Darts-themed bar and restaurant Flight Club Houston is coming to Regent Square, a mixed-use development between the River Oaks and Montrose areas in late 2021, according to a news release.

The Britain-based club will provide a social gaming experience that centers around Flight Club’s signature “social darts,” and the eatery will also offer dishes and cocktails, according to the news release. Dishes available in Flight Club’s Boston and Chicago locations include a BLT, mini shrimp tacos, a Buffalo chicken sandwich, three different types of flatbreads and various other options. Flight Club’s drink menu at those locations includes eight different types of cocktails.

“Houston is an incredibly diverse city with vibrant food and drink scene—we are so thrilled that our first Texas location will be in this market,” U.S. President of State of Play Alan Cichon said.

State of Play is the exclusive operating partner for Flight Club in North America, according to the news release.

“We cannot wait to be a part of the fabric that makes up the Houston culture,” Cichon said.

Flight Club Houston will be situated in the city’s Regent Square located at 1203 Dunlavy St. The location with the development has not been confirmed by Community Impact Newspaper. This article will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
