Flight Club Islington invites you to step up to the oche.
You certainly can’t accuse the Flight Club team of resting on their laurels, can you? In the same month that they’ll launch swanky new shuffleboard concept Electric Shuffle, the fun-loving team will open up the fourth London branch of their luxury Social Darts experience. Flight Club Islington is an intimate space – especially when compared to their biggest site, Flight Club Victoria – but one full of cutting-edge technology, top cocktails, and surprisingly high-stakes competition…
Opening on bustling Upper Street on November 22nd, Flight Club Islington boasts the same hi-tech wizardry of Flight Club’s previous spots, with the cosy feel of an upmarket British pub. You’ll find four oches inside, three of which are found in The Parlour, a charming bookable space that’s perfect for birthday parties, work gatherings, or a top-notch Saturday night.
State-of-the-art darts tracking technology (designed by Flight Club’s in-house astrophysicist – yes, you did read that correctly) brings a new level of precision to the game, and means there’s no quibbling over whether it’s a treble 20 or not because IT’S CLEARLY OVER THE LINE SARAH. In a bar full of triumphs, this might be the noblest thing Flight Club has done for the world.
The tech-enhanced darts board also invites less traditional versions of the game, including the likes of ‘Killer’, in which you’ll have to hit certain areas of the board to eliminate your rivals from the game and be the last person standing. Trust us when we say it’s worth putting your friendships on the line for!
Elsewhere, you’ll be able to enjoy a range of delicious treats, including Flight Club’s excellent sharing plates and pizza paddles, and some dangerously delicious boozy slushies. Of course, if it’s a victory toast you’re after, you can’t beat the giant cocktail that comes served in a trophy. Really, it’s the least a winner deserves…
Find Flight Club Islington at 56 Upper Street, N1 0NY, from November 22nd.
