The Art & Lounge, at Newark Liberty International Airport is located in Terminal B, landside between pier B2 & B3, meaning regardless of what Terminal you’re departing from you’re able to stop by before clearing security. It’s clear that while its a contract lounge both La Compagnie and El Al are it’s two main airline partners. Hours of operation are Sunday through Friday 9am-10:30pm, and Saturdays 1:30pm-11:30pm.
Additionally, it’s a Priority Pass lounge, meaning cardholders of the The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN receive complimentary access, which is how I was able to use this lounge on my recent flight from Newark.

Additionally, there was a full open bar, with several bartenders, but due to it being extremely crowded, I wasn’t able to get any pictures of it.
As this is the contract lounge El Al uses at Newark, all the food options are broken down into either Kosher or non-Kosher, which isn’t something I’ve seen before in other contract lounge.
How To Get Access:
You can gain access to Priority Pass Select, which will get you lounge access here for free by being a cardholder of The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN
If you have some extra time before your next flight from Newark, consider stopping by the Art & Lounge, which offers a full open bar and some snacks.
