Inside the American Express Lounge Melbourne

Situated in the heart of Melbourne, Tullamarine International Airport Terminal 2, you will find yourself sliding down the elevator opposite Gate 7 to the grand entrance of the official American Express Lounge on the lower level. It’s hard to miss the bold ‘AMERICAN EXPRESS’ lettering over the marble tiles that signify the entrance to your relaxing oasis for the next few hours.

Open from 6 am until 11 pm seven days a week, you will be greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk before entering into the sleek design on this 2018 built business lounge. Accommodating up to 65 guests, space offers two areas for its patrons to relax in whilst in transit. The main dining area is designed around the inviting communal table, the perfect place for a few drinks with colleagues before your next flight. Fanning out from the central communal table is a variety of seating options including bar seating, private booths and a host of smaller dining tables suitable for an intermit party of four.

As with any lounge experience, the food and drink selection is a key point of interest to any long-haul traveller and this one does not disappoint. With a full bar and lengthy buffet, offering a complimentary selection of fine hot and chilled meals and snacks. Think fresh and fruity ‘build your own’ granola bowls, crusty ‘slider’ burgers, and homely cooked roast dinners.

Every guest is welcome to the limitless self-serve non-acholic range of fresh juices, soft drinks and bottled water. But the bar is the noteworthy feature with a very well-equipped menu, complete with a premium wine list and top-shelf spirits such as Four Pillars Gin, 12-Year old Canadian Club and Naked Grouse Scotch. And no matter what time of day you arrive you will also be welcomed by American Express Lounge’s very own barista brewing up a superb hot cup of jo to boost your energy levels and those happy coffee inducing endorphins, setting you in good stead for your onward journey.

The lounge area opposite the dining space again follows a similarly sleek design with a variety of seating options. The centrepiece is the long sweeping modular lounge suite running the length of the space. With groups of smaller lounge suits and coffee tables on either side, making it the perfect spot for a coffee and a quick flick of the plethora of daily newspapers and latest magazines on offer within the lounge.
