I can finally say that I have been here. This is a great place to come to with your friends, to do something different. I clearly need to practice, because my axe bounced off the target and fell to the floor too many times!! They do serve canned drinks here, but no food. You'll have to bring your own.

My siblings and I took my dad here for a belated father's day. We did a private event and had the best time! The way the instruction and games were structured made it super fun and added in fun competition. Everyone I dealt with to get our event booked, front desk staff, and our coach were 10/10 awesome. We are looking forward to coming back and would definitely recommend!

i highly recommend this place! Lots of fun and amazing coaches. The venue is much larger than I thought it would be. It’s very spacious and certainly possible for your group to social distance from others. Ari was amazing! He taught our group the basics of axe throwing and he helped us correct our form throughout our playing experience. This made axe throwing 10x more fun because with help from a pro, you are more likely to enjoy what you’re doing! I’ll definitely be back! 10/10

I've been axe throwing here since earlier this year. I joined a league which has been a great way to make friends, get out of the house and have fun. the environment is great. All the coaches i've worked with are really helpful and really nice and know their stuff. They have a bar with a pretty good selection of local and non-local beer and wine, and also non-alcoholic drinks. You're welcome to bring food in, and there are a ton of good options nearby that offer takeout.

My team and I came here for a team building day and it was so much fun. Our instructor Bradley was amazing and really made the experience. Good drinks, good atmosphere, and fun for all! Definitely recommend.

I setup a corporate event for my team. About 10 of us made it out, and we all just had an absolute blast. I waited too long to write the review, and now I forget the gentleman's name (I want to say Brandon, but that could be totally off lol), who was our axe shaman for the day, but he was a super nice guy, good teacher, funny, and fun. The best I can do is say he had a slender build, and a long beard. Anyway, we had a great time, drink selection was good, staff was friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. We had a great time, many thanks from myself and my whole team!

Would highly recommend! Came here with a couple friends, several of whom were first-time throwers. Our instructor Bradley was hilarious and super personable. He was incredibly helpful and gave lots of useful tips. 2 hours was just the right amount of time for a group of 8. Everyone in the group had a great time!

Melanie was a great coach. Stayed with us throughout the hour, and taught us different games. I've done a lot of ax throwing and this is a really welcoming place, price point is good. Everyone was so nice and enthusiastic. They have awesome shirts

So much fun! Didn't know what to expect going into it since our group had never been before but it was great. We had Chewy as our instructor and he was awesome! Fun environment, friendly staff, and just a cool experience. Definitely hoping to come back soon.

Nice place to have a good time with friends and colleagues. It's a great stress buster. The instructors here are amazing... Special shout out to Chewie. They have a good selection of beers. The staff here are extremely cautious about your and their safety and that's for a good reason. I will be back again.

This was the first time my boyfriend and I went axe throwing, and we had a great time! I had zero experience throwing anything, but our coach, Mark, was very helpful in showing us what to do. He gave us several different techniques to try, and helped out with adjusting our form. He was very knowledgeable about what little things we needed to adjust like our stance, where in our throw we let go of the axe, etc. He made sure we were having a good time every step of the way. Even if we were struggling, he offered bits of advice to help us improve and maximize our fun. Both of us had an amazing time and we are talking it up to our friends so we can come back again with a big group. We’ll definitely need to have Mark as our coach next time, too!

I took my office to a team building event at Urban Axes and was pleasantly surprised. I knew my maintenance guys would take to it and have a blast, but I wasn't entirely sure my female staff would enjoy themselves. However, our coach, Bradly, was fantastic. He was patient, professional, and encouraging. Everyone got a feel and rhythm for it and a boost of confidence. I would encourage any business to bring their team out and enjoy some time together outside of the office.

We went here for our first time and had such a great time. Our host Melanie was the absolute best. She was very accommodating, informative and a pleasure to work with. We got in a lot of rounds once we got over the initial jitters. We’ll definitely go back again!

My boss decided to try something new for our team at work. We had a store meeting with five below. We went in and met Bradley. None of us had ever done this before. Bradley not only made it extremely easy to learn with his teaching approach. He literally made.it so much fun. Not just a stiff "coach" he joined in on the trash talk encouraged more trash talk and made this experience so much fun.Dino Mullen

What happens when you take Mad Scientists to Urban Axes? Science jokes, competition, and lots of fun! We had a great time last night. Sean and Phil were phenomenal coaches. To say Otto took care of a snag in our food plan would be an understatement. Bailey was professional in every step of the planning and reservation process. This was the best outing we have done. And I'm pretty sure we will be back.

Came to Urban Axes for my friend's bachelorette party and we had an awesome time! Our coach was really helpful and made the experience extra fun, really figuring out the vibe of our group and egging us on. I will definitely be back!
