Making my second lounge strop in Warsaw Chopin Airport before my LOT Polish flight to Chicago, I hopped over to the Bolero Lounge on the lower level of Terminal A. The Bolero Lounge is located on the non-Schengen side of Terminal A at Warsaw Chopin Airport. I’d already spent some time in the LOT Polish Polonez Lounge on the Schengen but wanted some lounge time after passport control.
Part of the Priority Pass network, I gained access to the Bolero Lounge through my Business Class ticket although I do also hold a Priority Pass membership that would gain me access. A day pass can also be purchased for PLN 130 at the front desk.
I checked-in with the front desk and took a seat in the rear of the lounge along the windows. The lounge was quite empty on a Saturday afternoon with lots of seating options. The windows run the full length of the lounge offering lots of natural light and some great tarmac views. An Emirates 777 parked right behind my seat offered a great view for plane geeks.
There are plenty of seating options including sofas, leather armchairs, and cafes tables. The WiFI speed was good but the lounge could use more power outlet as I couldn’t find many throughout the lounge, There are men and women’s restrooms in the rear of the lounge and a small shower suite in each restroom.
In the cafe area of the lounge, there is a selection of beverages and snacks. The alcoholic and non-alochohilc beverages are self-serve. There’s also an espresso machine for self-service lattes and cappuccinos. For food, there was a limited variety of cold cuts, cheese, potatoes, and lentils. I’d been eating all day so I didn’t eat much in the lounge. Plus, the food selection was a bit boring.
The lounge stayed fairly empty throughout my hour long stay before heading off to my boarding gate. Overall, the Bolero Lounge is your average contract lounge with a quiet place to relax pre-flight. The food selection wasn’t impressive but I did love the tarmac views and the comfy seating.
