Mile-High Club

When it comes to travel, you’re all class.

Coach class, that is.

But not for long: You won’t have to fight for the armrest at the new aviation-themed Fly Lounge. Fly’s space (formerly Red) features custom-cut aircraft aluminum for the walls and bar stools, F-14 tail parts for champagne buckets, flat-screen monitors for windows, and a TWA-esque logo — so you really get the feeling you’re at a party 30,000 feet in the air.

Stretch your legs by walking between the two bars or get the blood flowing by dancing to the eclectic mix of house, hip-hop, and reggae. Want a speedy upgrade? In a couple of weeks you’ll be able to register online, then use the finger-scan at the door to announce your arrival. Once inside, you’ll find your table and drinks ready and waiting.

With this kind of luxury on the ground, who needs the friendly skies?

Fly Lounge, 1802 Jefferson Place NW, near the intersection of 18th Street and Connecticut Avenue (202-828-4433 or flyloungedc.com).
