Team behind Flight Club to launch three new venues this year

Red Engine, the group behind Flight Club Darts, has disclosed its intentions to open three new venues in the UK throughout the current year.

The company is gearing up to introduce Flight Club Oxford, Flight Club Liverpool, and the spin-off brand Electric Shuffle, a high-tech version of shuffleboard, in Manchester.

The competitive darts bar, Flight Club, made its debut in London's Shoreditch in 2015, founded by Steve Moore and Paul Barham.

Since its inception, Flight Club has expanded its presence, establishing 12 venues across the UK. Additionally, the brand has ventured into the United States through State of Play Hospitality and entered the Australian market through NightOwl Entertainment.

The team introduced Electric Shuffle in 2019, and the brand has since grown to encompass five locations across the UK and the United States.

Red Engine, the operator of 20 venues spanning three continents, has outlined plans to open an additional eight venues worldwide in the year 2024.

Moore, co-founder and chief executive of Red Engine, said: 'When we set ourselves the challenge of making darts cool again, never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that a decade on, we'd be 20 venues in and celebrating such a huge milestone.'
