The group behind competitive socialising brands Flight Club and Electric Shuffle will open three new sites in the UK as part of its international push.

Red Engine has announced plans to open Flight Club venues in Oxford and Liverpool as well as an Electric Shuffle in Manchester.

The openings are part of eight planned new venues this year, with an Electric Shuffle also planned for New York as well as Flight Clubs in Philadelphia and
Washington.

In Australia, Flight Clubs in Sydney and Melbourne are also in the pipeline.

Red Engine currently has 12 Flight Club venues across the UK and a further eight in the US and Australia with partners State of Play Hospitality and NightOwl Entertainment.

The update comes as the company celebrates 500 million darts thrown milestone at Flight Club.

The brand has welcomed more than 5 million guests, and sold more than 3.4 million cocktails, and 1.3 million pizzas, it says.

Flight Club was founded in 2015 in Shoreditch by Steve Moore and Paul Barham. They pair later created Electric Shuffle, a high-tech version of shuffleboard, which opened in London in 2019, and which now has five venues across the UK and US.

“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,” says CEO Moore.

“We are so grateful to our guests who have visited us in their millions, and it’s because of them that we are constantly innovating and iterating – so that we can continue to give people unforgettable moments of unexpected, ridiculous, joy.”
