The Blue Posts - Oxford Circus
81 Newman St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 3ET
Confusingly named pub delivers the darts goods. Bullseye! Helpfully there are at least 5 other pubs named The Blue Posts in central London, one within 5 minutes walk, so make sure you're friends no which one you're headed to before you meet up. The one with dartboard should be sufficient explanation, and if they don't know which one that is, then you don't need that negativity in your life. Truth be told there are better options for darts nearby like The Champion (http://www.dartslondon.co.uk/pubs/the-champion-oxford-circus) or the Bricklayers arms (http://www.dartslondon.co.uk/pubs/bricklayers-arms-tottenham-court-road), but The Blue Posts is a decent back-up and can be another stop on the Oxford Circus darts pub crawl. The board is located on the far wall in the reasonably small downstairs bar, and given the limited space around it's often blocked by tables and seated drinkers. If it's not blocked it's usually busy, so The Blue Posts is an option in Fitzrovia but prepare for a long wait for a game.
Easy to get on the board?
Keeping the dartboard visible in the main bar of the pub is obvious great for getting the good word of darts out there, but it does make the board popular, so get there early if you want a game. Worth having a back-up pub in mind.
Rest of pub
Downstairs the pub is all classic wood panelling and dim lighting, while upstairs is the same but with threatening barflies listening to your every word. So stick on the ground floor with the dartboard.
It's another Sam Smiths so cheap prices ahoy.
How to get there
