New (old) United Club at San Francisco

United opened a new club in an old location earlier in the month. I was able to visit a few days after it opened.

The location is on the way to the 60 gates that United has opened recently and serves the gates around the main security entrances. The location is actually a reprise of where the second Red Carpet Club used to be many years ago. Outside security the original club closed in the wake of 9/11.

Designed to the new United Club standards it is bright an airy although there is no natural light.

You enter the lounge up in a lift, along a corridor lined with historic pics of United planes, and are welcomed at the Reception desk.

The room is broken in to many different areas and there is a full bar.

Unfortunately, it has the same snacks as every other United Club in the USA.

Overall it is a good addition, close to the 60 gates and there is plenty of seating. It seemed a lot quieter than the other club in the domestic terminal and the staff were super friendly. Worth a visit next time you are at SFO.


  1. Too bad it doesn’t have any views of the ramp.

    I used the old Red Carpet club on the mezzanine there many times. It was quite small compared to the three clubs they have now.

    I wish they would offer a better complimentary beer on draft.
