Charleston International Airport, gateway to the Low Country and historic city of Charleston, has its first luxury airport lounge.
The Club CHS is now open on the second level of the airport’s main concourse and features about 3,000 square feet of lounge space and 52 seats, with plans to expand to about 4,000 square feet and 83 seats in the next few months.
The lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the airport tarmac, is decorated with images from acclaimed Charleston photographer Nicholas Holzworth, and features contemporary Southern cuisine from local chef Bob Waggoner.
Airport Lounge Development (ALD) operates the new Charleston lounge, which follows the blueprint of other ALD lounges by offering various “zones” for productivity, privacy, and relaxation, resting, replenishing, and refreshing, as well as a cell-phone free area. A full-service bar, with cocktails curated by mixologist Kathy Casey, will be available as part of the planned expansion of the lounge this fall.
Priority Pass members can access The Club CHS for free; the walk-in fee is $40.
ALD has several more Club lounges scheduled to open in 2019, including at Buffalo Niagara International Airport, Miami International Airport, Norman Y Mineta San Jose International Airport, and Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
