wash. i asked one person who asked her supervisor and they all thought the body creme was a body wash. NOPE :(( so i just pulled the hand soap from the sink area. desperate times call for desperate measures! also, the towels didn’t smell washed (i.e., the smelled like Target?). in any case, at least we *have* showers now!

oh, and for those who keep track of these things (and the club was pretty busy):
