IAH Has Best Airport Lounge in North America, Conveniently Located in the Same Terminal as the Best Hookup Spot
The United Club at IAH is the creme de la creme of airport layover bars.

A few weeks ago, we noted that the Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen in Terminal E of George Bush Intercontinental Airport had been ranked as the best spot for an airport hookup in America by MeetAtTheAirport.com. Turns out good old Terminal E has more than just a casual spot for meeting Prince Charming, it also has the best airport lounge in North America.
This according to the Priority Pass Lounge of the Year awards, which surveys almost 60,000 Priority Pass members. The United Club lounge took top honors this year in North America. This is the third regional award win for the lounge, which services 2,000 visitors each day. It has won the global version of the award three times as well. That must be one hell of a lounge.
Members gave the United lounge high marks for business services in particular.
Obviously, this is a lounge specifically for Priority Pass members and the rest of the riffraff can suck it in the holding pen with the rest of the losers, but if you are among the hoity-toity, this is lounge life at its upper-crusty best.
And given that it is in the same terminal as the best airport hookup spot in America, we're guessing there are plenty of fine people to meet while you wait on your plane and drink until you can't see straight.
