The entrance to the SWISS Lounge at Chicago Airport is directly after security and the duty-free area.

How is the SWISS Lounge Chicago equipped?

Shortly behind the reception there is a small separate room on the right and a corridor with the buffet on the left. There is also a seating area at the back of the lounge. The last renovation was in 2011 and so the lounge finally adapts to the worldwide design concept of SWISS. I find the white sandstone and the brown leather armchairs very appropriate and classy at the same time.

Located at the rear of the lounge, the seating area consists of several brown leather armchairs. These are separated from each other by a side table with sockets and a lamp. There is also a long table with a few bar stools by the window. From here you also have a view of the apron and the gate. Overall, it can get a bit cramped when there is a large crowd, since the lounge is not very large. In addition, the free WiFi was unfortunately a bit slow and we often had to deal with disconnections.

What is there to eat and drink in the SWISS Lounge Chicago?

The buffet was clearly filled. A hot main course was offered with chicken teriyaki and fried rice. There was also a mixed salad with mozzarella balls and small brownie bites. The range of dishes is clearly expandable.

In contrast, there was a local Wheat Ale from the Goose Island Brewery on offer in addition to various spirits, wine and soft drinks. But it turned out that this was not my taste at all.

The range of dishes is clearly expandable. In contrast, I was pleased with the variety of drinks. I found it very nice that a local beer was also offered. The seating is comfortable and working is also possible thanks to the sockets and WiFi.
