SFO’s New Alaska Lounge is a Destination Unto Itself!
Alaska Airlines recently unveiled its newest Alaska Lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
Located in Terminal 2, the lounge is over 9,000 square feet of dining, local art displays, and even a play area for kids. The former American Airlines Admirals Club was completely renovated ahead of its opening at the end of August 2021 and is open daily from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM local time.
The SFO version of the Alaska Lounge is the second-largest in the network and no detail was spared in this incredible destination lounge!
The Sourdough Cart
Guests at the SFO Alaska Lounge can sample this local staple that stretches all way back to the Gold Rush! Sourdough bread and other pastries from Acme Bread Co., Chez Panisse, and other area favorites are available at this vintage-style cart.
The Candy Bar
Jelly Belly jelly beans and sweet squares of Ghirardelli chocolate are stacked throughout this small corner of the lounge. You can even sample some custom-made cookies from the Fortune Cookie Factory in Oakland- a local favorite for over 60 years.
If you’re a craft beer fan, you can do much worse than Northern California breweries. Between Anchor Brewing, Lagunitas, Calicraft Brewing, and Sierra Nevada, you’re bound to find the perfect pint. If not, the Alaska Lounge has plenty of California wines and craft cocktails at the ready!
Amazing Local Art
In addition to art from San Francisco’s Minted, the lounge also showcases “Offshore” by American painter and printmaker Anne Neely, who is inspired by Alaska Airlines’ commitment to reducing its climate footprint.
