Beauty Champagne & Sugar Boutique opens in National Landing, VA

A Lifestyle Market for Wine Lovers & Food Addicts 

(April, 2022–Crystal City, VA) – Meshelle Armstrong, co-owner of Kaliwa, Restaurant Eve, Society Fair, PX and Eammon’s a Dublin Chipper has partnered with Zena Polin, founder of The Dish & Dram and The Daily Dish in Beauty Champagne & Sugar Boutique, which will open on the corner of Fern and 23rd Streets in Crystal City, VA on May 4th.  The concept is a Champagne and Wine bar and a Lifestyle Market that is “Devoted to Delicious” with pantry items and luxury gifts.  

The 800 square foot space is divided into three rooms. The main entrance is filled with homemade cakes, brownies and cookies as well as chocolates, lollipops, candies, mocktails and drinks. To the right is the Wine Room with a wide selection of bottles, from everyday wines to elegant champagnes that are displayed in the Wine Closet. The “Belleza Wine Club” will begin in Spring and offer special bottles, tastings, classes and discounts to members. 

To the left are the “Grab & Go” and “Little Luxuries” areas, as well as a 12-seat restaurant that serves light bites, including flatbread and dips, cheese and charcuterie, soups and sandwiches, and the signature desserts that made Society Fair famous, including coconut cake, rice krispy treats and the Big Ass Chocolate Cake. Wines served by the glass are women-inspired, with an appealing selection of sparklings as well as the featured drink, “Bizzarro Love Triangle.” Beauty’s signature cookie, The Guilty Pleasure, created by Polin and made with housemade marshmallow fluff, dark chocolate chunks and potato chips is perfect with a selection from their “Beautiful Surprises.”

Beauty’s “Cocktail Kingdom” has booze accoutrements as well as non-alcoholic spirits and wine. A pantry with daily staples includes a selection of gluten-free pastas and pastry mixes. In addition, boss ladies Armstrong & Polin teamed with local, female entrepreneurs to create unique offerings, such as Sexy Thyme and Subbourbon Dad candles from Blissburg Candles and a hot and cold coffee selection from Southeastern Roastery. 

“We are excited to be a part of this neighborhood and the greater National Landing community,” Armstrong said.  “We look forward to welcoming guests and guiding them on an epicurean tour,” added Polin.  

Polin and Armstrong had both helmed RAMMY award-winning restaurants when they began collaborating at Hummingbird Bar + Kitchen on the waterfront in Alexandria. Armstrong’s vision and success with Society Fair, a beloved Old Town fixture, combined with Polin’s passion for wine and baking make them the perfect team. In 2020, they began looking for a space for their concept and in 2021 found a former Victorian-style home about a minute’s drive from the new Amazon headquarters.

Beauty has an on and offsite wine and beer license. Hours of operation are Tues. to Fri. 11:30am to 9pm; Sat. and Sun.10am to 9pm. Instagram: beautysocietyfair, @thedailydishdc, @meshe_armstrong @dishesanddrams, Facebook:
