At 4,650 square feet, the new club brings another 87 seats. Located steps away from the Concourse C shuttle train stop, it is equally convenient to passengers departing from the North Satellite and Concourse C.
Alaska Lounge SEA design
The new Alaska Lounge in Concourse C boasts a fresh new design which pays homage to the airline’s roots and the Pacific Northwest, while taking a stark departure from the legacy décor on display at the Concourse D club.
Adjacent to gate C16-C, the entrance sets the tone with a successful but unlikely alliance between hardwoods, color LED accent lighting, and dark metal. A grand staircase and an elevator lead guests to an upper-floor space, which once belonged to American Airlines’ Admirals Club.
Dominated by an original painting from renowned artist Dale Chihuly—a Seattle favorite—the reception area features two customer service desks. Opposite is a living wall made of moss flanked by an inviting etched welcome sign.
Just underneath on a ledge are two fingerprint readers, a convenient innovation by Alaska which lets lounge members check-in in an instant. (Alaska Lounge members can register for fingerprint access at any Alaska Lounge.)
The lobby opens onto a convivial and luminous seating area, with a calming water feature as the backdrop. The design effortlessly bridges the gap between tradition and modernity with natural materials, soft yet joyful colors, LED chandeliers, and the conveniences of a modern airport lounge such as USB ports and power outlets at every seat.
The windows tint automatically: as on a Boeing 787 aircraft, the glass panels darken as the weather and sunlight shift, eliminating the need for blinds or shades.
Despite its modest dimensions, the new Alaska Lounge feels spacious and inviting, thanks to high ceilings and a long window wall which lets ample natural light in and reveals stunning views of the adjacent runway, and the Olympic mountains in the distance. A haven for airplane lovers, the club is bound to become the airport’s most coveted spot for a front-row view on the action.
The smart layout aims at combining density with guest privacy. While the lounge packs close to 90 seats in a relatively compact space, the play of angles, high-backed chairs, the large walkway, floor lamps, and convivial coffee tables break out the space and foster a feeling of serenity and privacy.
The décor is dotted with design touches reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest. Hardwoods and blue accent lighting run along the ceiling, while two flat panels display video of tranquil scenery.
The water feature is the gateway to a large bar area, which is outfitted with dining tables as well as six exquisitely private cube chairs, which are bound to be popular.A bright space with two window walls, the vibrant bar area features an eclectic mix of furniture and materials. Guests will find a variety of seating options including dining tables, cocktail tables, and booth seating with partitions for a greater sense of privacy, complete with colorful pillows.
Power and USB outlets are built into every dining table, and also conveniently located under the bar.
A vintage monochrome picture of Alaska’s Starliner gives a nod to the airline’s origins in Alaska, while cardboard lamps hang graciously and seemingly randomly from the ceiling.
The large bar is surprisingly bare in comparison, though the vibrant views in the backdrop make for an ever-changing canvas. In response to passenger feedback, and to preserve the tranquility of the lounge, the only TVs are located behind the bar.
