This is the end of an era. I was grief-stricken when I found out that Timberline Steaks & Grille would no longer be accepting Priority Pass. I’ve had trouble articulating a eulogy worthy of the gratitude and praise I wanted to express—until Boyz II Men came on in the grocery store.
It was a place that was almost always packed. It was loud. There was a hustle and bustle atmosphere. Not to mention, charismatic bartenders. It was an amazing place to meet fellow travelers before a flight. Not only that, Timberline was typically the best option.
The Denver United Clubs are lame. I love the Denver Delta SkyClub but I would liken the atmosphere to Sunday church. And if that’s what you’re looking for (i.e., hungover me), there’s nothing wrong with that. I just really, really, wish this one-of-a-kind lounge would stay.
Sing it, Boyz…
On Bended Knee
Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way they use to be?
Oh God give me a reason,
I’m down on bended knee.
Timberline Was the Only Airport Lounge Option in Denver for Most of Us
Denver has had four lounges that granted access with the right credit card: United Club, Delta SkyClub, American Airlines Admirals Club, and our fallen angel, Timberline. It was the first and only airport lounge in Denver accessible with Priority Pass.
The Timberline closure and departure from the Priority Pass network leaves Denver with few or non-accessible lounge options. Sigh.
