Over the past year, we have seen a number of domestic & international airport restaurants join the Priority Pass lounge network. This is an exciting trend if you are a Priority Pass member, as these restaurants offer substantial credits that allow you to dine for free during your travels.

Most recently, Priority Pass added a new restaurant to Los Angels International Airport (LAX), Rock & Brews. The restaurant is the first Priority Pass option in Terminal 1 of LAX which is operated exclusively by Southwest Airlines. Note that there is a Rock and Brews in LAX’s Terminal 5, which is not currently a part of Priority Pass.

Priority Pass restaurants have been an interesting story at LAX. There were three priority pass restaurants up until recently. Campanile’s in Terminal 4 already left the Priority Pass program and Barney’s Beanery in Terminal 2 is leaving effective November 30th. This leaves the newly added Rock & Brews and P.F. Chang’s which is in the Tom Bradley International Terminal.


Rock & Brews Information

  • The restaurant is open from 4:00 AM until 10:00 PM. There are no restrictions on Priority Pass members.
  • Located in Terminal 1 after security directly opposite Gate 11B.
  • Terminal 1 is not connected airside to any other terminals. This means dining will only make sense for passengers departing from Terminal 1 which is operated exclusively by Southwest Airlines.
  • Priority Pass members will receive $28 toward the purchase of any meal and/or drinks.
  • You can register one guest and will receive $56 total credit towards the purchase of a meal and/or drinks with a guest.
  • Any remaining balance can not be used towards gratuity.
  • You will need a Boarding Pass with confirmed same-day travel to take advantage of the credits.
