The United Polaris Lounge finally opened its doors on Monday, June 4th for travelers with Polaris International Business and First Class tickets booked on any United or Star Alliance flight. You cannot gain access to this club with your frequent flier status, credit card perks or day passes. This is strictly for international travel in business or first class.
I was so excited to finally get to go into this club and it was well worth the wait. The lounge is located at EWR in Terminal C, following the security screen between C102 and C120. At the entrance of the lounge, there is a vibrant light fixture which is meant to look like the constellation of the 12 zodiac signs.
The lounge area is more than 27,000 square feet with 15 different types of seats and a capacity to hold up to 455 passengers. The seats are equipped with power outlets, USB ports, and 4 private phone rooms for meeting and calls. The lounge also has 10 private daybeds with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding, shower suites with rainfall showers. and SoHo House and Co Cowshed products. It even has a personal valet services which will steam your suits!
My favorite part of the lounge was by far the private dining room. There you can order from the a la carte dining menu that features items such as Moroccan-spiced braised lamb, polenta fries, strawberry mint acai bowl, and a Polaris Burger. The all day menu has light bites, entrees, small plates and desserts. They also have jars filled with wasabi peas, jelly beans, M&Ms, and Skittles. I loved just sitting in the lounge feeling like I was at a nice restaurant. In addition to the private dining area, the lounge offers an extensive bistro-like buffet. From a bagel bar, to sandwich and wraps, to chicken parmesan, you would be quite satisfied with the food selection.
Another great feature of the lounge was it’s extensive cocktail menu with signature drinks. One of their signature drinks is the United Polaris Star, which is a house made anise-infused vodka. Another signature drink is Fernet About IT, a version of the Cuba Libre containing Italian Libation. I ordered champagne, about which I was surprised because many lounges only serve prosecco!
After visiting a multitude of lounges at airports worldwide, this lounge is most definitely amazing and well worth the stop if you are flying International Business or First Class. The airline has two more Polaris lounges expected to open in the immediate future: Houston’s George Bush International airport (which is expected to open by the end of the month) and LAX (which is expected to open by year end). Washington Dulles is planned to open sometime in 2019. So much to be excited about!
