American Express je sodeloval s kuharjema Christopherjem Kostowom in Cedricom Vongerichtenom za še dva salona Centurion

Kuharja Christopher Kostow in Cedric Vongerichten bosta pripravljala menije za prihajajoče Centurion Lounge na letališčih San Francisco in letališču LaGuardia v New Yorku.

American Express je napovedal, da bo na letališčih San Francisco (SFO) in newyorško letališče LaGuardia (LGA) predstavil nove vrhunske restavracijske izkušnje, ki naj bi se vsaka odprla pozneje leta 2014.

Kuhar Christopher Kostow bo izvršni kuhar American Express Centurion Lounge v San Franciscu, Cedric Vongerichten pa bo meni pripravil v New Yorku.

Kostow je trenutno izvršni kuhar restavracije The Meadowood v dolini Napa, ki ima tri Michelinove zvezdice. Leta 2013 je bil kuhar imenovan za enega najboljših kuharjev fundacije James Beard na Zahodu.

Kuhar Cedric Vongerichten je izvršni kuhar Perry St v New Yorku in je sin Jeana Georgesa Vongerichtena.

Trenutno so lokacije Centurion Lounge odprte na mednarodnem letališču McCarren (LAS) in mednarodnem letališču Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) z menijem Scotta Conanta in Deana Fearinga. Na mednarodnem letališču Miami (MIA) naj bi se odprla peta lokacija Centurion Lounge, čeprav datum odprtja še ni znan.

American Express je v razvoju s svojo mrežo Centurion Lounge. Ko smo pred dvema tednoma pravkar odprli lokacijo Charlotte in januarja postojanko Phoenix, je bilo leto 2020 razburljivo leto za člane platinastih kartic.

In zdaj je Amex napovedal, da se bo njegov najnovejši salon v Los Angelesu odprl v ponedeljek, 9. marca. S 13.900 kvadratnimi čevlji in kapaciteto za 530 gostov je največji salon Centurion doslej in dobrodošel dodatek na četrto najbolj obremenjeno letališče na svetu.

Nisem pa navdušen le nad hitrim tempom, s katerim Amex odpira nove salone. (Po LAX-u bodo letos še tri otvoritve: Denver, London in New York-JFK). To je tudi dizajn, ki postaja vse lepši in prefinjenejši.

Prvič sem si ogledal Centurion Lounge v LAX -u na predoglednem dogodku in bil sem navdušen. Preberite, zakaj bi morali biti navdušeni tudi vi.

Rdeče oko

Glavna prednost platinaste kartice American Express so saloni Amex Centurion. Zdaj, ko večina večjih letalskih prevoznikov ponuja dostop do bivalnih prostorov s povezanimi kreditnimi karticami, so številni saloni s sedežem v ZDA zmanjšali svojo izbiro hrane in se običajno – počutijo kot prenatrpano taborišče beguncev, ki bučijo dojenčke in vse ostalo.

V salonih Centurion je hrana slavnega lokalnega kuharja in meni iz bara Jim Meehana. Čeprav ima naša lokalna domača baza SFO natakarje vprašljivih sposobnosti (na žalost – Francis Kelly, odličen natakar, ki je zapustil nekaj let nazaj), je bar meni zelo dober in premišljen. Mnoge pijače so narejene iz znanih okusov, na primer staromoden pire ali bananin daquiri, ki namesto sladkorja uporablja Tempus Fugit.

Pred kratkim sem prišel v salon Centurion v DFW (Dallas) in poskusil nekaj pijač. "Nismo Wertherjevi" mi je padel v oči, vendar je bilo pošteno precej grozno: sladko in razmeroma toplo, ker samotna kocka ledu na sredini ni dovolj razpršila mraza. S skromnimi pričakovanji sem se preselil v rdeče oči in bil osupel.

Koktajl, original Jim Meehana, je kot pitje javorjevega sirupa, pomešanega s hitom rži. Všeč mi je bilo. In takoj, ko sem prišel domov, sem poiskal recept za pripravo.


Udeležil sem se ekskluzivne večerje in razprave za imetnike kartic Amex Platinum z enim najboljših kuharjev na svetu-evo, kakšna je bila izkušnja enkrat v življenju

Ta objava vsebuje povezave do izdelkov naših oglaševalcev in lahko kliknemo na te povezave. Naša priporočila in nasveti so samo naši in jih niso pregledali nobeni našteti izdajatelji. Pogoji veljajo za ponudbe, navedene na tej strani.

Čeprav različne banke in izdajatelji kreditnih kartic ponujajo stvari, kot so zgodnji dostop do vstopnic za koncerte ali ekskluzivno sedenje na prireditvah, nobena blagovna znamka nima lastnega izkustvenega prostora, kot je American Express.

