The new Club MSY, a premium lounge, opened at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
At the center is a saxophone-shaped bar, along with other premium elements, like a handblown crystal chandelier, photography by David Spielman and artwork by Ayo Scott — both local artists. The 4,700-square-foot lounge sits on the third level of the airport’s Concourse A.
Visitors can enjoy New Orleans-inspired cuisine created by Chef John Folse, and cocktails and spirits curated by mixologist Kathy Casey. The lounge, from Airport Dimensions, includes various “zones” for productivity, relaxation, rest, replenishment (dining), refreshing (restrooms and showers) and a bar.
The new lounge is the 24th airport lounge by Airport Dimensions (part of the Collinson group), and follows the recent opening of Club SJC at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International. It’s open to members of Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club. Day passes are $40, discounts are extended to AAA members. Hours are 4:30 a.m.–9:30 p.m., daily.
This is the third lounge inside Louis Armstrong International Airport’s new terminal, which opened November 2019. The airport also has a Delta Sky Club on the third floor of Concourse C and a United Club on the first level of Concourse C.

The all-glass, chic and incredibly grand entrance was so well-secluded, it somehow snuck up on me.
