Flight, Chinatown’s treasured wine bar since 2014, poured out its last glass in December. But now, the pioneering brand is set to make a triumphant comeback in Northern Virginia by the end of 2024.

Flight co-owners Swati Bose and Kabir Amir, who earned a James Beard semifinalist nod for Outstanding Wine Program in 2020 and 2023, just inked a 2,175-square-foot lease to reopen in National Landing (269 19th Court S., Arlington, Virginia). Flight fans can expect to find a familiar selection of small-production and terroir-driven varietals, but this time around, Flight will forgo its sit-down restaurant and bar model and largely function as a bottle shop instead. (Meanwhile, its original Chinatown space at 777 6th Street NW will get a new life this spring as a Mexican establishment called Mezcal Cantina. Its Maryland-based operator bought out Flight’s liquor license, Bose tells Eater.)
