Ahlan Lounge at B at Dubai International Airport, Terminal 3, Concourse B, is one of the few independent lounges operated for passengers who aren’t flying on Emirates or do not have access to the Emirates Lounges. In addition to pay-in customers, the facility welcomes members of popular lounge access programs such as Priority Pass.
Ahlan Lounge at B hides in plain sight on the mezzanine by gate B26. It’s a small wonder that there’s not a single sign, though if you see signs to “The Hub” and “Cádiz Tapas bar”, you are in the right place — the lounge is part of the same complex, which doubles as a bar and at as a restaurant. The entrance is located on the left side as you go up the escalator.
Ahlan Lounge at B (The Hub) DXB design
Ahlan Lounge at B features a unique design, which makes it immediately stand apart from most lounges worldwide. It’s all about wine: wine walls, stacks of barrels, and barrel shaped tables under the airport’s soaring roof which lets plenty of natural light in and features terrific tarmac views. It’s an original, warm and classy design, an eclectic mix of modern and traditional; grandiose and fake in a typical Dubai fashion, but appealing and fun.
With partitions that carve out multiple small areas, Lounge at B offers a pleasant amount of privacy. The seating areas are equipped with comfortable furniture including recliners and couches, making the 24 hour lounge a popular place to sleep at nights. However, power outlets are sorely missing overall.
Ahlan Lounge at B (The Hub) DXB amenities
The elaborate buffet is a highlight and a major draw. An open kitchen prepares a variety of appetizers, hold and cold entrees, small bites, and desserts. Alcoholic drinks are also available, although most come at an extra cost; a variety of price packages are available.
Two massage chairs are available at the far end of the lounge.
Ahlan Lounge at B (The Hub) DXB bottom line
Overall, Ahlan Lounge at B is in our opinion the best independent lounge at Dubai airport. The location by gate B26 isn’t especially central, so realistically, it will only be of use to a fraction of the sprawling airport’s passengers, but if you do have time, it is worth the hike (allow 10 minutes to/from Concourses A and C.) We only regret the lack of showers.
