Looking for something new, memorable and cool to do in Chicago? Then try Axe Throwing in Chicago, because who doesn't like throwing axes at wooden targets?

Axe Throwing is a great way to release stress, and at the same time, have lots of fun! If you want a break from the city life to have a little friendly competition and comradery with friends, family and co-workers then Bad Axe Throwing is the place for you.

There will be lots of different games that will make your outing more fun and entertaining for everybody.

We are located in Chicago's West Loop. Local attractions include Navy Pier which overlooks the beautiful lakefront, the Magnificent Mile, and the United Center.

Within walking distance is Fulton Market, which offers a vibrant night life with a variety of bars to visit before or after your axe throwing party. If you are visiting from the suburbs Bad Axe is conveniently located off of the I-290 Ashland exit or the I-90/94 Lake St exit.

Please note, the City of Chicago does not allow BYOB or alcohol  at our location (a restriction enforced by the city).

It gets better: if you're celebrating a birthday, you get in for FREE! That's right, one birthday boy or girl won't have to pay when they let us know it's their birthday ahead of their event! Firefighters, police officers, soldiers and nurses also get our lowest & exclusive rate.

(You must provide Customer Service with a valid photo ID showing your birthday is within one week of the event, or proof of your military/police/figherfighter/nurse membership. Please provide proof/photo ID to Customer Service at least 48 hours prior to your event to receive free admission. Standard minimum payment requirements must be made)
