Select American Express cardholders now have two exclusive lounges to spend time in at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The credit card company opened the Centurion Lounge and Escape Lounge on Monday in Terminal 4, according to a press release.

The lounges, which are side-by-side and total 9,500 square feet, are open to American Express Platinum Card and Centurion members.

They offer visitors reception areas, specialty cocktails and Mexican cuisine, including dishes such as tortilla soup, pollo asado and eggs & chorizo.

The menus were created by Doug Robson, who is the executive chef at Gallo Blanco and Otro Cafe in Phoenix.

“I’m honored to bring my dishes to The Centurion Lounge and Escape Lounge in the Phoenix Airport for travelers and locals alike,” said Chef Robson. “These menus are inspired by my upbringing in Mexico City and the multicultural flavors and energy of the cuisine.”

The Centurion Lounge also offers workspaces, power outlets, private phone areas and Wi-Fi access.

The Escape Lounge offers children’s activity packs as well as a “silent digital library,” which includes noise-canceling headphones and access to more than 7,000 publications.

Non-cardholders can purchase a day pass for the Escape Lounge for $45.

“Our premium card members tell us that lounge access is the No. 1 travel benefit they’re looking for, so we’re excited to bring two world-class lounge experiences to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport,” Alexander Lee, American Express Vice President of Loyalty and Benefits, said in the press release.

The company has more than 1,200 lounges around the world in over 500 cities.
