‘Centurion New York’ Will Open in Midtown Manhattan this March
Centurion New York, an exclusive luxury space is opening up in March. Unlike airport lounges, this will be a more “Centurion” experience designed for Amex Centurion cardmembers. But it looks like Amex Platinum cardholders will also be able to visit.
Platinum Concierge has informed some members that two of the nine dining spaces in here will be accessible to Platinum cardholders, when booked through Concierge (since reservations are booked through the Centurion portal). Reservations open on February 9, 2023.
Located on the 55th floor of One Vandebilt in Midtown Manhattan, the space will feature casual fine dining experiences curated by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud. There’s also a chic bar serving signature cocktails and a salon where Centurion members can relax and unwind. Members will also enjoy other perks such as access to private rooms, programming and events.
One Vanderbilt is a 93-story supertall skyscraper at the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue. This is where the SUMMIT One Vanderbilt observation deck is located (floors 91-93), offering sweeping views of the city.

I reached out to American Express to inquire about Centurion New York, but they told me they have “no information to share as of yet”.
