Occasionally, it’s important to take a step back… to a time when life was simpler and one’s future as a tycoon was being cemented one overpriced 25-cent cup of lemonade at a time. Embrace the past at Lemonade. The modern twist on a nostalgic concept is part lemonade stand, part grade-school cafeteria. Guests will be enticed by what is under the glass – like a Grilled Cheese with Ham and Quince on Pumpernickel, Snap Pea and Edamame Salad or perhaps Miso Short Ribs and a Lemon Meringue Pie. Guests will also be able to quench their thirst with several varieties of the requisite house-made lemonade; favorites are Rosemary watermelon and Peach Ginger – these would have taken one’s childhood lemonade stand to the next level! Located in Terminal 5.

The Concert Bar allows travelers to experience the best of the local music scene while dining on culinary favorites, and through a partnership with Live Nation, travelers are entertained with the latest concert footage. Whatever the locale, Concert Bar will rock your world! Located in Terminal 5.
