Darts enjoyment for all in Taichung

Words and translated by Renee Chiu

Starting from the late 19th century, before it became a global competitive sport, darts were considered a traditional pub game in Great Britain. Thanks to its growth in popularity and players in modern times, it was only a matter of time before enterprising business people made dart-themed restaurants a reality. Such places provide customers with a laid-back setting to play darts in while also enjoying tasty food with friends or family.

There are a number of dart games with different scoring systems and, in order to promote this fun pastime, darts restaurant owners periodically host contests that offer significant awards to players. If you enjoy darts, or want to learn, following are four of the best-known places in Taichung.
