Priority Pass Keeps Getting Better At Portland Airport

Posted: August 7, 2017 at 1:45 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

Portland International Airport may just have become the best when it comes to the benefits you receive as a Priority Pass member. In June I wrote about how House Spirits Distillery at Portland Airport joined the Priority Pass network, which is apparently the only airport distillery tasting room in the world.

Priority Pass members receive 28USD per person off their final bill. So if you have a Priority Pass membership with guesting privileges, you can potentially take three friends and get $112 off your bill, for example.

Well, after having an awesome whiskey or spirit flight, or some cocktails, there’s now a restaurant you can go to for a meal that’s part of Priority Pass.

Capers Cafe Le Bar (in Concourse C) and Capers Market (in Concourse D), have just joined Priority Pass, and members receive 28USD per person off their final bill. Both are open daily from 4AM until 11:30PM. Both restaurants offer sit down dining as well as food to go. Breakfast items include omelets, burritos, french toast, oatmeal, etc., while breakfast and lunch items include salads, sandwiches, pizza, chili, etc.

The 28USD credit is per person, so if you have a Priority Pass card that offers guesting privileges, you can get that credit for each person. Do note that the terms say that the credit can’t be used towards tip.

The Capers offerings look surprisingly decent, including an all day dining menu and an extensive wine list.

Priority Pass now has four participating locations in Portland — the Alaska Lounge, the two Capers locations, and House Spirits Distillery. If you wanted to you could visit all four, though there’s no doubt diminishing incremental return with this stuff, so in reality I doubt all people will hit up all four. I guess I could see many people going to both the tasting room and then the restaurant, which seems like a great combo.

It’s so cool to see Priority Pass expand, and add new concepts.

Has anyone visited Capers at PDX, or plan to do so now that it’s part of Priority Pass?
