I’ve never been great at darts.
No matter how hard I tried, I would always end up missing the board and puncturing holes in the walls. No exaggeration.
So when I heard about a new bar in Manchester where you could also have a few games of darts, I can’t say I was immediately enthused.
OH…how wrong I was. Turns out I’m effing brilliant. I may even go as far as saying it’s one of my favourite bar experiences in Manchester.
Flight Club is the kind of place you go to after work to chill, relax and have a few games of darts.
And not just regular, boring darts you imagine in a social club on a Tuesday night.
There are several multi-player game options available for you and your mates to have a go at, including Snakes and Ladders (whichever number your dart land on is the number of moves on the board) or Killer, where you team up and try and eliminate your competition by landing on their numbers.
New food and drink to try while you play…
Flight Club has completely refreshed their food and drinks menus, with some delicious additions such as Korean sesame pork bites with spring onion, beef sliders, vegetable gyoza with dipping sauce, BBQ aubergine tacos with mango salsa and a fish finger wrap.
We went along and tried some of the new dishes that Manchester’s Flight Club has to offer and they didn’t disappoint. Everything is freshly made with an abundance of flavour. There is a bar snack element to them, not too much that they feel insubstantial but enough that you can enjoy them over a game of darts.
The cocktail selection at Flight Club is substantial and offers fresh takes on some modern classics, such as their Social Darts Spritz (lemongrass infused Aperol, peach and jasmine soda, prosecco) or their Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, which comes with a printed Lady Luck image on the foam.
That’s not all – Flight Club has some great food and drink deals on offer. You’ll get a free bottle of prosecco when you book lunch for six people or more. They host “fizz hour” every day between 5pm and 7pm, where you’ll get a bottle of prosecco for £20 or a bottle of Champagne for £40.
Plus, they serve cocktail slushes for the hot, summer months in two exciting flavours: the Coco Fumada and the Watermelon Crush.
In short, I had an incredible evening at Flight Club. I’m not one for giving out compliments lightly, but I’d say it’s one of my favourite experiences in Manchester. It’s fun, it’s competitive, and there are plenty of multi-player games to keep you entertained all evening.
