The Wing


Update: Starting March 14, the Wing’s DC location will be closed temporarily, as will the group’s other spots across the globe. The group announced this decision in a press release sent on March 13. The Wing expects its clubs to remain closed until at least March 31, with the possibility they may remain closed longer. Wing employees that are paid hourly will still receive payment for the shifts they were scheduled to work.


As of now, the group’s DC location in Georgetown will remain open. In a Medium post, the group says it has postponed high-volume events, increased sanitation efforts, and asked employees to cancel international and domestic business travel. In an event that a Wing location has to close, hourly employees will still be paid for scheduled work, according to the post.
