The Best Darts Venues in London

Just to clarify … when I say darts I don’t want you picturing a grubby old board down the local. On the whole we’re talking high-tech, multiplayer darts located in swanky venues offering exceptional food and, in most, a full cocktail bar. We’re talking, a proper night out.

So if you’re looking for a great night out for your date, time with your mates or to let loose with your work buds then let the Play List be your guide …

Flight Club Bloomsbury

Beautiful oches at Flight Club Bloomsbury

Social darts are back, baby, and better than ever!

First opened in April 2017, this Bloomsbury venue has made its mark on the London social scene ever since, complete with drinks, darts and good times. The Bloomsbury venue screams Victoriana, with beautiful portraits, stunning murals and a spectacular carousel themed bar – the only one of its kind in London, meaning it’s absolutely perfect for your Instagram stories.

Flight Club Islington

Just minutes from Angel Station on Upper Street, Flight Club Islington is another amazing addition to the Flight Club franchise. The Islington venue is kitted out just like a fairground, with a nod to the local area and the warmth and nostalgia of a British pub. If you’re feeling a bit peckish, grab a sharing plate or a pizza paddle, or perhaps, if you’re feeling fancy, grab a cocktail or two (did we mention that they have alcoholic slushies?). The automatic scoring system means you don’t have to worry about keeping track of either your scores or the amount of drinks you’ve had, bringing darts to an entirely new audience. Check them out this summer for a day you won’t forget.

On top of that, they’re streaming the very best in sports on their large screen TVs, so you can catch every minute of your favourite games as they happen, but the main draw is their interactive darts experience. With a variety of different games to choose from, there’s loads of fun to be had, and it’s a great chance to challenge your mates for a couple of rounds of drinks. Their Hexa-Gone game challenges you to clear the darts grid in the fewest turns, or maybe you’ll excel at Showtime, where if you score the most points, you win! Or perhaps, the Killer or Robin Hood games will be more your style. Perhaps Halve It? Or maybe you’re amazing at a classic game of darts. Either way, we’re sure you’ll have a great time celebrating your win at the bar afterwards. Check out their website  to find out more.
