Aug 3, 2019, 4:04 AM

PHOENIX — If throwing sharp objects at a target is your cup of tea, you’re in luck.

Urban Axes, a 9,000-square foot axe-throwing venue located at 401 S. 1st Street, is set to open Aug. 23 in the Warehouse District of downtown Phoenix.

The location will feature six arenas with 24 targets. It can hold up to 150 axe throwers.

Urban Axes is exclusively 21 and older. Customers can walk in or set up group or private parties. There’s even an eight-week league that patrons can partake in, with a beer and wine bar at the establishment.

The company’s flagship store first opened in 2016 in Philadelphia, becoming the first axe-throwing venue in the country. There are five additional locations in Austin, Baltimore, Durham, Cincinnati and Boston. Three more venues are expected to open later this year in Houston and Philadelphia.

Visit Urban Axes’ website for more information on the company and its axe-throwing ways.