Od prvih dni izdajanja potovalnih čekov v poznih 1800 -ih z uvedbo namenskega oddelka za potovanja leta 1915 - ki obstaja še danes - American Express ohranja svoj vzpon na svetovno finančno moč, usklajen s potovanji in izkušnjami.

Priljubljeni članki

Ker se je povpraševanje po izdelkih "premium" povečalo, ko so kartice postale glavni izdelki v petdesetih in šestdesetih letih prejšnjega stoletja, je American Express močno pristopil k zagotavljanju ekskluzivnih priložnosti članom.

Leta 2017 se je Amex pri tem podvojil s ponovnim zagonom svoje slavne platinaste kartice. Soočen z ostro konkurenco v premijskem prostoru s kreditno kartico JP Morgan's Chase Sapphire Reserve, je American Express okrepil svoje platforme za potovanja in izkušnje.

Poleg tega, da je Amex znatno razširil mrežo letalskih salonov, do katerih lahko dostopajo imetniki kartic, je Amex kartici dodal nove ugodnosti in začel širiti nove programe in priložnosti ter hkrati širiti že obstoječe. Čeprav je bil program nagrajevanja za članstvo še naprej dragocen, je napadel Chase Sapphire Reserve® tako, da je igral na lastno moč.

"[Amex] je ostal zvest svojemu izvoru, in ker smo izvedeli več o članih naše kartice in od njih ter videli njihov okus in zanimanje, smo se tudi mi trudili," je dejala Janey Whiteside, EVP globalnih vrhunskih izdelkov in ugodnosti pri Amexu v intervjuju za Business Insider. "Zdaj v letu 2018 vidimo, da so naši člani kartice Platinum navdušeni nad potovanji, zabavo, vrhunskimi storitvami in so napredovali v tem, kako se tega lotijo."

Ena od strategij je bila uvedba nove ugodnosti "Global Dining Collection" za imetnike kartic. Kot del te ugodnosti je Amex sodeloval s stotinami vrhunskih in znanih restavracij po vsem svetu. Člani kartice lahko pri rezervaciji prek brezplačne storitve strežaja Platinum Card dostopajo do ekskluzivnih mest za rezervacije, ki so na voljo za Amex, in uživajo v stvareh, kot so ugodnosti in darila, ki niso na voljo v meniju.

Poleg tega je Amex razvil globlje odnose z več vrhunskimi kuharji na svetu, hkrati pa razširil svojo serijo "Samo po povabilu". Podjetje vsako leto ponudi okoli 100 teh dogodkov po vsem svetu.

Dogodki Only Invitation, ki so izključni za člane Platinum Card in Centurion kartice, vključujejo stvari, kot so ogledi v zakulisju na koncertih, posebna potovanja, dostop VIP do dogodkov, kot je Velika nagrada Monaka, dostop do koktajlov z voditelji misli in notranjimi osebami. industrije in še več.

O tem, kako Amex Platinum Card ponuja ogromno vrednosti, je dovolj enostavno, da odtehta letno pristojbino. Na nek način vam lahko ultra-premium kartica dejansko pomaga pri varčnih potovanjih (četudi je to naporno), če vam je vsako leto všeč začetna letna pristojbina.

Pomembno je omeniti, da so dogodki samo po povabilu ne podobno ustvarjajo vrednost.

Ti dogodki niso brezplačni in so namenjeni bolj "luksuznemu življenjskemu slogu" ali ljudem, ki uživajo v enkratni življenjski izkušnji. Dogodki lahko stanejo na stotine ali celo tisoče dolarjev, odvisno od tega, kaj so in kaj pomenijo. Vendar pa v zameno za visoke stroške običajno lahko doživite nekaj, kar je resnično nedostopno.

Ker sem že poročal o programu By Invitation Only, vendar ga še nisem doživel, me je American Express povabil na nedavni dogodek v New Yorku, kjer imam sedež. Udeleženci dogodka bi se imeli priložnost pridružiti intimni, zasebni razpravi z zvezdnim kuharjem Massimom Botturo, kasneje pa uživati ​​v degustacijskem meniju z več tečaji in seznanjanju z vinom.

Bottura je mojster Osteria Francescana, restavracije s tremi Michelinovimi zvezdicami v Italiji, ki je bila razglašena za "najboljšo restavracijo na svetu". Bottura, ki je bil predstavljen v prvi epizodi Netflixove "Chef's Table" in v epizodi komedije Aziz Ansari "Master of None", je v kulinaričnem svetu znan po svojem pripovedovanju zgodbe o otroštvu in življenju v Italiji. kuhanje, izražanje tem umetnosti, zgodovine, družine, glasbe itd. Opisan kot "pesnik, pripovedovalec zgodb in umetnik prav toliko kot kuhar", Bottura kurira edinstveno kulinarično doživetje.

