The newly opened Qantas Lounge is a further addition to the complement of lounges within T3. There really is a plethora of lounges to choose from, and Qantas have set the bar very high.
Features of Qantas Lounge (LHR T3)
It features 2 floors – ground floor hosting the exceptional Gin bar, along with a la carte dining options and the 1st floor hosting the Champagne bar, individual seating areas, business facilities and shower amenities – this is a truly First Class Lounge experience.
Qantas serve a succinct a la carte breakfast menu, along with a continental buffet breakfast on both floors. The beverage selection is pretty extensive, offering the usual wines, beers and spirits, but also with a dedicated Gin bar on the ground floor, with a focus on Aussie gins.
Gin Bar in Qantas Lounge
I was served by a fantastic waiter (Nestor) who went out of his way to provide comprehensive details on the Gins available and their unique qualities. If you’re into Gin, you’re going to be in heaven. If you ain’t into Gin, you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. Who knew Green Ant Gin would be so good!?
Seating in Qantas Lounge
There is a vast amount of seating available on the 1st floor, which is dissected into really pleasant areas that are both private, as well as having an open feel.
To the right of the Champagne bar, you’ll find a nice view of the runway, which, being an AVGeek is always my go to place in a lounge to do a bit of plane spotting.
The vibe in the lounge was fantastic, staff highly personable, yet not intrusive, and the F&B offering was on point.
I can highly recommend the Qantas Lounge as your first choice if passing through T3 as it holds its own with the Cathay Lounge around the corner – I even think I preferred it to the flagship Sydney lounge.
