Taking traditional bar games to the next level

Find your competitive spirt at Origins


Origins bar, in Darwin College, is the perfect place to meet new people, hang out with friends, and enjoy some tasty treats.

Check out our new FREE-of-charge interactive darts and shuffleboards, available daily from 4pm – 11pm.


Get your shuffle on at Origins bar, which has two brand-new table shuffleboards! Designed for 2-8 players, these boards are the perfect way to chill with friends whilst keeping it competitive and fun.

Not played shuffleboard before? Don’t panic! Each player slides their weights down the table to earn points. The idea is, you want to slide your weight as far down the table as possible without it falling off the end! Weights which hang off the table are called ‘hangers’ and these are worth an extra point, so it’s definitely worth that risky shot.

Still unsure? Check out this Wiki How video which explains the rules and objectives of the game.