Houston naj bi bil dom najnovejšega salona Centurion

American Express odpira še eno podružnico svojega priljubljenega salona Centurion, tokrat na medcelinskem letališču George Bush#8217s. Predvidoma odprt v prvi polovici leta 2016 bo 8.500 kvadratnih metrov veliko popotniško počitek sedma lokacija Centurion Lounge.

Druga mesta s salonom Amex vključujejo Seattle/Tacoma, Miami, San Francisco, New York (LaGuardia), Dallas/Fort Worth in Las Vegas.

Lounge Houston Centurion Lounge bo popotnikom ponudil prostor za delo, čiščenje po dolgem dnevu potovanja, sprostitev z družino in pijačo ter prigrizek.

Meniji se osredotočajo na regionalne specialitete in lokalno pridelane sestavine. Miksolog slavnih Jim Meehan pripravlja recepte za pijačo za salone Centurion, v katerih so tudi lokalni specialni koktajli.

Salon se bo nahajal na terminalu D letališča Houston, ki ponuja neprekinjene storitve za skoraj 200 destinacij.

“ Zaradi vse večjega ugleda Houstona kot svetovne destinacije za poslovna potovanja in prosti čas ter zaradi povečanja mednarodnega števila potnikov na medcelinskem letališču George Bush na rekordnih ravneh, te vrste ugodnosti krepijo izkušnje preudarnih potnikov, ki jih utelešajo člani American Express Card , ” je povedala Lisa Durocher, višja podpredsednica American Express.

Za poslovne potnike morda ni večje letališke oaze kot salon American Express Centurion. While all the Centurion Lounges are currently closed worldwide due to health and safety precautions stemming from the coronavirus outbreak, Amex has reiterated several times that it is committed to reopening the lounges as soon as it safely can, though it has not yet set a date.

But with 12 lounges now built and three more on the way in 2020, when they do eventually reopen, Centurion Lounges can cover you in some of the largest airports in the world, though the Centurion Lounge footprint is heavily focused in the United States.

As the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the opening of several of the upcoming Centurion Lounges, the list of current and announced future locations — including the most-recently updated opening timeframes — is as follows:

Denver (DEN): Scheduled for 2020

London Heathrow (LHR): Scheduled for 2020

New York (JFK): Scheduled for 2020

Centurion Lounge locations cover a number of hub cities for domestic U.S. airlines, with some additional locations (Las Vegas) set in popular locations. While business travelers have different needs from leisure travelers, the Centurion Lounges cater to both groups, though peak times can make it difficult for business travelers to find work space.

How to access Amex Centurion Lounges

The Platinum Card® from American Express is one of six Amex cards that provide access to Centurion Lounges.

Despite their name, you don't need to hold the exclusive American Express Centurion Card to gain access to Amex Centurion Lounges. In fact, you can get into the most comfortable and relaxing spot at the airport with any of the following Amex cards:

Customers holding The Platinum Card® from American Express or the Business Platinum® Card from American Express are allowed to access any of the Centurion Lounges worldwide.

Customers holding the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card or the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card are allowed to access any Centurion Lounge worldwide, provided that they have same-day travel on a Delta flight.

In addition, cardmembers holding the invitation-only Centurion® Card from American Express (colloquially known as the "Amex Black Card") or the American Express Business Centurion® Card can access any Centurion Lounge, and without time limits.

As a general rule, Amex Platinum and Delta Reserve cardmembers can access the Centurion Lounges up to 3 hours prior to departure of their first flight, and at any time between connecting flight itineraries of 24 hours or less. Only invite-only Centurion cardmembers can use Centurion Lounges upon arrival at their final destination.

You may find the enforcement of the 3-hour rule selective based on crowds. Smaller Centurion Lounges, such as Seattle, are frequently overcrowded and more restrictive on entry requirements, while bigger lounges with more space can be more generous with time.

Amex Platinum cardmembers are also entitled to bring two complimentary guests into a Centurion Lounge with them, and may purchase access for additional guests at a rate of $50 per guest, per visit (subject to capacity). Delta Reserve cardmembers don't have complimentary guest privileges, but may bring up to two guests at a rate of $50 per guest, per visit.

For large families, the best deal may be to get an Amex Platinum card and then add authorized user cards to the account. You'll pay a fee of $175 to add up to three authorized users, but each of those users not only get Centurion Lounge access of their own, but two additional complimentary guests as well. So if your family travels often, the cost could easily be worth it.

Let's take a detailed look at each Centurion Lounge, including where you can find them in each airport.

Charlotte (CLT)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Charlotte features over 13,000 square feet of space.

