American Express announced last year that they would be creating a new lounge concept, “The Centurion Studio”, which will be a smaller version of the regular AMEX Centurion Lounge. Last November, AMEX announced the first Studio will open at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. As of early last week, the AMEX Centurion Studio in Seattle is now open.

Unfortunately I am in Europe until early September and therefore won’t be able to provide you with a full review or pictures of the new lounge in Seattle, but just a quick google search will show you AMEX’s new lounge concept.

I’ve written about this Centurion Studio in the past, including:

It seems that my ‘sources’ were correct and the lounge did open early summer 2015. Looking at the first lounge reviews and pictures online, the lounge is quite small but apparently still feel spacious. The studio has your typical AMEX lounge design and even scent! The menu, however, just consists of snacks, soft drinks, and a few alcoholic drinks. The main thing is that there is no full kitchen in the Centurion Studio and therefore there won’t be any full sized meals – just snacks.

Here is the ‘food’ menu, courtesy of American Express:

I was actually able to quickly visit the entrance last week (before the lounge opened) and here’s what it looks like:

As far as other AMEX lounges go, this is the first ‘studio’ lounge and I’m really curious to see where else AMEX incorporates the studio lounge concept. I can’t wait to use this lounge as my primary one at my ‘home’ airport!
