Introducing Flight Club

Flight Club has revamped the classic pub game of darts, bringing it in line with the 21st century by adding state-of-the-art automatic scoring, slick touchscreens, eclectic interiors and an accomplished cocktail list.

The Bloomsbury venue is an impressive modern entertainment experience, with a spectacular carousel bar taking centre stage. The seven spacious oches each hold up to 20 players, an at-oche food and drink service, and a further private room for up to 60 guests.

Our Work

Under a minute’s-walk from Oxford Street, Flight Club Bloomsbury is perfectly located for punters, but presented an immediate challenge for our project managers.

Flight Club is contained within the ground floor and basement of a twelve-story, multi-tenanted building. With filming and sound recording studios on adjacent floors, schedules were enforced which prohibited any noise beyond ‘normal construction’ levels within set hours. With an ambitious design and tight time-frames, this presented a considerable challenge for our project and cost managers. The strong relationship we built with the landlord and existing tenants helped ensure the project stayed on-track.

The existing staircase had to be moved and redesigned to accommodate the ground floor private room, which contains an additional three oches and its very own bar for up to 60 guests. Prior to this however, considerable enabling works were also required. Unexpected structural and levels issues required all floor joists to be moved, making a significant impact on space and design.

A fairground designer collaborated with the interior design team on this project to create the bespoke carousel bar. The complex design and sheer size of the bar meant it was needed to be built in panels, sent to the designers to complete, and delivered back to site for assembly. This called for additional detailed organisation, however our experience of similar projects helped us to smoothly navigate these challenges, with plans built in at the outset for such occurrences.

Thanks to our strong working relationship with the client and all parties involved, we’re proud to have delivered Flight Club Bloomsbury on budget in under 18 weeks.
