Iberia VIP Velazquez Lounge Madrid: Better Hungover Or Hungry?

Iberia Lounge Review Madrid is part of the Round The Atlantic Trip Report.

Is it better to arrive to an airport hungover and take solace knowing you can re-hydrate in a premium lounge? Or is it better to arrive rested knowing that the fun of the lounge and flight made staying in the night before worthwhile (see Flying Business or First? Don’t Rage the Night Before). The answer is somewhere in the middle. Finding that balance is easier said than done. I can say that saving myself for breakfast regardless of the lounge is something is not a top priority (see Skipping Airport Lounges with No Regrets). Eggs are eggs no matter where they are made. And premium free drinks aren’t always desirable so early in the morning. Having said that, I do have a responsibility as a blogger to take photos of croissants and water bottles (see Hangover = Blogger Malpractice?) in case some readers aren’t as loose with Goose as I am. Or, for those who are, what options are available to ease you into the day. With that, I present to you photos of breakfast at the Iberia Lounge in Madrid.

If you’re hungry and are looking for good breakfast option, Iberia has you covered. If you’re hungover and need to go through the usual progressions of a nap will make me feel better, coffee will make me feel better, food will make me feel better, alcohol will make me feel better, or eating again will make me feel better, Iberia also has you covered.
