Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club Concourse B at Atlanta Hartsfield

As I had about three hours between my flights at Atlanta airport, I headed from concourse D where my flight from Detroit arrived to concourse B where my flight to Miami was departing from using the automated train. There, I made my way into Delta Sky Club lounge. Past the entrance door, there was a staircase and a pair of elevators. I decided to take the stairs which in the end it turned out to be quite a hike.

On the lounge floor, there was a long hallway leading to the reception. After being welcomed and checked in by the staff, she asked me if I had visited the lounge before. After saying no, she proceeded to give me a brief overview of the lounge. She also mentioned that it was, at the time of my visit, the latest Sky Club.

Lounge Overview

The lounge attendant’s description went as follows: “There are reading materials on the left, and the restrooms on the right. The men’s restroom is the one further down. Also, there is a printer in the back of the lounge in case you need it. Everything else is in the middle.”

Now, let me expand on that a bit.

Right after entering, there is the buffet area in front of you, behind which there is the bar that Sky Clubs are well known for. In the bar area, there are plenty of bar chairs, and counter-height tables, as well as regular dining tables.

Outside the buffet and dining area, there are many other seating options throughout the lounge. While the lounge was busy, there was still plenty of seating open.

The lounge also offered some apron views. And sounds. While I wouldn’t be surprised if some guests were annoyed at the times when an MD-80 taxied past outside, I could not be more happy to hear the sound!

Finally, as the lounge attendant mentioned in the beginning, to the left of the entrance, there was a magazine rack. The choice seemed to be extremely limited though, with only a handful of magazines being offered. Also, in the back, next to some cubicles, there was the printer.

Food & Drinks Selection

For cold soft drinks, Delta is partnering with Coca-Cola, and as such, there was a soda machine featuring their products. On the hot drink side, their partner is Starbucks. There was also a cool-looking Vivreau water dispenser.

As for alcoholic drinks, the bar tenders at “THE BAR” (as Delta calls the bars in its lounges) are ready to serve a wide selection of both complimentary and “premium” beverages and cocktails at any time.

The meal selection was decent as well. There was a salad bar and some cookies and bread. There were also some hot options. During my visit, they included pumpkin coconut soup, vegetable pasta, and beef chili.

Overall Thoughts

The Delta Sky Club at Concourse B of Atlanta airport is, at the time of writing the newest lounge in the network. It is also the second largest after the one at New York JFK airport’s terminal 4. As such, the facilities are new and clean, and the design is modern.

Although the selection of food could be better, the pumpkin soup was excellent, and THE BAR added to the overall nice atmosphere in the lounge.
