JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) -A new recreational activity is headed to the downtown Jonesboro area.
According to Haag Brown Commercial, Jonesboro’s first axe throwing venue called “Civil Axe Throwing” will be located at 316 South Main Street.
This will be a large, indoor entertainment area that allows guests to check their axe throwing skills. Participants will hurl a dulled hatchet at a wooden bull’s eye.
It will include four lanes and one-hour sessions for groups with up to 8 or more. Civil Axe Throwing will partner with nearby restaurants and bars for catering services and providing guests with several options for food and beverage.
Director of Marketing and Sales for Civil Axe Throwing Scott Brewster said they’re excited to come to Jonesboro.
“We’re excited to bring Civil Axe Throwing to Jonesboro and share this new source of entertainment with the city,” Brewster said. “Jonesboro is a great city because it embraces new and unique ideas, so we knew that this had to be the next city in which we opened our 7th location.”
Civil Axe Throwing opened its first location in Huntsville, Ala. in 2017.
They later expanded and opened additional locations in Birmingham, Chattanooga, Montgomery, Memphis and Corinth.
Civil Axe Throwing will be open Monday thru Friday for reserved special events.
Open retail hours will be Friday and Saturday from 3:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. and Sunday from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
In addition to Jonesboro, the company plans to open an additional 20 locations within the next 18 months.
While unique to the region, the Jonesboro venue is the second axe throwing business to open in Region 8.
The Southern Hackers Hatchet House has opened a business in the Brookland area.
