Beauty is a Wine Bar, Bottle Shop, Bistro and Boutique that is known for its "Bottles, Bites & Other Delights."
Owner Zena Polin is the founder of The Daily Dish in Silver Spring and The Dish & Dram in Kensington, MD. When Covid began she decided she wanted to focus on restaurants that had a lifestyle component. She was looking for a more intimate space where she could return to two of her loves, wine and baking.
In May 2022, Beauty Champagne and Sugar Boutique was born, Located in the little Blue House on the corner of Fern and 23rd Streets in National Landing, Beauty is a feast for all the senses.
During season, a couple of tables are set up outside under large black and white umbrellas. This is where their Saturday wine tasting is held. Guests then walk up the steps into the Victorian house.
The 800 square foot space is divided into three rooms. The main entrance is nicknamed The Sugar Lounge and is filled with homemade cakes, bars and cookies as well as chocolates, candy and gifts. 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 “Bellezza Wine Club” will begin soon and will 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 housemade focaccia and dips, cheese and charcuterie and signature desserts baked by Zena, like Knock You Naked Bars, Rice Krispy Treats and Beauty's Decadent Chocolate Cake. Beauty’s signature cookie, The Guilty Pleasure, is made with housemade marshmallow fluff, dark chocolate chunks and potato chips is perfect with a selection from their “Beautiful Surprises.”
Wines served by the glass feature Women and African-American winemakers and families, with an appealing selection of sparklings as well as the featured drink, “Bizzarro Love Triangle.”
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, we 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.
