Just another reason to love Alaska Airlines! On our way home from NYFW, Ruthie, Mae and I had the chance to check out Alaska’s newest lounge at JFK Airport. Not going to lie, I had never been to a lounge at an airport until this experience. With how much I travel, it was time to make a new tradition! I was so excited to check out the Alaska Lounge, especially since it is was a few months old, and because we had been on the go nonstop during our fashion week adventures and this was going to be a nice break. The lounge is ultra modern with a touch of home. Luxurious without trying too hard. My kind of place!
The Alaska Lounge offers a complimentary food and salad bar which includes, salads and soups (breakfast in the morning). If you are looking for something a little heartier, they have a food menu with delicious fare. I had the kimchi chicken bowl and it was delicious!
If you need to get some work done, there are multiple seating options for the road warrior. I had the most fun working in one of the “pods” as I like to call them. The seats are like a cocoon that are perfect for busting out the laptop or taking a quick call.
My other favorite feature? The bar area! Whenever CJ and I decide to put some roots somewhere, I want the tile backsplash in my house! By being a guest at the Alaska Lounge, you are able to enjoy a wide selection of microbrews, wines and cocktails from the swanky bar inside the lounge, all complimentary. Seriously, it doesn’t get better than that, and I had a rosé, or two. 🙂

Here are some pictures of the Alaska Lounge! I’m sorry if they induce FOMO.
Where to find the Alaska Lounge
The Alaska Lounge is located on the mezzanine level of Terminal 7 at JFK. If you’re flying first class, you automatically receive complimentary admission, but you have the option to purchase a day pass and experience all of the amenities! Not flying through JFK? No problem. There are Alaska Lounges in Anchorage, LA, Portland, and Seattle (Alaska’s hub). I would totally recommend it to get some work done, enjoy a bite, rest and restore, and maybe make a new friend! Can’t wait to return for some pre-flight R&R! 🙂
