Disclosure: We received a complimentary lesson to facilitate this review. However, all opinions are my own.

Are you tired of the same old boring movie and dinner date nights? If so, you are in for a real treat!

Axe Throwing, have you heard about all the hype surrounding this trendy sport? It seems as if the trend is catching on quick as ranges continue to pop up all across the nation. Who knew that throwing an axe could be so much fun!?! The great thing is that Houston is lucky enough to have a range of its own and I couldn’t be happier considering this date night with a twist is just what my date life needed. In fact, its what all relationships need! Fun!

It’s a great addition to Houston’s entertainment scene and a quirky date night that’s sure to have your date on their best behavior so that they don’t get AXED! We spent the beginning of our visit learning about Axe Throwing and taking in the safety rules before we got the change to throw and stick our Axes. Don’t be alarmed, there is an instructor to guide you every step of the way! We had an ‘AXcellent’ time and can’t wait to return!

The Scoop

Houston Axe is Houston’s first indoor urban axe throwing range and the first axe throwing club in Texas. They opened June 13, 2017 and have been taking Houston’s entertainment scene by storm ever since.

You and your best mates will spend 1.5-2.5 hours becoming intimate with a 1.5lb piece of whirling wood and metal as you learn, practice and then finally square off  in a group tournament for the title of Axe Throwing Champion. Don’t worry! Houston Axe Throwing sessions are ran by trained Axeperts who will show you how to safely handle an axe and chuck it with accuracy while giving you tips on how to capture that illustrious Bullseye!

  • You are required to sign a waiver before your session
  • You can bring in outside food and drinks, including alcohol (no hard liquor) as long as you follow the guidelines.
  • Its recommended to dress comfortably and you MUST wear closed toe shoes
  • Reservations are required
  • They do offer Axe Throwing Leagues

Here is why Houston Axe Throwing should be your next date night!

Something New

I love my date nights but I admit that I bore quickly. The traditional movie and dinner date nights are cool but why not try something new together!? The excitement of experiencing something fresh, new and unique will surely take your relationship to new heights. If this is your goal, then Houston Axe is your place to be! Grab your date, make your reservation and go have an awesome time.

Friendly Competition/Bragging Rights

Nothing brings out the butterflies more than talking smack to your mate! Axe Throwing is definitely a competitive sport. One minute I was cheering KB on and the next we were competing to see who could get their axe to stick more. We both walked away with bragging rights because I got the first Bullseye but he got more of his axes to stick. Relationships need this excitement!

Creating Memories/Snapchat Worthy

Dating is all about creating memories. I have been married for almost thirteen years and we still reminisce on date nights from the past. One day, we’re going to look back and talk about our axe throwing date and laugh about our failed attempts and who did better. These are the exact memories that all relationships should be seeking! Besides, it makes for one bad ass Snapchat!

Good Laughs

The term “laughter is good for the soul” is no lie. If you are not laughing on your date nights you are doing date nights all wrong! You will definitely get your fair share of laughs at Houston Axe. When you and your date laugh together it’s an instant connection that will grow your relationship in a major way. If you’re looking for laughs, bypass the comedy show and head straight to Houston Axe.

Stress Reliever

If you or your mate is having a bad day or your relationship is going through a rough patch then going to burn off some steam at Houston Axe is the perfect stress reliever. You can take out your aggression on the wood and shuck the axe with force, releasing all the dead weight that is weighing you down. The laughs and great time alone will be enough to make you forget all about the whatever it is you are stressing over.

Houston Axe, the perfect date night!

But who am I kidding, this would make for a great group outing of any kind.

Bridal Party, Birthday Party, Team Building Activity, etc..
