Fortitude Valley’s Oche is all about three things – darts, cocktails and delicious eats. Fresh from a successful launch in Oslo, Norway in 2018, Oche (defined as the line which players must stand behind in the game of darts) opened on Constance Street in the Old Flour Mill building at the tail-end of 2019. The concept, which delivers what the Oche team calls an ‘analogue social experience’, is a form of hospitality designed to get folks off their phone and into the moment. Oche is equipped with electronic versions of traditional dartboards, each machine built with dozens of games to play and automatic scoring (so there’s no arguing over points). In addition to the games, Oche also boats a phenomenal food offering designed so as to be enjoyable even when eaten with one free hand. Ben Williamson (22 Agnes) has loaned his considerable services for the menu design, which features vegan and vegetarian-friendly options and morsels designed to be shared. Cocktails are also a big feature alongside a formidable beer and wine list, with one of Oche’s two bars dedicated to showcasing a different local brew master, wine maker or distiller every month . The venue itself emphasises the heritage elements of the 115-year-old building, with an outdoor terrace and two bars capable of catering to 360 patrons.
