Boston is known for its vibrant culture, thriving arts scene, passionate sports fans and…beer! So, when Urban Axes, the country’s first indoor axe throwing organization, entered the scene in December 2018, Bostonians went wild. Packing in anywhere from 80-100 axe throwers at a time, the recreational axe throwing facility located just outside of the center of the city, in one of the hottest Boston ‘burbs, is constantly buzzing.

Equipped with a full bar stocked with some of Boston’s most popular craft beer brands including, Night Shift Brewing, Lord Hobo Brewing Co. and Willie’s Superbrew, axe throwers can snag a cold one to accompany their axe throwing experience. But beer isn’t the only thing available at the bar, they also have a wide selection of wines and canned cocktails. There’s truly something for everyone! Everyone who’s 21+, of course.

All that said, it’s no surprise that they were recently named one of Boston’s “best bars” in 2019 by The Boston Globe. Urban Axes offers people a new way to hang out, let loose and have some fun. For those ready to dive into the full competitive axe throwing experience, you can book a group event for 6+ people online, and for $50 a person you get to toss around 1.5 lb. hatchets to compete against your friends and family to win the title of the “best axe thrower”.

In addition to group events, Urban Axes also offers one-hour walk-in sessions for $25 per person, bookable online and corporate events – both big and small; a much better option than those awkward office happy hours.
