Capital One Lounge Opens At DCA

Capital One has opened a new lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to provide travelers with a place to relax and recharge, as well as enjoy coffee, a full bar and food options.

The new 8,500 square-foot Capital One Lounge, located just beyond the airport’s TSA PreCheck, between the East and West security checkpoints, also offers ample workspaces and a full-service food and beverage experience featuring curated craft and health-conscious menu options served as small plates to ensure travelers can refuel before their flights.

The new lounge features a local food and beverage program, that delivers a premium food and beverage experience, where travelers can sit down and enjoy a restaurant-quality meal or easily grab food and beverages on the way to their gate. The in-lounge offerings provide travelers with delicious, health-conscious menu options that are locally sourced and served plated as small bites, allowing travelers to customize their selections.

For travelers stopping by for a quick visit, the lounge’s thoughtfully-designed grab-and-go food section features healthy selections like jarred salads, granola bowls, and fresh juices – all packaged sustainably. Visitors enjoying the Lounge for a longer stay can enjoy a custom brew from Lost Rhino Brewing Co., an Ashburn-based company; local favorite Bresca’s fan-favorite Bee’s Knees cocktail via partnership with Will Patton, beverage director at Jont and Bresca; and craft chocolate from River-Sea Chocolates, a Chantilly-based chocolatier.

A full-service coffee bar, unique to the Capital One Lounge at IAD, serves La Colombe cold brew on tap and drip coffee from Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Company, a Virginia-based coffee roaster with a commitment to sustainability.

The Capital One Lounge also features historic architectural images of the airport’s original control tower and terminal, as well as beautiful teak wood architectural elements. Additional amenities include a parent’s room featuring comfortable seating for caregivers who are feeding or nursing their children, a filtered water system so travelers can refill their reusable water bottles, secure lockers with plenty of room for carry-on luggage and personal items, a flight status display to keep travelers on schedule and two semi-private, open-air rooms featuring ample quiet working space.

Venture X, Venture X Business, Venture, and Spark Miles customers enjoy special access to Capital One Lounges. Others can enter the lounge for $65 per visit.

Capital One opened its first lounge in fall 2021 at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and will soon expand to Denver International Airport (DEN) and Harry Reid International Airport (LAS). Capital One is also developing Capital One Landings, which focus on customers traveling through metropolitan airports where shorter stays are the norm, in LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).
