The temporary (“pop-up”) United Club at New-York/Newark airport Concourse C near gate C93 opened in September 2018 in an effort to relieve crowding at the United Club near gate C74.
The club will remain open until United completes the design and construction of a larger and permanent facility.
The pop-up club is situated in a partitioned-off space within the gate area. There is no bathroom, noise from the terminal bleeds in, and the design is monochrome and utilitarian to a fault. That said, the lounge delivers on all the essentials including ample daylight, comfortable seating with power points at every seat, work spaces, and a typically peaceful environment.
The food and drink selection is modest. Guests will find hummus, pretzels, cheddar cheese, carrots, ranch dip, infused water, soda, and espresso, as well as complimentary beer, wine, and sparkling wine.
For a more substantial selection, including salads, protein, and premium beverages and cocktails, head over to the United Club near gate C74, but be aware that it is chronically crowded.
You may have access to United Club as a premium customer of one of the following airlines, or as an elite member of their frequent flyer program. Check the Access rules tab for more details.
