United customers travelling in United Polaris Business Class, the airline’s international premium-cabin travel experience, will now be able to relax and dine before their journey in the new United Polaris lounge at Los Angeles International Airport.
This Polaris lounge features ‘Southern California’ style throughout, including works by local, Los Angeles-based artists Rema Ghuloum, Chris Trueman and Ruth Pastine, and a food and beverage program inspired by the City of Angels. It is conveniently located in Terminal 7 between Gates 73 and 75A, and faces west to capture the city’s vibrant sunset skies.
The United Polaris lounge is the most recent investment United has made at LAX, where the airline recently completed a US$573 million renovation of Terminal 7. Customers can now also take advantage of the recently completed cut-through, a new road that provides a shortcut to avoid the LAX “horseshoe” road around the terminals to help ease their travels. In addition to the Polaris lounge, United recently opened a new United Club in Terminal 7, and offers customers seeking a more upscale experience access to The Private Terminal.
United Polaris Lounge at LAX has a capacity of 140 seats, 272 power outlets and 120 USB ports.
It is fitted with shower suites featuring rainfall showerheads and Soho House & Co’s Cowshed Spa products as well as private daybeds outfitted with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding.
Customers can enjoy a full restaurant-quality experience in The Dining Room before their flights. With a menu that blends international comfort foods developed by Los Angeles-native chef, Tritia Gestuvo, highlights include almond-crusted fish and chips, chilaquiles, Korean bulgogi arancini, freshly crafted sandwiches on La Brea Bakery® bread, flavourful street tacos and house-made cinnamon churros.
In a nod to the innovative cocktail culture of Los Angeles, the lounge features signature cocktails inspired by the city including the Let’s Rumble, made from Cruso Spiced Rum, fresh lemon, prickly pear purée and house-made simple syrup; and the On Sunset, a playful take on the tequila sunrise made from Casa Noble Tequila, Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal and agave nectar.
The United Polaris lounge at Los Angeles International Airport is the fifth Polaris lounge to open. Other United Polaris lounge locations include: Chicago O’Hare International Airport, George Bush Intercontinental in Houston, Newark Liberty International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.