Where to find it: Between concourses D and E on the Mezzanine level.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is a major domestic hub for American Airlines. There are some international flights, but the airport serves primarily to move tens of thousands of passengers around the U.S. for American.

So aside from the Centurion Lounge, you won't find much in the way of premium lounges in Charlotte. American's own Admirals Clubs, while sizable, tend to be crowded, making the Centurion Lounge at Charlotte by far the most upscale option for travelers.

The Charlotte Centurion Lounge opened on February 24, so crowds were a bit hard to gauge before the pandemic temporarily closed everything down. But this is one of the larger Centurion Lounges at more than 13,000 square feet.

Still, many of the seating options in the lounge aren't suited for long stretches with a laptop. There's a large common table if driving a desk is on your list, though you may find the seating in the cafe a bit more conducive to working. Phone rooms can provide privacy and a quiet place to dial into a conference call.

Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in DFW has plenty of food and drink options.

Where to find it: Terminal D, across from gate D12 on the Mezzanine level.

The Dallas/Fort Worth airport housed the largest Centurion Lounge for quite some time, and while it can no longer lay claim to that title, it's still one of the bigger lounges at over 12,000 square feet. There are plenty of semi-private seating options with small desks and power sources if you need a place to work in between flights.

The DFW lounge has one of the largest dining and bar areas amongst the Centurion Lounges with plenty of food and drink options, and you should be able to find a seat even when it's busy. (Don't forget about upgraded complimentary champagne if you hold the Amex Centurion Card.)

You'll also find multiple showers in the Dallas Centurion Lounge to help feel refreshed after a long flight. And DFW is also one of the Centurion Lounges that offers complimentary spa services — they're very popular, so make sure to reserve as soon as you arrive.

Hong Kong (HKG)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Hong Kong has a "lounge within a lounge" for Centurion cardmembers.

Where to find it: Terminal 1, near gate 60.

The Hong Kong Centurion Lounge is the first Amex Centurion Lounge outside the United States, and it faces a lot of competition from Cathay Pacific's world-renowned Hong Kong lounges (some of which are currently closed due to decreasing travel demand from the coronavirus). It's also currently the only Centurion Lounge to feature a "lounge within a lounge" exclusively for Amex Centurion cardmembers.

This lounge gets crowded quickly, so be prepared to table stalk a bit to find the right spot, as the space is less geared toward the business traveler who needs a desk to get some work done. A massive bar welcomes weary travelers in need of a drink, as well as a substantial buffet. Shower services are limited, so put your name on the list early.

Houston (IAH)

It's not hard to find a seat at the Amex Centurion Lounge in Houston.

Where to find it: Terminal D, elevators near gate D6.

The Houston Centurion Lounge is generally on the quieter side. While the airport hosts plenty of international flights, the spread-out nature of the terminals probably dissuades some travelers from making the hike over to the D Terminal to visit this lounge.

As a result, you should usually be able to find an empty seat, as well as a quiet place to work. Showers are available, and there's generally no wait to grab one. Food and beverage offerings are also solid, on par with the rest of the Centurion Lounges (it's an area where they consistently shine).

You won't find spa services here, but you'll find pretty much everything else you're hoping for in a lounge experience. With the possible exception of United's Polaris Lounge, this is the best lounge at IAH.

Las Vegas (LAS)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas is easily the best lounge in the airport.

Where to find it: Concourse D, opposite gate D1.

While Vegas may be filled with every VIP experience imaginable, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas isn't exactly swimming in upscale lounges. In fact, you won't find many lounges at all. That means the Centurion Lounge here is easily the best option.

This Centurion Lounge location features some semi-private workspaces and showers, but you may have trouble finding a seat during peak times. The bar is also on the smaller side, as is the dining area.

Amex recently announced plans to expand the Las Vegas Centurion Lounge from its current size of nearly 9,000 square feet to over 13,400 square feet, an almost 50% increase. The expansion, which is scheduled to be completed in 2021, will also feature additional multi-purpose areas, new private telephone rooms, newly-designed workspace areas and a new reception.

For now, the only sure way to get a seat here is to carry the Centurion Card, as a section in the quietest part of the lounge is reserved exclusively for these elite members.

Los Angeles (LAX)

The main entryway is two floors down from the departures level.

Where to find it: Tom Bradley International Terminal, entrance on the departures level right after security, then take the elevators two floors down.

On March 9, the long-awaited new Centurion Lounge location at Los Angeles (LAX) International Airport opened to the public. While it's currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic like the rest of the Centurion Lounges, when it reopens, the new LAX lounge is likely to be most popular with international flyers, though airside connections built in recent years will allow passengers departing out of Terminals 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 to also make it to the lounge without having to re-clear security.

