Flight Club, the world’s first ‘Social Darts’ venue, is now open in Birmingham. Following a launch event last night where over 250 invited guests were among the very first to experience what the venue has to offer, Flight Club today opens its doors to the public in Birmingham. With a fabulously immersive interior, taking inspiration from the tradition of darts at the fairground and the pub, Flight Club on Temple Street looks set to become one of this summer’s must visit new venues.
‘Social Darts’ is all about re-inventing the game for the 21st century. The venue's supercharged version of the traditional game involves multiple players (each oche will allow 12 people to play at once with tournament tech that can connect up to 150 players at once), patented dart tracking technology (designed specifically by Flight Club’s own astrophysicist), instant scoring, reimagining matches into fast-paced, exciting social experiences.
After Manchester, Flight Club Birmingham becomes the second opening outside of London. The venue boasts a feature bar and 13 oches (the darts playing area), each with its own seating area and table service. Or, if visiting with a bigger party, there are bookable spaces available for groups of 30 to 170, with the additional option of hiring the whole venue.
Of course, alongside the darts the venue also offers an excellent food and beverage selection. The feature bar, with its décor inspired by the heritage of darts at the pub and the fairground, serves a selection of craft beers and cocktails, alongside a seasonally inspired menu including light sharing plates, show-stopping pizza paddles, and no trip is complete without a signature slushie. With food and drinks packages available for larger groups, it’s set to be a brilliant addition to the Birmingham leisure scene.
CEO, Steve Moore, who co-founded Flight Club alongside Paul Barham, said: "We’ve been working on the new venue for some time now and we’re beyond excited that the doors are finally open. Birmingham is such a great city and the appetite for new and exciting venues makes it the perfect place to introduce our modern invention of darts. We can’t wait for the people of Birmingham to come and experience just what ‘Social Darts’ is all about; unexpected, ridiculous, joy with our own unique Flight Club touches thrown in along the way! For us, it’s all about creating the perfect venue for a night out, good food, great drinks and loads of fun!"
Since launching in 2015, Flight Club has become a key player in the experiential nightlife scene, credited with taking the best bits of the sport and turning it into a social experience and night out with friends or colleagues.
Already situated in London, Manchester and Chicago, over a million players have, to date, thrown just under 92 million darts in Flight Club venues across the world.
Oches at Flight Club’s existing venues are regularly reserved for up to three months in advance, and bookings are now open for Birmingham priced £30 per hour on-peak and £15 per hour off-peak.
