Dart Bar "Flight Club" in Downtown, Chicago
Playing darts while hanging out with some friends, eating some bar food, and downing some drinks is truly a match made in heaven. At "Flight Club" in Downtown Chicago, you can enjoy darts in a bit of a more upbeat and trendy environment. It's an upscale place compared to other dark and dingy bars, but it doesn't break the bank. It was $40 an hour - I went here with some friends, but looking at the website it looks like they changed it to $12 per person, which is still a great price!

Playing darts and having some bar food and drinks is truly a match made in heaven. What makes it even better is when the establishment is a bit more upbeat and trendy than most dingy dark bars that offer darts. This is certainly the case at "Flight Club" downtown Chicago. Flight Club is a bar with a great selection of beers, cocktails, bar food, and more. But of course, it wouldn't be one of my favorites without its sensational take on darts. There numerous booths with one dart board, so it is geared towards people coming with a group to hangout for a few hours. It's your typical dartboard, but with a synchronized TV screen keeping track of points, and allowing you to play a variety of different dart games. I could not recommend this place enough, it's a great activity to intertwine with a night of socializing, eating, and kicking back a few drinks.
