Work begins on Cardiff’s new darts bar Flight Club as opening date teased


The opening date for Cardiff’s new ‘social darts’ bar has been teased as work on the huge city centre venue gets underway. Bar chain Flight Club announced last year that they were opening a new venue in the capital after enjoying success elsewhere in the UK.

The bar’s unique concept sees the classic pub game given a “supercharged” modern makeover and combined with food and free-flowing cocktails, with customers promised a “spectacular bar, electric atmosphere and mind-blowing experience”.

The new venue is set to open on the popular St Mary Street, taking over the 400 square metre site formerly occupied by Beanfreaks health food store and Creams dessert bar. Work is now underway on the huge four-storey building, with scaffolding and boards erected outside it.

While the exact opening date of the bar is still unknown, the chain has revealed that it is set to open its doors in the autumn. It will be the second sports-themed venue to move onto the street this year, after Gareth Bale’s mini golf bar Par 59 opened in March.

The darts bar – which has other venues in London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and Birmingham – will allow groups of up to 20 to book out their own playing area equipped with a board with tracking technology and an instant scoring system. The games are designed with beginners in mind, so whether you’re an arrows expert or a complete novice, everyone has the chance to win.

The tournament technology can connect over 100 players within the venue, while instant scoring eliminates any need for counting and makes matches more fast-paced and exciting. Each uniquely-designed playing area has a ‘call the waiter’ button if you want to order drinks or a bite to eat, while there is also the option to book out a table instead if you don’t fancy stepping up to the oche.

The Cardiff bar will also be used for larger events, with multiple oches combined to create hire spaces ideal for celebrations for between 40 and 250 people, with a ‘Fight Club Gamesmaster’ on hand to run a tournament and present medals to the winners. If groups are smaller than six customers, they are paired with another group to “give them a taster of what social darts has to offer”.

The new venue is set to create up to 35 full-time jobs. It will be open until 12.30am between Sunday and Wednesday and until 1.30am between Thursday and Saturday. You can read more about the new bar here.
