The founders of social darts bar Flight Club have announced that their second experiential concept Electric Shuffle will open in Canary Wharf in November.
Electric Shuffle will take the core elements of shuffleboard – which sees players use cues to push discs down a court into a scoring area – and reinvents it for the 21st century, founders Steve Moore and Paul Barham have said.
Visitors will step up to the shuffle table, which can hold up to 16 people at any one time, and can take part in three different games, each inspired by a different shuffleboard element.
Co-founders Steve Moore and Paul Barham said: “Since 2015, we've been on a mission to deliver exhilarating social experiences to as many people as possible. From a pipe dream in a Devon pub, to an ever-growing family of Flight Club venues, it's been an incredible journey so far.
“Now, it's time for the next step; a surprisingly competitive, delightfully immersive and outrageously thrilling transformation of another traditional pastime. And, we can't wait to share it with you!
“Shuffleboard’s exciting mix of skill and chance and its rich, but sadly forgotten history made it the obvious choice for our next step. It’s a game which has captivated everyone from Henry VIII through to the village landlord and our modern twist will wow Canary Wharf.”
The bar will offer a selection of craft beers and cocktails alongside a menu of sharing plates and pizzas.
