Local artists on display

Artwork is on full display throughout the space with more than 55 pieces of local commissioned art. Capital One wanted to give local artists an amazing platform to showcase their work: “We’ll have hundreds of 1,000s of passengers a year through here, all getting a chance to take in the art and really experience it,” the company said. Coming soon: museum-quality plaques to add to the experience.

Family friendly

Capital One talked to families about their needs.  One was a multifunctional area for families. “Separated family rooms are great for toys, but typically parents want to feel a little bit more immersed in the experience not so separated kind of the rest of the world,” Capital One said. “Our space is multifunctional so it lets parents hang out on their own and feel perfectly comfortable but provides a smaller space for kids.

Nap pods, shower suites, and more

Health and wellbeing for travelers is a top priority at the Capital One Lounge. Music plays throughout the space, but changes based on the room. The restrooms have word poetry and the cozy mother’s room has spa-relaxing music. The main areas have different beats playing to keep a good energetic vibe.
