Greenpoint axe-throwing bar gets liquor license denied

The 5,000-square-foot space features eight ax-throwing lanes.

A liquor license application for the Greenpoint bar Bury The Hatchet was given the axe at a Community Board 1 meeting earlier this week.

The axe-throwing bar is seeking a wine and beer license, but the board voted it down 22 to 12, mainly because of concerns about the safety of patrons, according to Greenpoint Post.

Bury the Hatchet is part of a national chain that has reported very few accidents. However, local board members say that alcohol and sharp tools like axes don’t necessarily mix, Greenpoint Post said.

“The idea of voting in favor of a place where people are drinking alcohol and getting drunk and throwing hatchets — I just, in good conscience, wouldn’t want to open the newspaper and find out someone got hurt there and know that I voted in favor of it,” said Del Teague, CB1 second vice chair.
