Bad Axe Throwing Chicago’s location has recently been featured in the Michigan Avenue. Writer Chuck Ansbacher raves about how Chicagoans are embracing their inner lumberjack with suspenders an all. This urban Canadian sport has taken flight after owner, Mario Zelaya, launched Bad Axe Throwing’s first location in Burlington, ON,  back in 2014.

With axe throwing booming across Canada it’s no wonder that our American neighbours would join in on the fun. Bad Axe Throwing opened it’s doors in Chicago, its first american location, in September 2016.

Since then, it has become one of the most popular activities to do and a great place to help, as Chuck Ansbacher writes, “get a handle on what urban axe throwing is all about.”

With its gaining popularity Chicago has adopted this new style of recreational fun as their own and for good reason; the thrill of throwing the axe and hitting the target. Sweet victory!
