New Opening at Harvey Milk Terminal 1

Situated in the newly opened Harvey Milk Terminal 1 at San Francisco International Airport, The Club SFO will welcome guests starting June 26, 2024. Spanning over 12,000 square feet and featuring 249 seats, this lounge sets a new standard in airport luxury and sustainability. As the largest lounge in The Club’s portfolio, it promises an exceptional experience with a strong emphasis on Northern Californian culture and eco-friendly practices.

Embracing Local Culture and Natural Beauty

The Club SFO embodies Airport Dimensions’ commitment to creating spaces that reflect their surroundings. The lounge’s “Northern California Natural” theme is evident in every detail, from the double-height lobby reminiscent of redwood trees to the nature-inspired wall coverings. Guests can enjoy the unique ambiance created by dappled lighting that mimics sunlight filtering through a canopy, blending local natural beauty with modern comfort.

Innovative Design Collaboration

Collaborating with the esteemed architecture and design firm Corgan, The Club SFO draws inspiration from the grandeur of the Redwood Forest. The lounge features a captivating tree canopy ceiling, a cabin-inspired bar, and an open dining area. The design seamlessly merges the outdoors with indoor comforts, offering both private and social seating arrangements. A glazed concourse viewing area further connects guests to the iconic San Francisco fog, enhancing the local experience.

Showcasing Local Art

The Club SFO continues its tradition of highlighting local talent with works by award-winning Californian artists Cathy Lu and Denise Laws. Denise Laws’ installation, crafted from reclaimed foil-lined packaging, and a panoramic wall mural of the Redwood Forest in the dining area exemplify the lounge’s blend of nature and art. Upcoming additions include Cathy Lu’s ceramic sculptures, which deconstruct traditional Chinese imagery, adding cultural depth to the space.

Culinary Excellence

Committed to local flavors, The Club SFO features a 100% Northern California wine list and partners with homegrown suppliers. A peak-hours action station by Foley Family Wines offers delectable meals and wines from renowned vineyards, creating a dynamic dining experience. Seasonal ingredients ensure that every culinary journey is personalized and delicious.

Focus on Wellness

The Club SFO prioritizes guest well-being with innovative wellness and fitness features. Bespoke fitness mirrors and equipment provide easy access to workouts, while the unique Luminescence rooms offer adjustable lighting to suit guests’ needs. The Relaxation Room, with its comfortable seating and calming light wall, provides a tranquil escape from the busy airport environment.

Comprehensive Amenities

Catering to diverse traveler needs, The Club SFO offers world-class amenities, from relaxation areas to productivity zones. Guests can enjoy meals in the spacious dining area or freshen up in spa-like shower facilities. The micro-climate Fireplace, designed to mimic a campfire with water vapor and lighting, adds a touch of warmth and local charm. Exceptional hospitality ensures that every guest feels valued and cared for throughout their visit.

Commitment to Sustainability

The Club SFO is proud to achieve LEED Gold certification, reflecting Airport Dimensions’ dedication to sustainability. This milestone, in collaboration with SFO’s Harvey Milk Terminal, was achieved through energy-efficient systems, comprehensive recycling, use of biophilia, and water-efficient technologies. The lounge’s construction incorporates low-carbon footprint materials, PVC-free fabrics, and reclaimed native Redwood, underscoring its commitment to environmental responsibility.
