Georgia-based axe throwing concept, American Axes has been announced as one of several new businesses to be added to The Works this summer.
Already found in Marietta, the family-owned business operated by Dan Fisher will occupy a 3,065 square-foot space in the Makers Building.
“It’s been a goal of ours since day one to expand to the city,” Owner Dan Fisher told What Now Atlanta. “We’re really excited. The Works is an excellent spot for us to be.”
He expects to open sometime over the summer.
American Axes offers a National Park-themed axe throwing experience for both beginners and seasoned pros. The new location will be 150% larger than the original Marietta destination with 14 throwing lanes in the main throwing room and comfortable seating areas featuring several televisions to gather and watch local sports.
“We will be able to do a lot more with the space. We want it to be a unique experience for our customers,” Fisher said. “There are a lot of axe throwing places popping up but the way you feel in our facility is different. It really feels like being in an outdoor environment.”
With a National Park theme that incorporates outdoors-inspired decor, the experiential gaming destination at The Works will feature throwing lanes named after some of the country’s most popular National Parks, including Denali, Shenandoah, Yosemite, and Voyagers, according to the press release.
“Our first year being open was an interesting one, to say the least, and I’m proud of our team for staying the course and making American Axes one of the premier ax-throwing destinations in Atlanta,” Fisher added. “After the success, we experienced in Marietta, we knew it was time to expand and we could not be more excited to find our home at The Works with neighbors like Dr. Scofflaw’s and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.”
In addition to American Axes, Teint will be joining the tenant line-up at The Works this summer. Founded by Dyana Nematalla and a sister salon to Siréne Salon in West Midtown, Teint will offer an elevated take on traditional hair maintenance services and a menu of signature New York City-style blowouts, glosses, and color, in addition to brow and lash tinting, the press release.
Tenants slated for the 27-acre first phase of The Works will reportedly continue to open on a rolling basis throughout this year. Chattahoochee Food Works, a 31-stall food hall scheduled for a spring opening, includes newly announced vendors such as Monster Cravings, Belen de la Cruz Empanadas & Pastries, Cubanos ATL, Hippie Hibachi, and Philly G Steaks.