During our sneak preview a few days before the LAX lounge officially opened, we walked the entire distance from the furthest Terminal 8 to the new lounge, and it's a hike. We timed it at 22 minutes, which means almost a 45-minute round-trip if you want to visit the LAX Centurion Lounge from United's gates in T8.

While there's no walkable airside connection from Terminals 2 and 3, there is a shuttle bus that can get you over to the Tom Bradley Terminal without going out and back through security. But while the ride itself is only five minutes, you'll need to budget more than that. The bus drops you off at the back of the Bradley Terminal, which means another 10-minute walk to get to the lounge. Figure in extra time to wait for the bus and we'd suggest giving yourself 20-30 minutes each way to be safe.

Here are the times as we clocked them to the Centurion Lounge from each LAX terminal:

At nearly 14,000 square feet, this is a spacious lounge, which should help alleviate some of the overcrowding issues Amex has experienced at other Centurion Lounges once it reopens. But in person, it doesn't feel huge because the space is cut into many smaller rooms, which may make finding a seat easier.

The menu at the LAX Centurion Lounge is curated by American Express Global Dining Collection Chef Nancy Silverton. Custom locally-inspired dishes include asparagus egg pie, mozzarella antipasti, mozza meatballs and butterscotch budino, just to name a few.

The buffet at LAX includes panettone french toast and a farro salad with fresh herbs.

As with other Centurion Lounges, the LAX location features private workspaces for business travelers who need a spot to put down their laptop and get some work done before their flight.

Perhaps unsurprisingly given its location, the LAX Centurion Lounge focuses on wellness, with two tranquility rooms to assist travelers arriving in a new time zone.

The idea of the Sunrise room is to provide extra brightness for passengers who need to adjust to an earlier time zone or to "subtly energize you before flight," according to Amex, while the Moonrise room features a "starry sky" ceiling inspired by a planetarium, and is "designed to help usher a sense of nighttime relaxation, whether for napping before takeoff or preparing for an overnight flight."

The LAX Centurion Lounge also features spa services by Exhale, with complimentary services that will undoubtedly be as popular as they are at other Centurion Lounges equipped with spas once the lounges reopen.

Services in the LAX Centurion Lounge spa are complimentary, and will undoubtedly be popular.

And of course, no Centurion Lounge would be complete without a full complimentary bar. Premium wine selections at the LAX Centurion are curated by wine director Anthony Giglio, and specialty cocktails partially inspired by L.A.'s cocktail culture by Centurion Lounge mixologist Jim Meehan.

Miami (MIA)

A recent expansion of the Amex Centurion Lounge in Miami has helped with overcrowding.`

Where to find it: In Concourse D, elevator near gate D12.

American Express completed an expansion of this lounge last year, which was incredibly welcome, as the Miami lounge has notoriously struggled with overcrowding.

However, the vast majority of added space is in bar seating and the dining room. While sitting in the bar area and watching the planes taxi back and forth is a relaxing way to kill some time, you may have to settle for a chair in the dining room if you need to get work done.

Showers are available, which is especially handy if you just got off a long flight from South America. And if you're stressed from a long flight, the complimentary spa service should be your first stop.

New York/LaGuardia (LGA)

Extra time in the Amex Centurion Lounge at New York's LaGuardia is the best relaxation you'll find there.

Where to find it: This is only Centurion Lounge in the U.S. that's outside security, in Terminal B between the B and C concourses on the 3rd floor.

The LaGuardia Centurion Lounge is much smaller than some others, but still scores points for being the best lounge at the airport. While you won't find spa services or showers, you're almost certain to find an empty seat. And, the unique shape of the lounge lends itself to some quieter areas to set up shop with your laptop.

Similar to all the other Centurion Lounges, you'll find upgraded food and beverage options including the signature bar area. You can grab a drink and sit at the counters to get some work done while you watch all the plane activity at LGA.

Because the lounge is outside security, you can visit it no matter what airline you're departing on — you'll just need to leave some extra time to get to the gate. That unique arrangement may be why the lounge isn't usually crowded, with business travelers bypassing the lounge to make sure they can be at their gate when boarding starts.

But if you've ever departed from LGA, you'll understand why extra time in the Centurion Lounge is the best relaxation you'll find there.

Philadelphia (PHL)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Philadelphia is the place to be while waiting for your flight.

Where to find it: Terminal A West, near gate A14.

The Philadelphia Centurion Lounge is a bit on the smaller side, but there's still a good chance you'll be able to find a workspace on your next layover. As with all the other Centurion Lounge locations, the bar and signature food items really do shine, along with some comfortable couches in the dining area.

While there are no spa services at the location, you'll at least be able to grab a shower if needed, and there are also phone rooms if you need a quiet place for a conference call. Unless you have access to the British Airways First Class Lounge at PHL, the Centurion Lounge is the place to be while waiting for your flight.

