The first-ever augmented reality darts venue, La Di Darts has opened its doors in Sydney’s Darlinghurst next door to Holey Moley’s mini golf venue.

The 2022 rendition of the classic pub activity is a gamified darts experience that utilises a projected field of play and a traditional dart board. Leaning on modern technology, competition darts are thrown at the board and the scores are electronically captured in real time.

There are four different games available for up to seven players to suit all experience levels and the experience is complemented by Gatsby themed private booths and a bespoke cocktail menu.

La Di Darts have not only recreated dart classics such as ‘Killer’ and ‘Disco Wall’ (also known as ‘301’), they have added new games such as ‘Robin Hood’, which sees the dartboard morph into an archery target in a race to the most points.

Conceptualised and created by Funlab, famous for Holey Moley, Strike Bowling and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq, the brand is thrilled to bring this brand new concept to the country, with Sydney as the host of the first-ever venue.

“We are stoked to bring La Di Darts to Sydney’s entertainment scene, adding our signature Funlab twist to such a classic and iconic pub-friendly game that everyone can enjoy,” Funlab chief growth and innovation officer, Blaise Witnish said.

“We wanted to create an epic space for social gatherings and given the glamorous theme and eclectic insta-worthy cocktail offering, next to Darlinghurst’s Holey Moley location seemed to be the perfect spot to roll out the gameplay. While Sydney gets the first taste at La Di Darts, there is the prospect of launching this concept throughout other locations Australia-wide in the future.”
