CINCINNATI – Bull's-eye!

The city of Cincinnati will get its first ax-throwing facility later this year, according to the website for Urban Axes, a boutique ax-throwing chain.

The site said Urban Axes plans to open at 2010 Elm St. in Over-the-Rhine this fall. Urban Axes offers group and individual booking at its facilities, which allow people to throw axes at wooden targets. Locations also host competitive ax-throwing leagues.

The chain started in Philadelphia in 2016 and currently operates a second location in Austin, Texas. According to its website, another location will open in Baltimore this spring, followed by facilities in Boston and Durham, North Carolina, in the summer.

Some locations will serve alcohol, while others will allow bring-your-own-beer, but the website did not say whether Urban Axes' Over-the-Rhine location would serve alcohol. A message was left with the company seeking more information.

Urban Axes will join other local ax-throwing ventures in Greater Cincinnati. Cincinnati Axe Throwing became the first ax-throwing facility in Greater Cincinnati when it opened at 4814 Peter Place in West Chester Township in June of last year.

Louisville-based Flying Axes has announced plans to open a location at 100 W. Sixth St. in Covington by mid-June.
