Bad Axe Throwing‘s new West End location at 617 S Pickett Street is having a grand opening celebration this weekend, Alexandria Living Magazine first reported.

A representative of the ax-throwing bar said the location is currently open, but is planning a grand opening celebration this Friday and Saturday.

Bad Axe is a chain of bars that started in 2014 and has locations in D.C. and Fairfax.

“Our axe throwing coaches will teach you how to throw an axe while helping you improve your axe throwing technique and make you into an axe throwing pro in no time,” the website said. “We offer fun & unique axe throwing games as well as individual and team-based tournaments for an unforgettable experience.”

Prices typically vary for ax throwing from $27 for walk-ins to $45 per person for a booked, private event, but the venue also offers package bundles for larger groups. Currently, the bar is offering $20 per person for walk-ins and $30 per person for group events.

“Located in Alexandria, Virginia, this premier axe throwing venue boasts 14 throwing targets and a full bar,” the website said, “making it the perfect spot to host birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties, corporate events, and any special occasion.”

Alexandria Living Magazine noted that the new location is a conversion of the old Tune and Lube garage.
