We've reinvented darts for the 21st century, developing a range of fast and exciting multi-player games built to bring people together and designed to keep you unexpectedly hooked, insatiably entertained and full of joy. Whether you're an expert darts sniper or a total beginner, everyone has a chance to win when they play Social Darts!
In 2012 Co-Founders Steve Moore and Paul Barham were catching up in a Devon pub where a young crowd were going crazy over a game of darts in the corner; this wasn't like traditional darts; it was loud, fast and exciting – and they saw an opportunity.
Forever on the hunt for new and exciting experiences to share with their friends, Flight Club gave them a chance to combine the warmth and nostalgia of the traditional British pubs that they loved with the high energy of Social Darts.
But how do you begin to get a business like this off the ground – especially with no experience in the hospitality or technology industries which it will straddle?
Steve and Paul surrounded themselves with people who knew what they didn't. From the technology to the fundraising - they forged relationships with the most impressive people they could find, called in favours and roped in old school buddies.
As well as investing their money, their friends were generous with their time. Over 200 of them threw 1 million test darts. Thanks to them, our first customers, Flight Club transformed from an experience which only existed in Steve's garden shed to beautiful venues packed with unexpected, ridiculous, joy!
Our customers are at the core of who we are. Thanks to this passionate community, our journey continues – with more spectacular venues filled with guests going wild in the oche, making incredible memories with their friends.
In 2015, we opened Flight Club Shoreditch and watched the joy of Social Darts come to life. As Steve and Paul imagined, groups of friends went crazy in the oche, and every throw was as energised as the last. Since then, we've opened incredible venues throughout the UK, from Cardiff to Manchester to Birmingham to Bristol; they all have the same electrifying atmosphere as the first!
And that's not all; we've taken the Social Darts global! With our franchise partners, State of Play Hospitality and NightOwl Entertainment, we've opened incredible venues in the USA and Australia. From the bright lights of Las Vegas to the beautiful city of Perth, the joy of Social Darts continues!
We want people everywhere to experience the joy of Social Darts!
And it's only fitting that the next stop on our journey is Scotland! Where we're opening not one but two incredible venues. One in a breathtaking building on Glasgow's George Street and another in the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh.
