Flight Cleveland

Last Saturday evening, Mr. H and I popped in to the newly opened Flight Cleveland wine bar and shop that took over the former Latitude 41 space on Detroit Avenue.

Featuring 29 bottles of assorted wines on tap that line the stylish and modern bar are on a special wine-preservation system, helping the wine last two weeks rather than a couple of days. You can try any of the wines in sample pours or by the glass, but you're encouraged to choose one of the 12 pre-selected Flights (featuring fun names!) to push yourself out of your comfort zone and compare some wines side-by-side.
That's the route we both went, and we found a couple that we will want to purchase by the full glass or bottle in the future. Score! These adorable cards are served with each wine in the flight, sharing origin and notes about the wine. So appreciated.
In addition to the bar featuring the tap wines (and four craft beers and limited spirits), there is a wine shop section featuring 400 bottles of wine for all price points. There is no kitchen, but you can grab a couple of small bites like a cheese plate or olives while you sip.

The space has had a complete overhaul, and now includes cozy nooks with soft seating, an 18-seat bar, and a handful of low tables. The lighting, decor, and color theme all mix the traditional with the modern and bold with subtle. I found it adorable, and with several Instagram-worthy spots. I couldn't stop staring at the gorgeous, bold floral wallpaper outside the restrooms.

It's only been open for a short time, but it was buzzing on Saturday night with people of all ages. Service was so attentive and helpful in making our wine selections. It'll be a perfect pre or post-dinner stop for us in the future!

I can't wait to check this place out! I'm really happy they have some beer too - it's nice if there is someone in the group who wants something besides wine.
