CLEVELAND – Travelers at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport can step into a relaxed private club setting to get work done, enjoy complimentary food and drink or unwind before takeoff with the arrival of The Club CLE. The premium lounge, located at the entrance of Concourse B, offers an inviting ambiance with natural lighting, views of the airfield and amenities that enhance the airport experience. CLE joins a rapidly growing network of the U.S. market-leading lounge brand, The Club.
The Club CLE was launched by Airport Dimensions, the global leader in airport lounges and travel experiences, in partnership with Cleveland-based FLŌH vodka, an Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE). FLŌH is the brainchild of local entrepreneur Jacques Evans, its CEO. The collaboration brings a stylish FLŌH-branded bar as a focal point and a drinks menu featuring hand-crafted, small-batch, allergen-free, and Kosher Seal certified vodka.
Airport officials and guests gathered at an open house ceremony, tasting, and tour to mark the much-anticipated opening of The Club CLE. "We are delighted to welcome The Club CLE to the airport officially," said Tina LaForte, vice president of Fraport Cleveland, developer and manager of the airport's retail concessions program. "The early response by our guests has exceeded our expectations. Clevelanders are welcoming this new amenity and seek out The Club during their visit at the airport," she added. "It offers the ultimate in comfort and convenience."
Guests have access to The Club's signature designated zones to "Rest, Relax, and Replenish." The premium lounge spans 2,000 square feet of space and provides flexible seating and workspaces with complimentary high-speed wi-fi, all-day food and drink offerings, and hospitality services. Menu items range from breakfast to all-day specialties like tomato basil soup, ginger chicken and jasmine rice bowl, and blueberry cobbler. Specialty cocktails include the Flohberry Rosemary Mule and Harvest Whisky Crush. Hours are 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Passes can be purchased online or upon arrival.
