CHICAGO -- Indoor axe-throwing is coming to Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.

A Canadian company called Bad Axe Throwing is opening its first location in the U.S. at 165 N. Loomis Street – about a mile from the United Center.

A free open house is scheduled for September 9–12, bookings will start September 12.

For $45.25 plus tax, customers will get a one-on-one lesson on how to throw an axe at a wooden target, as well as a tutorial on how to stay safe.

After a warm-up, groups will take part in a tournament.

There is no age limit, so anyone is welcome to join in on the axe-throwing fun.

Bad Axe does not serve food or alcohol, but customers can bring their own food and beer into the facility. Hard liquor is not allowed.
