360 capacity venue opens on King Street this Autumn
· Bookings now open
Flight Club, the world’s first ‘Social Darts’ venue, has officially announced it is to open in Manchester this October.
Reinventing darts for the 21st century, the ‘Social Darts’ experience will launch in the heart of the city on King Street.
The venue, which will be one of the biggest in the UK, will include Flight Club’s feature bar and 14 oches (the darts playing area) – each with its own seating area and table service, and a private room for birthdays, special events and office team-building.
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.
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 than can connect up to 150 players at once), patented dart tracking technology (designed specifically by Flight Club’s own astrophysicist), instant scoring, and a ‘slick’ user interface, reimagining matches into supercharged and exciting social experiences.
Already situated in London and Chicago, over half a million players have, to date, thrown over 41 million darts in Flight Club venues across the world.
CEO, Steve Moore, who co-founded Flight Club alongside Paul Barham, said: “We’re on a mission to get the whole country playing Social Darts. We’ve been keen to become a part of the innovative Manchester nightlife scene since the beginning, and King Street will be our first location in the UK outside London.”
“Manchester is renowned for its outstanding heritage, unique culture, vibrant social life, and of course, competitive spirit so bringing a Flight Club to the city is a natural step for us, and we’re buzzing to be a part of the community.”
“We will be working with the people of Manchester to make sure that there is a little bit of the Manchester personality in our new venue and can’t wait to show everyone around.”
Combining the heritage of darts – the pub and the fairground, in its décor, Flight Club’s bar will serve a selection of craft beers and cocktails, alongside a seasonally inspired menu including light sharing plates and show-stopping pizza paddles.
Oches at Flight Club’s existing venues are regularly reserved up to three months in advance, and bookings for Flight Club’s launch in Autumn open this Tuesday 10th July.
