There are two Airspace Lounges in the United States. One in Cleveland and one in San Diego. There were two other Airspace Lounges in Baltimore and New York-JFK, but those were closed.
Airspace Lounges are different than other airport lounges. You can still enjoy free light snacks, tea, coffee, and soft drinks, but any alcohol or other food must be purchased.
Each guest gets a food and beverage credit ($7 in Cleveland and $10 in San Diego) to cover some of the cost.
The food in the lounge costs about $6-10, beer is $8-9, and wine is $7-15, so your food and beverage credit will get you about one item. Hot food items are either microwaved or heated up in a toaster, so I typically either stick to an alcoholic drink or a cheese or a charcuterie board.
I prefer Escape Lounges over Airspace Lounges, which you can both access with the American Express Platinum card. Escape Lounges offer unlimited complimentary food and alcoholic drinks, and the quality of the food is much better than Airspace Lounges.
Airspace Lounge Access
You can access the Airspace Lounges for free with the American Express Platinum card, with two free guests or your immediate family members. All guests also get the food and beverage credit.
If you don’t have the Platinum card, it costs $20 for entry in Cleveland and $35 in San Diego.

There is a shower in the lounge. It is pretty small, but I enjoyed it. It is a nice amenity for a small lounge. Just ask one of the employees to put your name on the list for the shower and they will give you a little amenity kit and a towel.
