RI’s First Axe Bar on GoLocal LIVE
Friday, February 08, 2019
The bar is located within the R1 Entertainment complex in Lincoln and features 10 lanes for ax throwing competition and fun.
The bar allows patrons to choose from two options: casual or tournament play. To make sure the process is also a learning experience, a throwing coach guides teams through lessons on effective throwing techniques and helps ensure safety every step of the way.
Much of the discussion on GoLocal LIVE - WATCH ABOVE - was about the overall experience of Axe Bar as well as the success of the opening weekend.
Axe Bar will serve beer and wine and a limited food menu. The casual experience costs $25.00 per person, and the tournament experience costs $45.00, and both include a briefing and ax-throwing lesson. Keep in mind that not all thrill seekers will be able to participate, as the experience is only available to those age 16 or older.
Axe Bar will be open Monday through Thursday, from 5 to 10 p.m., Friday, 5 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information or to make a reservation, click here.
