The Plaza Premium Lounge was announced in partnership with Capital One in 2021 and scheduled for opening the following year, but it’s finally opening just in time for the 2023 holiday season.
The lounge will offer a space for travelers to relax, sit down, and grab a healthy bite to eat and drink. It will be located in Concourse A near gate A34.
The menu showcases local favorites and culinary offerings using locally sourced ingredients and sustainable packages for grab-and-go selections, according to a report from Travel and Leisure. Plus, there will be a variety of options catered to individual dietary needs.
While at the 10,800-square-foot lounge, travelers can enjoy craft cocktails on tap, local beers, coffee and espresso.
Other luxury amenities that will be offered at the lounge include relaxation rooms, shower suites, meeting rooms, wifi, toiletries, and a nursing room.
According to Travel and Leisure, the interior is designed with an original soundscape to make for an ultra-relaxing experience.
The lounge in Denver will be the third of its kind in the U.S. The only other airports in the country with a Plaza Premium lounge are the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and the Dulles International Airport.
Some Capital One customers will get free access to the lounge depending on the type of account they have, and the lounge will be open to any passenger traveling through or out of DIA for a fee.
