We’re a year-round venue for fun that’s easy to get to, with plenty of parking onsite. Our neighbours include a fantastic bakery and even a brewery. We’re also conveniently located on or near a number of bus lines and close to the new LRT train (Bayview station) as well.

LumberJaxe is the ultimate axe throwing experience & private event destination

Everyone – regardless of ability - can learn to throw an axe with accuracy in a very short time. Follow these simple instructions to discover how much fun it is to watch your axe split the target every time!

Step 1. Stance
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Ensure your shoulders are square to the target. Now you’re ready to throw!
Grab the axe with your dominant hand and the blade facing away from you.  For a double handed throw (advisable to start), cup your other hand over your dominant hand.
Step 3. Motion
Reach back with the axe over your head and step forward with your non-dominant foot.  i.e. If you’re right handed – you’ll step forward with your left foot.
Step 4. Release
Release the axe as if you are aiming a foot above the bullseye.  The weight of the axe will bring it down to the target.  PRO TIP: after you release, finish by pointing at the bullseye; you'll have a better chance of hitting it!
Step 5. Stick It!
The axe should rotate once over and stick in the target.  Sometimes it doesn't.  It happens to the best of us. Lean on our friendly, helpful coaches for adjustments to fine tune your throwing motion and improve your results. 


Nobody is entirely sure where he’s from, outside of the fact that it was in the backwoods near your local Lumberjaxe location

Jaxe isn’t a hipster, he doesn’t have a beard by choice, he was born this way. Rough and tumble on the outside but warm and friendly on the inside. His legacy is his guests success. When throwers leave with a smile on their face and a need to share the love of axe throwing in their hearts, he can rest his head with pride.



The next generation of lumberjaxe in the family, Jill won’t take second place to anybody in terms of axe throwing prowess. Including her dad, Jaxe.

Jill grew up at her father’s side, felling trees before she could walk, and while she’s learned most of what she knows from her father, she’s proof positive that the ladies won’t take a back seat to any man in terms of hitting that bullseye. Jill is proof positive that you can’t judge a book by its cover and Lumberjaxe is for anyone, no matter their size, shape, gender, or physical ability.

Great venue for axe throwing. I like the setup where you can pick up a drink and play axe throwing games.

The trainers are great at teaching you and guiding the session. Definitely will have to go back again!

Great fun with a group of 16 friends (guys and girls). First time for all of us and we had an awesome afternoon.

Staff was great and taught us how to throw properly and we were all able to score points by the end of our tournament. Will definitely be back!

We began our Girls Night Out here and had a blast! This was the third different axe throwing place I've been to, and while the others were fun, Lumberjaxe was by far my favorite! The guide/instructor was great at giving advice when needed but not hovering. Awesome venue, great location, and excellent staff. I definitely plan on going back.

Craig S.

Athens, GA

We had tons of fun! The staff is extra friendly and forgiving for those who can't throw an axe. 😊 Fun games and fun atmosphere. It's even better with the craft beers that are served at the bar! Will definitely be going again!!

What a great bar/event space! Plenty of room for mingling in between throws, and Throwing axes is a 100 times more fun than I was expecting! This is something everyone should try at least once.
