The hugely popular experience will open its doors on South Parade on Friday June 25 - after rapid expansion outside of London.

The concept of mixing social darts with an English pub-like venue was born in a garden shed by co-founders Paul Barham and Steve Moore and officially launched in September 2015.

The new venue will house 13 oches (darts playing areas) and will have a total guest capacity of 400.

Flight Club Leeds will be the third venue outside of London.

Despite being halted by the ongoing lockdown restrictions, Flight Club is now ready to add Leeds to their growing repertoire of locations in Manchester and Birmingham.

The venue will also include a feature bar with tables for team drinks, birthday parties or just an impromptu night out.

Full or partial venue hire options are also available.

Food and cocktails will also be served at the new venue.

Flight Club’s Brunch Social, which runs Thursday to Sunday (12-2 and 2:30-4:30), involves bottomless pizza and a bottle of prosecco each.

CEO, Steve Moore, who co-founded Flight Club alongside Paul Barham, said: “We are delighted to finally announce the upcoming opening of Flight Club Leeds as the next step in our quest to get as many people stepping up to the throwline as possible.

“It’s been a wait and we are thrilled to be sharing our amazing venue with you all at long last!

"Our venues have brought unexpected, ridiculous, joy to three different UK cities so far and we are confident that the vibrant energy in Leeds makes it the perfect next chapter in the Flight Club story.

"After an incredibly challenging year, we want to bring some much needed joy into the lives of locals with some guaranteed fun!”

Flight Club blends the nostalgia and warmth of a British pub with the energy and excitement of a fairground in its atmosphere and decor.

Each venue has a unique set of wall decorations and antiques, carefully selected by Steve Moore and the team.

Bookings will go live on Wednesday May 11 and details will be announced on Flight Club social media platforms.

Oches at Flight Club’s existing venues are regularly reserved up to three months in advance.
