With sleek, mod decor highlighted by pictures of local celebs and handsome dogs, this is the first Centurion Lounge on the West Coast; there're three other locations in New York’s LaGuardia Airport, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and a fifth set to open in Miami in 2015.
How do you get in, you ask? Here's the deal: Centurion and Platinum cardholders have the luxury of free entry (you know, because they're throwing down annual fees in the $450 to $2,500 range), while other AmEx customers will have to fork out $50 for a one-day pass.
And if you don't have an American Express card? Well, you'll just have to settle for a beer at one of the country's best airport bars instead.
