LHR: London Heathrow British Airways Terminal 5 Galleries Club Lounge North
► Airline Lounges › Europe › United Kingdon › London Heathrow T5 › British Airways Galleries Club North
Appropriately, this lounge is designed for passengers flying North on the few remaining BA domestic services to Scotland, plus for Club Europe travelling on the shorthaul network, and the domestic flights. As a result this lounge has many more Scottish and European newspapers than it's southern cousin, and the wine and food selection can be marginally better. The major perk of this lounge is the Club Terrace overlooking the terminal below.
The British Airways Galleries Club North lounge is vaguely T shaped, with a long thin top of the T, that has a great view overlooking the Northern runway.
As you enter, there are the newspaper and magazine racks, and then you walk past the coffee House, and the wine gallery, with the Club Kitchen on your right. If you turn right you'd go through the double doors to the Terrace. If you go left, there is the silver bar, another magaine rack (often fuller than the ones by the door) and the business centre at the end.
FoodFood is in the Club Kitchen. The menu is painted on the wall, with Breakfast from 0530 to 1200. It's quite good with bacon rolls and crossants, yoghurt, and fruit salad. At 1200-1400 and 1700-1900 there are hot dishes, in the trays under the hot lamps. These can be quite good, with generally a chicken curry or some meaty pasta. From 1400-2200 there is soup, salad, cold meats and cheese.
BarYou should know the deal with the British Airways bar by now: itís is free pour and free flowing in the British Airways Galleries Club North lounge.
The one main Silver bar is in the middle of the lounge, overlooking the Northern Runway. It has BA's new signature of a long thin bar with curved round ends - the wine is in the central trough, and the selection often has wines that are now in the Southern cousin.
Against the far wall are six fridges, containing Carlsberg, Heiniken, London Pride and Newcastle Brown, and 17 types of sprits are on the wall.
There is Gordon's Gin, Smirnoff vodka, Bacardi, Jack Daniels, VSOP, Johnnie Walker (Red), Jamesons, Southern comfort, Grouse, Glenlivett, Campari, Martini (2 types), Tia Maria, Drambuie, and Contreau. Port & Baileys is in the trough on the worktop, along with 5 types of juice and packets of nuts.
There are good showers, but if you want a better experience head to the Spa in the south complex.
Business FacilitiesThe Work and Entertainment Zone (called W+EZ) in the British Airways Galleries Club North lounge has 12 brand new Internet computers, with headphones, all connected to one central printer, plus a photocopier and fax.
There are sockets for European and US plugs, and a TV on the wall (normally on Bloomburg). Past this are the showers.
There is free wifi in the lounge.
