1. The Pearl Lounge (Departures)
The Pearl Lounge is located at Terminal 1, Airside, 1st floor, after Security Checks and Passport Control. This lounge opened in December 2017, and if you fly BA Club Europe, you will have access to this lounge. This is also a Priority Pass lounge, or if you don’t have a Priority Pass, you can pay to access this lounge.
The current price is from €30 EUR for an Adult, €15 EUR for a child, and access is free for an infant. This is quite a cheap price for lounge access and may well be worth it for a quiet space and complimentary alcoholic drinks and snacks.
The Pearl Lounge is actually really nice, with lots of fun seating pods with partitions around them that look a little like snail shells. The dining area feels very Moroccan, with Moroccan tiling on the floor and bright yellow seats. The whole lounge is immaculate, including the toilets.
The food on offer is rather limited but not bad for a non-BA lounge. There are three hot dishes, pastries, and snacks. There is barista coffee and tea, and there is free alcohol with red and white wine, a limited range of spirits.