Phoenix (PHX)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Phoenix shares space with the also-new Escape Lounge.

Where to find it: Terminal 4 across from gate B22 on upper level.

The Phoenix lounge is a small haven in a large airport. While not the smallest Centurion Lounge, you won't find tons of space to spread out. That being said, as one of the newer lounges (it opened on January 6), it's just as enjoyable as the others.

The signature bar area has plenty of room to go along with its great libations. But in a bit of an odd twist, there's a shared space of sorts with the also brand-new Escape Lounge, which is used when the Centurion Lounge gets crowded. There are no spa services and only one shower shared between the two lounges, so you'll definitely need to request it early.

The good news is that seats are plentiful, and the layout lends itself to people being able to find a quiet place to work. You won't find a phone room for quiet calls, but one of the nooks near the front of the lounge may suffice. The Phoenix Centurion Lounge clearly leads the way for premium lounges at PHX.

Seattle (SEA)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in Seattle is the smallest of the Centurion Lounges.

Where to find it: Concourse B, opposite gate B3.

Seattle's Centurion Lounge is tiny. In fact, it's so small that it used to be referred to as the "Centurion Studio." A small expansion a few years ago helped, but this lounge is extremely prone to overcrowding.

There's only one shower, so get your request in early. There are also no spa services in such a small space, but you'll find the food and beverage options totally up to par with Centurion Lounge standards.

The one upside is that a handful of smaller areas that may make it easier to find a quiet spot to work. But with just over 100 seats, don't be surprised to find the Seattle lounge full during peak business hours.

San Francisco (SFO)

The Amex Centurion Lounge in San Francisco features a wine tasting area.

Where to find it: Terminal 3, near gate F1.

There are plenty of premium lounge offerings at SFO, and the Centurion Lounge holds its own. As is typical with the rest of the Centurion Lounges, you'll find a great food and wine spread at the SFO lounge, including a wine wall in the dining area and an open kitchen alongside the buffet.

What truly sets the SFO Centurion Lounge apart is the variety of high-quality food and wine offerings, frequently rotated through the seasons. Also unique to the SFO lounge is a wine tasting area that you should definitely block some time for.

There are plenty of areas in this lounge to find a place to work, and you won't suffer from a lack of comfortable chairs, workspaces or power outlets. Plus, if a shower is what you need to refresh, they have one, but you'll want to reserve early to guarantee availability.

The Obama library is coming to Chicago. Will local residents be displaced?

