Trendy darts is coming to the city centre this summer.

Flight Club will open on 13 Temple Street- in the building formerly occupied by TSB bank.

The chain, which describes itself as 'the home of Social Darts ',  is a world away from the old fashioned image of the game.

The Flight Club updated version of darts involves multiple players and some whizzy tracking technology.

All the scoring is done for you - similarly to bowling, so you don't have to add up or think! There is also table service to keep players refreshed with cocktails, wine and beers.

The brand which opened its first venue in Shoreditch in 2015,  now has branches in London's Bloomsbury as well as Chicago in the US.

Most recently it opened on King Street in Manchester.

The decor of the new Birmingham site will nod to the game's fairground roots - thanks to a carousal style bar - complete with carnival lights as well as cosy playing areas known as oches.

Flight Club Co-Founder Steve Moore told BirminghamLive: " Whilst our Birmingham venue will have its own unique personality, all our venues are inspired by the Victorian heritage of darts; the pub and the fairground.

"We can't say much more for now, but we’re ridiculously excited to be opening in Birmingham."

Flight Club is not the only darts venue to be opening in the city this year.

There has been a spate of alternative entertainment venues opening in Brum over the past couple of years.

These include Ghetto Golf in DigbethLane7 bowling venue at The Cube  and  SERVE  ping pong on 55 Temple Row.

 

What's on the food and drink menu?

Flight Club hosts brunch socials costing from £25 per person - price includes pizza, prosecco and darts

Brummies will be able to order food to their playing area from a menu including pizzas and sharing plates such as nachos, sliders and tacos.  A Flight Club menu bestseller is their mac and cheese dish. 

Drinkswise, players can keep refreshed with a wide range of wines,  draught and bottled beers and ciders.

There is an interesting cocktail menu including sharing trophy cocktails - served in Flight Club's 'show stopping trophy cup.'
