Atlanta, GA. (July 15, 2020) – The Allen Morris Company, one of the largest diversified real estate firms in the southeast, along with Flight Club, the UK-based restaurant and cocktail bar featuring a high-tech spin on the game of darts, announced today they will be opening in Star Metals Offices in Atlanta’s West Midtown. Flight Club is scheduled to open in early 2022.
Flight Club, the home of Social Darts™, has taken the traditional game of darts and revolutionized it with ground-breaking technology that enables automatic scoring and runs exciting multi-player games for groups from 6 people up to 400+. Flight Club Atlanta will offer a completely new group social experience housed in a beautiful venue with premium food & beverage offerings. With 6 locations in the U.K., and 2 locations in the U.S., Flight Club has been bringing ridiculous, unexpected joy to pub-goers since 2015. Each Flight Club location is unique, capturing local magic and combining it with the thrill of the fairgrounds. To date, Flight Club has won 18 awards, over two million people have tried their hand, and over 130 million darts have been thrown.
Flight Club is operated in the United States by State Of Play Hospitality (formerly Social Entertainment Ventures), known for delivering exceptionally high quality, activity-based hospitality brands. They had previously announced the signing of a 10,000 square foot lease at the Star Metals development, but the specific concept was not disclosed until now.

The 15-story, trophy LEED certified Star Metals Offices totals 267,000 square feet, inclusive of 40,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, and showroom.
