Yeah, we know what you’re thinking. A shooting experience in the heart of London? Surely that can’t be safe – and surely you need plenty of room for clay shooting with the targets and all? Well, Clays has the answer to all of these conundrums with one simple solution: go virtual! That’s right, thanks to their virtual experience you can now enjoy the thrills and excitement of clay target shooting, with all the trappings of a night out in London.
Okay, so, what is it? A glorified version of Duck Hunt on a big screen? Not exactly, because you’ve never played a game of Duck Hunt quite like this. Also, am I betraying my age with the Duck Hunt reference? No matter. Let me walk you through the experience…
The Clays experience
Show up at Clays and you’ll be taken to your group’s semi-private ‘peg.’ It’s like a clay-shooting bowling lane, but with a massive 4K screen on which the experience takes place. There the competition gets underway, with plenty of action across multiple games. Got lots of friends who want to join in? The more the merrier at Clays, where up to 22 people can game together in each peg.
And when you fancy some food or drinks you can easily order through your in-peg touchscreen kiosk. No need to even leave the game, or wander off to find the bar. They boast some of the best drinks in town, from signature and classic cocktails – which can even be bought in sharing bottles – to shots, wines, beers, and non-alcoholic options. Everyone is sure to easily find their drink of choice on the menu.
Meanwhile, the food menu encompasses a whole host of sharing plates and flatbreads piled high with deliciousness. We’re talking Truffle Parmesan Chips, Crispy Chicken or Pulled Beef Sliders, Korean Fried Cauliflower, Za’atar Spiced Loaded Bread with 24-Hour Braised Lamb, and loads more. You definitely don’t want to come here and miss out on the food and drinks.
To add even more excitement to your weekend clay-shooting sessions, DJs take to the decks every weekend. So, is Clays set to be the perfect place to spend your next evening out? It sure looks that way.
The pro-tip here is to book you peg ahead of time, especially with a group. And when you do, be sure to peruse the options for pre-booking food and drinks – you can get some pretty incredible discounts that way!
Clays has two locations in London, one in Moorgate (55 Moorgate, EC2R 6LL) and one in Canary Wharf (Unit B1 on the wharf, 1 Cabot Square, E14 4QJ). Head to the website to book your next night out!
