BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Civil Axe Throwing, Baton Rouge’s first such venue, will open to the public some time in August, the company announced Tuesday, July 30.
The large, indoor entertainment facility will allow for guests to throw axes at wooden bullseyes.
Civil Axe Throwing will have four lanes for throwing, with one-hour sessions available for groups of up to eight people. They will also accommodate large groups of up to 50. The company says it will partner with nearby bars and restaurants in order to provide catered food for guests.
“We’re AXE-tremely thrilled to launch our first Civil Axe Throwing in the state of Louisiana and share this new source of entertainment with this wonderful city of Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge and LSU are amazing areas for us because it embraces new and unique ideas, so we knew that this had to be the next city in which we opened our 10th location in the southeast region,” said Scott Brewster, director of marketing and sales for Civil Axe Throwing.
The first Civil Axe Throwing location was opened in Huntsville, Ala. in 2017. It quickly became popular and expanded to other cities in the region, including Chattanooga, Montgomery, Memphis, Corinth, Jonesboro, Little Rock, and Oxford. Civil Axe Throwing plans to open another 20 locations within the next 18 months, the company says.
