Urban Axes, a chain-bar concept involving patrons throwing axes at targets, will open in April in Highlandtown.

On Thursday, the Baltimore City Liquor Board approved a liquor license for the bar located at 1 N. Haven St., according to a liquor board spokeswoman.

The 10,000-square-foot Urban Axes facility in Baltimore will open in April, said company spokeswoman Courtney Osgood. A specific opening date, along with operating days and hours, have not yet been decided, she said.

Beers and axes: a recipe for disaster or a brilliant business venture?

Urban Axes will serve beer and wine, according to Osgood.

To participate, it’ll cost patrons $35 for an ax-throwing session. Osgood said the best way to experience Urban Axes is in groups of six to 12. Capable of holding 150 ax-throwers, the facility will feature six throwing sections and 24 targets.

Urban Axes opened its first facility in 2016 in Philadelphia, and, not long after, opened a second location in Austin, Texas. Baltimore will be its third.
