If you're looking for a tranquil oasis at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), look no further than the United Airlines Polaris Lounge. This lounge offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the airport, with excellent service, a great selection of food and drinks, and comfortable seating.

A Tranquil Oasis in the Busiest of Airports

The United Polaris Lounge at LAX sets the standard for a business class lounge. Located in Terminal 7, the lounge is easily accessible for departing or connecting United Polaris business class customers, as well as departing long-haul Star Alliance business or first-class customers.

A Lounge That Never Gets Crowded

One of the standout features of this lounge is that it never seems to get crowded. With United's international schedule at LAX being rather light and the distance between Terminal 7 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) being far, you'll never struggle to find a seat here. Even during peak times, the lounge remains spacious and inviting.

Comfortable Seating and Ample Amenities

The seating in the lounge is comfortable and inviting, with oversized little suites that include a comfortable chair, worktable, lamp, and plenty of power ports. The layout, amenities, and service are consistent with other Polaris lounges in the network, making it a superior lounge to the Star Alliance First Class lounge in the TBIT.

Delicious Dining Options

The gastronomic delights at the United Polaris Lounge are not to be missed. The menu rotates seasonally, offering a wide assortment of soups, salads, breads, cheeses, meats, as well as seasonal hot and cold dishes. For breakfast, you can indulge in a Nutella-filled croissant, a "power green smoothie bowl" with granola, or chilaquiles. For lunch or dinner, try the avocado and burrata tower, butternut squash risotto, or the mouthwatering street taco trio.

Pampering Your Palate at the Bar

The true centerpiece of the lounge is the bar, which stretches around the heart of the lounge. It offers a wide selection of hand-crafted cocktails, beer, wine, spirits, and barista-made coffee. Special shoutout to Jaymond, one of the bartenders, who not only crafts amazing cocktails but also provides exceptional service.
