National food and beverage operator, Mosaic Pub & Dining, has announced the launch of a brand new concept bar in Birmingham. Opening in the city’s Jewellery Quarter location next month, 180 Club is a late-night destination bar specialising in darts.
Following the group’s acquisition of The Rectory last September, alongside two other Birmingham pubs for a total of £1.3 million, this is the latest investment in the city from Mosaic Pub & Dining. The 2000 sq ft basement space, located on st Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter, will undergo an extensive refurbishment to create this brand-new concept bar.
180 Club will be home to six darts lanes, including a private room, and will be able to host up to 14 players per lane. The electronic darts boards showcase the height of technology, giving the city’s experience-seekers a place to showcase their skills. Aiming to reposition darts to a new demographic, 180 Club will also be a late night hot spot, offering shots, sharer cocktails and New York-style snacks.
Peter McDonald CEO , from Mosaic Pub & Dining, comments: “This is a new concept for Birmingham, but also for Mosaic Pub & Dining, but we know that this new underground darts experience can really work and we’re proud that Birmingham is going to be our pioneer city. Since our acquisition of three pubs last summer, we now have six sites in the city; all of which are thriving, so it was a no-brainer to choose Birmingham as the location for the first 180 Club.
“The concept is simple; we’re making darts cool; bringing the fast-paced competitive nature of the sport into the 21st Century and giving consumers a great experience. We’re seeing more and more the importance of the experiential bar scene, and this is the next step in our dedication to giving Mosaic Pub & Dining venues a point of difference.”
With 21 venues across the country, this underground darts concept at The Rectory is a first for Mosaic Pub & Dining, joining its existing Birmingham venues; The Button Factory, The Distillery, Frederick Street Townhouse, Queens Arms, and The Florence.
“We can’t wait to share 180 Club with everyone; with great cocktails, delicious food, and, of course, darts, we hope Birmingham enjoys our offer as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing the brand to life. We look forward to welcoming the city soon,” concluded Peter McDonald CEO.
180 Club will open its doors in April. To find out more, visit @180ClubB3, www.180club.co.uk.
