Overall, the United Club is worth visiting if you're looking a place to unwind or get work done. There are plenty of nooks and quiet corners to relax.

The food isn't the highlight if you're looking for a meal. For more substantial food, visit the Star Alliance lounge if you're a Star Alliance Gold member.
