Virgin Atlantic has officially opened its new airside Clubhouse at Pier A within New York JFK's Terminal 4, replacing its previous landside offering.
The 930sq meters facility features an “Understatedly Uptown, Unmistakably New York” theme, with “cascading, shimmering golden ceilings of lighting, and soft, decadent textures”, a cloud-shaped cocktail bar enclosed by a “curving ‘wall’ of stainless steel rods and walnut fins”, and a red ball sofa in the entertainment zone.
Guests can choose between informal dining anywhere in the lounge, or an a la carte brasserie area. Menus include pork sliders, caramelised apples, old school tin baked steak and Brooklyn Ale pie, with cocktails and microbrewery ales from the bar.
Other facilities include an internet bar, spa and hairdressing services by Bumble and Bumble, and “person sized round cavities” lined with wool allowing passengers to rest in the relaxation areas.