Complex slated for South Side’s Jackson Park prompts fears that low-income Black residents will be displaced Barack Obama with an outline of the plans for the presidential center in 2017. Over the last six years, the Obama Foundation and the city of Chicago have courted scrutiny over the proposals. Photograph: Nam Y Huh/AP Construction of the Obama Presidential Center is expected to begin this fall in Chicago after years of debate over whether the complex will benefit low-income residents of the surrounding neighborhoods. It will be located in Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago – one of the most historically significant parks in the city, and originally designed for the 27 million visitors to the 1893 World’s Fair. The roughly $500m Obama Presidential Center (OPC) will feature a museum, playground, public library, and an open plaza. Such presidential complexes are considered the physical embodiment of a president’s legacy, and though the OPC will not house the archives of a traditional presidential library, the center is noteworthy for its nod to the Obamas’ roots. Barack started his political career in the area and Michelle grew up in the nearby South Shore neighborhood. But the development, expected to break ground this fall, has not arrived without controversy. Over the last six years, the Obama Foundation, which will fund the OPC, and the city of Chicago have courted scrutiny from two groups: park preservationists upset at a private development being built on public land, and community organizers who fear that low-income Black neighbors will be displaced by rising rents and land speculation. Since 2018, Protect Our Parks has waged legal battles to prevent the park’s construction in Jackson Park, the second largest park on the South Side and home to more than 250 species of birds. The non-profit maintains that the development could be built at an alternative site about two miles from Jackson Park with minimal damage to the environment. “This is a world-class park put together by Frederick Law Olmsted … and now somebody wants to gut it when, in fact, they can put it in a perfectly serviceable [location somewhere else],” said Richard Epstein, a constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago who represents Protect Our Parks. A Protect Our Parks lawsuit against the city was struck down in 2020 by then US circuit court judge Amy Coney Barrett, and the organization’s petition for a supreme court review was recently denied. In April, the non-profit alleged in a second lawsuit that the OPC’s construction would “permanently destroy Jackson Park’s roadways, trees and overall integrity” and that the four federal regulatory reviews the site went through did not sufficiently consider alternative sites. A track and field in Jackson Park is seen at the site of the future Obama Presidential Center in Chicago. Photograph: Jose M Osorio/AP In response, the Obama Foundation said it’s “prepared to defend against this lawsuit from Protect Our Parks” and that it plans to plant more trees on-site than exists now. The spokesperson told the Guardian that “a thorough selection process was conducted and completed regarding the location of the museum campus”. Alderwoman Leslie Hairston, who represents some of the affected neighborhoods, is critical of park preservationists’ attempt to quash the development. “[The Protect Our Parks case] has been determined by a court of law to be uncredible,” Hairston said. Neighbors’ response to the Obama Presidential Center has been cautious. Woodlawn, Washington Par, and South Shore are predominantly Black low-income neighborhoods that have experienced the brunt of housing demolitions, discriminatory lending practices, and disinvestment since the 20th century. For residents used to empty promises, this new development could propel the community forward – or leave it behind. A major flashpoint has been affordable housing. A University of Illinois at Chicago study found that housing prices in the area rose between 2010 and 2017. “While rents vary, there is clear evidence of rising rents in newly renovated and new construction units, which the majority of current renters cannot afford,” researchers wrote. Some residents and community organizers have spent years saying the city, the Obama Foundation and others should reach an agreement that sets jobs aside for locals, protects affordable housing and supports Black businesses. Dixon Romeo, an organizer in South Shore, said some ardent OPC supporters have mischaracterized such calls as opposed to the development itself. “Most folks you talk to understand that the issue isn’t [with] Barack Obama,” said Romeo. “We’re for the Center but not for displacement,” echoed Paru Brown, a coalition organizer with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization. An artist’s impression of the new center. Photograph: Obama Foundation Obama himself came out against these proposals in 2017. “I’m not an outsider here,” he said during a video conference at the time. “I know the neighborhood. I know that the minute you start saying, ‘Well, we’re thinking about signing something that will determine who’s getting jobs and contracts and this and that.’ Next thing I know, I’ve got 20 organizations coming out of the woodwork, some I’ve never heard of before.” Even so, the Obama Foundation will require 50% of subcontracted vendors to be “diverse” and will fund $850,000 in workplace development training for 400 apprentices from the South and West Sides, according to a spokesperson. And in September last year, the Chicago city council passed an ordinance committing millions to redeveloping vacant buildings and lots, funding home improvements and refinancing for homeowners, and assisting low- and middle-income renters in home ownership. Under this agreement, renters also get the right of first refusal if their landlord sells the building. To Alderwoman Jeanette Taylor, who was elected in part because of her advocacy around the OPC, these policy shifts are personal. Before she was elected in 2019, she was an organizer and single Black mother priced out of Bronzeville, another South Side neighborhood. When the OPC was first announced, she feared being displaced from Woodlawn. “I [couldn’t] afford to live anywhere else in the city,” she said. Taylor was essential in the passage of the housing ordinance. Since then, she says her office’s interactions with the Obama Foundation and the University of Chicago, a major presence in the area, have been productive. “We don’t move without talking to each other. It’s a relationship where we’re learning to trust each other.” But getting to that level of transparency was a years-long battle. “I don’t care if it’s the first Black president or Queen Elizabeth or Beyoncé. We got to hold people accountable.”

149 arrested at Huntington Beach birthday party that drew thousands, police say

At least 149 people were arrested in Southern California's Huntington Beach over the weekend after a birthday party invitation went viral on social media and drew "unruly crowds," according to police. The Huntington Beach Police Department said it began making preparations for the "highly publicized event" earlier in the week after it became aware of a video posted on TikTok inviting people to the city's beach on Saturday evening for a large party, dubbed "Adrian's Kickback." A namesake hashtag has since been viewed more than 265 million times on the social media platform.

