Bradley International Airport opens new sit-down restaurant, making upgrades to additional concessions to enhance travel experience

The Connecticut Airport Authority, along with its business partner and award-winning concessionaire Paradies Lagardère, is pleased to announce the opening of a brand-new dining location at Bradley International Airport (BDL).
Beercode Kitchen & Bar is now open in the Gates 21-30 concourse. This unique, gastropub-style concept is the first sit-down restaurant in this specific concourse, which will open daily at 4am with breakfast and then serve lunch and dinner for travelers throughout the day. Beercode will also showcase a lineup of local craft beer and other beverages.
“We are  thrilled  that Paradies Lagardère has brought its newest Beercode location to Bradley International Airport,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “The opening of Beercode is one of several steps we have taken to bring new dining and shopping concepts into the terminal over the last several years. We thank Paradies Lagardère for their continued investment at Bradley International Airport and for making these upgrades possible.”
In addition to its new location at BDL, Paradies Lagardère also has Beercode restaurants in Atlanta, GA and San Antonio, TX.
“We appreciate our great partnership with the Connecticut Airport Authority and are excited to showcase our impressive Beercode concept to their travelers at Bradley International Airport,” says Claude Guillaume, Senior Vice President of Operations for Paradies Lagardère’s Dining Division. “We look forward to serving and impressing guests with this gastropub-style restaurant that highlights unique flavors and supports local businesses by featuring excellent local craft beer, ciders, and craft cocktails.”
Since July 2023, Paradies Lagardère has been in the process of modernizing its offerings at Bradley International Airport. Among the first upgrades was the much-anticipated opening of the airport’s first Starbucks. Since then, Paradies Lagardère has also redesigned one of its New England Tavelmart locations, which reopened last fall as the Charter Oak Emporium. It is in the process of refreshing one of its New England Travelmarts, which is expected to open in the coming days. Both CNBC Stores will soon go through a remodel as well – with one of them opening as a new concept called CT River Landing.
Paradies Lagardère also operates the iStore and Avanti Marketplace at BDL.
