Flight Club’s impressive expansion of London isn’t at all surprising when you visit one of their bars, which can be found in Islington, Shoreditch, Victoria, and Bloomsbury.
They have taken a simple and, let’s be honest, usually very drunk past time and taken it into the world of luxury. They have twisted the idea in with some cool technology and wicked decor to create the Flight Club brand.
In each of the glam wood-panelled, fair ground themed venues, each board sits under the watchful eye of 3 precision cameras which identify the location of each dart to sub-millimetre accuracy.
This system also keeps score of who’s turn it is, the scores required by a user and will showcase all of this with some, quite frankly, brilliant graphics. So, all you have to focus on is your drink and the company around you, the computer does the rest for you… now you see why it works so well!
In addition to this, there are action-replay cams for you to savour your winning moments, and even boomerangs of them! Victory never tasted so sweet.
As with any successful bar, the food has to be up to scratch. Flight club offer pizzas, snack plates, sliders and small snacks for you to enjoy at your game.
If you really want to feel like a winner, why not order their sharing cocktail, which is served in a giant golden trophy.
