The sprawling, elegant lounge is the first one to open in the US, almost two years after the new lounges were announced in June 2021. The inaugural Chase Sapphire Lounge opened at Hong Kong International Airport in October 2022.

The lounge will be open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and feature amenities such as a taproom, cocktail bar, complimentary food, a wellness center, and a nursery room.

Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders get unlimited free access for themselves and up to two guests if they're registered in the free Priority Pass membership that comes with the card. Priority Pass members with cards other than the Sapphire Reserve have one free entry to any Chase Sapphire Lounge per year.