Photograph: Kathleen Flynn/Reuters As biblical rains pounded Lake Charles in Louisiana last week, beleaguered residents could be forgiven for thinking they have lived in the most unfortunate city in the United States over the past 14 months. Since last summer, the city has been hit by two major hurricanes, a paralyzing deep freeze, and now flooding rainfall that has inundated hundreds of homes. The latest disaster, which saw 15in of rain in just 12 hours, left people navigating the streets by kayak, salvaging what they could from homes still being patched up from hurricane damage and wondering if the past year is an omen of a deepening climate crisis. “We are a very resilient people, we are a very strong population,” said Nic Hunter, Lake Charles’ mayor, whose staff had scrambled to rescue electronics from a flooding city hall. His own children were marooned at school. “But, you know, eventually you do kind of get to a point where you ask Mother Nature: what more can you do to us?” A year of horror for Lake Charles – in south-west Louisiana, between Houston and New Orleans – started when Hurricane Laura slammed into the city in August. Laura was the joint-strongest hurricane ever to make landfall in Louisiana, whipping up winds of up to 150mph and destroying large chunks of the city. “It just annihilated the city. I went there and it was just far worse than I imagined, I was shocked,” said Barry Keim, a climate scientist at Louisiana State University. “Power poles were lying across the road. So were giant oak trees. Roofs were ripped off everywhere. It was unbelievable, catastrophic damage. And I thought, ‘This is going to take them years or decades to recover from this’.” There was no respite for Lake Charles, however, with Hurricane Delta delivering a blow to the city just six weeks later. Further calamity hit in February, when a cold snap that gripped much of the US south caused pipes in Lake Charles to burst, triggering widespread drinking water problems. All of these disasters have occurred on top of the ravages of the pandemic. “In terms of what they’ve been through, the only word is obscene,” said Keim. “It’s just been mind-boggling, insult added to injury again and again. I can’t imagine any location in the US has been hit any worse than Lake Charles.” Keim said it was difficult to put Lake Charles’s year entirely down to the climate crisis, but that the heating of the atmosphere and ocean is spurring stronger hurricanes and more moisture in the atmosphere is making heavy rainfall more likely. The repeated blows to the city have prompted its mayor to call for a “very bold and honest conversation” about climate change in a community where doubts over climate science are commonplace. “Climate change is something that is affecting this community,” said Hunter, a Republican. “I know that phrase can engender a lot of emotions with different people, but it is real and it is happening. I just think it would be ridiculous to say that something is not happening.” Hunter said the climate crisis threatens to push cities like Lake Charles beyond their ability to rebuild and adapt without significant help from the federal government. The city was still waiting on “commensurate” federal aid in the wake of Hurricane Laura, he said, and will need millions of dollars more to upgrade drainage, waterworks and other systems to make them more resilient to future storms and floods. “This has got to be a wake-up call to Washington that Lake Charles and south-west Louisiana is languishing right now,” Hunter said. “We need help. These monstrous events are wreaking havoc upon systems designed 40 or 50 years ago to deal with events that happened once every 100 years. Now we are getting these events happening multiple times over the past 14 months.”

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Scouted/QuinceScouting Report: This linen shirt from Quince isn’t just breathable and stylish, it’s suitable for any occasion, making it a summer staple.This Spring we are finally venturing out of our apartments, and that also means back into our offices (maybe).

Charleston Travel Guide

Charleston had been on our list for quite some time and what better way to visit this quaint Southern city than to celebrate our first anniversary! We ate and drank our way through the city and added a touch of a history with a walking tour.

Friday: We flew Delta from Laguardia direct to Charleston. The only redeeming quality of Laguardia is the Amex Centurion Lounge (even worth visiting it in a different terminal than ours). If you're an Amex member, see if you have access to these limited lounges with full service meals, drinks and comfy seating with free wi-fi. Hopefully they'll open more locations soon with currently only LGA, Miami, Dallas/Fort Worth, Vegas & San Francisco.

After a quick 2 and a half hour flight we grabbed an Uber and headed to our hotel. We booked on Marriott points (thanks NBA!) and were in a perfect location within walking distance of nearly everything we wanted to do. The bar scene in Charleston has everything from high end and stuffy to little dives up hidden staircases. With the close proximity to College of Charleston we were bombarded by drunken college kids almost immediately after leaving the hotel. This was not something that anyone had mentioned about their visits so I was hoping it was just because it was late on a Friday. Our first stop was not even worth mentioning and just a run of the mill sports bar. We didn't really see huge, rowdy crowds at night again as they must've all been at frat parties on Saturday.

In attempt to avoid that scene we made our second stop at a the craft beer bar, Closed for Business. The vibe was much more our pace for "early" in the evening. Nearly everywhere stopped serving food by midnight if not before but I had read that Rarebit served their breakfast menu late night. We made it there next just in time to have quite possibly the best bacon, egg and cheese sandwich of our lives on Texas toast. Their lunch and dinner menus looks just as tasty with an array of Southern favorites served at this mid-century modern dream and I would definitely go back.

Saturday:We had a lunch reservation but some time before to explore. Our hotel was in walking distance of nearly everything we wanted to do so we headed south on Meeting Street towards Husk. On the way we stopped for coffee at a cafe that had the prettiest oak trees covering their outdoor tables. The space felt a little corporate as its attached to the hotel next door but it was a good first stop to start the day.

One of the most hyped restaurants that you will read about when researching Charleston is definitely, Husk. If you are planning a trip, I would suggest making a reservation far in advance or don't expect to get seated without a long wait time. The menu changes almost daily and all of the food is sourced from Southern farms as shown on their board when you enter. Their James Beard award-winning chef, Sean Brock, is quoted on their website saying "if it doesn't come from the south, it's not coming through the door". We ordered shrimp and grits, fried chicken and fried pig's ear lettuce wraps. Every bite was southern cooking at its best, delicious and not concerned about the calories.
