Airspace Lounge

I had my first experience with Airspace lounge at Baltimore Washington airport this afternoon. I am a United Club member however United does not have a lounge at BWI. I wanted to try this out and see what it's like.  The club at BWI is fairly small, about 20 tables or couch areas. I had to wait about 10 minutes before I could enter as the person watching the front desk is also the bartender. The cost is $20 ($22 with MD tax) and you get a card that's loaded with $7 towards a drink. The soft drinks are complementary. The bar is fully stocked with decent domestic beers and some local's along with normal spirits. Their website promotes complimentary food in the club. The only complimentary food I was able to find was a dispenser of bar nuts and Chex. Each table had a menu which listed drinks as well as made-to-order food priced between $6 and $21 dollars. I'm not sure how one would order this as there are no "servers" attending to the tables. There was ample space to plug in, just about every table had a power port. Wifi was pretty dismal with speeds at around .14 mbps (via The ambiance was the same as a typical airline club however did not have a TV, quiet or kids room. The bathrooms were very clean. 

Overall I was a little underwhelmed. I guess I'm spoiled by being a member of a mainline airline club. If your like me this club might seem like a downgrade or not worth the $22 dollars for the day pass. If your not this will be a nice upgrade to sitting in the concourse or a restaurant, especially if your trying to conduct business at the airport.
