Booze and axe throwing mix at new Gowanus bar
The latest trend in Brooklyn landed in Gowanus this month: a lodge-like bar equipped with an arsenal of throwing axes and targets set up for recreational use.
Kick Axe was opened at 622 DeGraw St. by Ginger Flesher-Sonnier and Darren Sonnier, a couple in the escape room industry who saw recreational axe throwing was on the rise across the country.
“We did a little bit of research into it and we thought it would catch on really well,” Sonnier said. “I mean, who doesn’t want to throw axes?”
