Blade & Bull Axe Throwing will hold its grand opening at 1077 East Montague Ave. in Park Circle on Saturday.
B&B is the second ax-throwing business to open in North Charleston. Last month, Chucktown Axe Throwing quietly opened its doors next to Rusty Bull Brewing Co. on West Montague Avenue, about 2.5 miles down the street from Blade & Bull.
[content-1] Blade & Bull is set up with a bar and lounge area in front, with 12 wooden ax-throwing targets toward the back of the space, dubbed the “ax hole.” Owner Ian Smith originally planned to call the whole place The Ax Hole, but that, combined with the whole bar and ax throwing thing, apparently caused more hassle with local officials than was worth fighting. Smith settled on The Bearded Axe as plans were coming together earlier this year, but eventually combined forces with Blade & Bull, a mobile ax-throwing operation that’s been popping up around town for almost a year.
Visitors can pre-book reservations for lanes at $35 per person for two hour blocks. The walk-in rate is $20 per person per hour. Some initial instruction is given before you’re let loose on your own.
No food is prepared in house, but B&B will order and pick up food for customers from Azul Mexicano and Southern Roots BBQ.
In a press release today, Blade & Bull says they are “axe-cited to join the community of Park Circle.” B&B will operate 4-10 p.m. Mon.-Wed., 12-10 p.m. Thurs., and 12 p.m. until midnight Fri.-Sun. It’s open for walk-ins now ahead of the grand opening. [location-1]
