Urban Axe Throwing Lounge

At Dueling Axes, our mission is to provide a one-of-a-kind axe throwing experience and atmosphere for this exciting sport. Fun and excitement come in second only to safety.

Competitive Axe Throwing – Fun and Safe

Satisfying the drive for new experiences, axe throwing is a fun and safe activity for groups of all sizes. Let’s face it, you’ve thought of what it would be like to throw an axe – now you have the chance to bring your primal desires to life. Conveniently located in the downtown Columbus and New Albany/Gahanna areas, Dueling Axes provides a lounge atmosphere where you and your friends can eat, drink and throw axes with a variety of gameplay options (kind of like darts, but on steroids). Each lane has its own digital scoring system as well.

Single-target lanes are recommended for groups of 4-6 people for 1-, 1.5- and 2-hour reservations. Groups of 7 or more can play side-by-side on adjoining lanes (automatically placed side-by-side during the reservation process). Visit us after work, before a dinner date, before you hit the bars or mid-bar hop for a new experience like nothing else. Our axe throwing lounge in Downtown Columbus features a full-service bar and is outside food friendly, so don’t forget to grab a pizza for your group when you’re on the way! Our New Albany axe throwing lounge is also outside-food friendly and has a full-service bar for your convenience.

“What wonderful staff. Taught my wife and I the technique, showed us some games and let us get to it. Great atmosphere and music with options to have food delivered. Place was busy when we got there and after we left but the staff was attentive to everyone and was always right there for anything from questions to calling out praise when people nailed a blue dot.”
