LAS VEGAS (July 1, 2019) – FLIGHTS has landed on the Las Vegas Strip. The aviation-themed eatery, known for its tapas-style comfort food and one-of-a-kind cocktail program, celebrated the grand opening of its fifth location, and first outside of California, on Saturday, June 29.

Shareable entrees, small bites, sides, and a build-your-own slider flight are also available, as well as delectable desserts including a beignet flight and a cheesecake flight.
FLIGHTS allows guests the opportunity to try their favorite cocktails three different ways, including daiquiris, frozen margaritas, martinis, mules, mojitos, cosmopolitans and old fashioneds, as well as beer, wine and spirit flights.
