LumberjAxes, Phoenix’s first competitive axe-throwing venue, announces plans to open a second Arizona location at Westgate Entertainment District in early October. LumberjAxes, based out of Pittsburgh, was the first to bring the popular entertainment experience to the Valley when it opened its original Tempe location in February 2018, initiating the axe throwing craze locally.
“We didn’t know what to expect when we opened the first axe throwing venue in the Valley. We were confident it could be as successful as our first location in Pittsburgh, but have been pleasantly surprised at how popular it has become,” said Corey Deasy, founder of LumberjAxes. “When we saw an opportunity to open a location in Glendale at Westgate Entertainment District, whose management team is as passionate as we are about creating an atmosphere of fun, we jumped at the opportunity.”
LumberjAxes’ new Glendale location will be located at 6751 N. Sunset Blvd E-207 in Westgate above Fat Tuesday and next to Stir Crazy Comedy Club. The 7,500 square foot venue will be slightly bigger than LumberjAxes’ Tempe location with 20 targets rather than 16. Most notably, the Glendale location will offer a full-service bar serving signature cocktails and local bottled beer, food service in partnership with neighboring Bar Louie and longer hours to accommodate a late-night crowd.
LumberjAxes welcomes visitors over 13 years old of all axe-throwing skill levels. Axe coaches will be on-hand for each session to ensure proper technique and safety. Unique to Glendale, the new location will offer a $15 rate per 30-minute session to allow guests to stop in for a quick session before or after a game or concert. The hourly walk-in rate is $25 per hour and group sessions are $40 per person for a two-hour block. The venue will accommodate up to 200 people for private parties and corporate events.
