Where are you located?

We are located at Ferg’s! You will find axe kickin’ excitement on the south patio.

Our address is 1320 Central Avenue, St Petersburg, FL 33705.

Is there an age requirement?

Sure is! All axe throwers must be 18 or older. SORRY (but not sorry).

Is the facility indoors?

This axe kickin’ adventure is located outdoors so you can breath in the fresh air and take in some of that lovely vitamin D. Don’t worry, we still provide plenty of shade if you’re part vampire…

What are your hours?

Currently, we are throwin’ Tuesday’s, Friday’s, Saturday’s & Sunday’s. If those dates don’t work for you, well dry those eyes! Email us a date that works best for you and we are pretty darn accommodating.

April – September is when the super fantastic Ray’s will be back so we will be open way more! Stay tuned!

Can I book in advance?

Yepperdoodle! We require you to book in advance. Even though Ferg’s Sports Bar is always open 7 days a week, we are not, so we will need to know when your party wants to start chuckin’ some axes around.

Do I have to sign a waiver to participate?

Yep! No if, ands or buts about it!

Can anyone throw an axe?

Sure thing! As long as they are 18 year or older and signed our waiver, you will have all the axe throwing privileges!

Is your facility wheelchair accessible?

Yes it is!

Can I bring my own axe?

Hmmm, even though we are sure you have a pretty baller axe & we know how much you just want to show it off…our insurance dude says “Nahhh”.

How many people can play at once?

MAX allowed on one lane are 8 people. If you have a big party that are wanting to throw it down, then we would suggest booking for 2 lanes! More time you have, the more each of you guys can throw!

Can someone come and just watch?

Heck yeah, as long as theres a seat! For safety reasons though, they are not allowed to be in the throwing area unless they sign our waiver. LUCKILY for you, they can cheer you on close by in our cheering section, separated by a fence…literally, you’ll see when you get here! ALSO, 18 or up only! If they are under 18, they can come and watch no problem, just has to be on the other side of the fence

Can I bring outside food and beverages?

NOPERS! Good thing for you, we do have fully functioning kitchen that offers all your hangry needs along with a full bar! You’re gonna need a little liquid courage to get your axe throwing down, so DRINK UP! Oh wait, what was that? “Oh, but we are having a party and I made a cake” – OK FINE, you can bring the cake, but thats it! 😉

Do you do catering?

Sure do! If you wish to go that route we will get you in contact with Ferg’s Sports Bar that handles all of our delicious catering needs!

What should I wear?

Your axe throwing cape for starters…duh. Just kidding, you are welcome to wear whatever you’d like, we just require you to wear clothes toed shoes and preferably a flannel of some sort (though not required, just bonus cool points). NO HEELS.

Do you take walk ups?

Not typically, we do book up pretty fast thanks to our super cool online booking section. If we have no shows, or cancellations then YES, we will take walk ups, but it’s pretty rare. So what we are trying to say here is, uhhh, BOOK NOW! 😉

What happens if we can’t make it?

To be honest, we are pretty cool, give us a call, at least 24 hours in advance and we will reschedule you. If you call us 2 hours and need to reschedule, sorry but no can do! You will lose your spot.

What is parking like near St. Pete Axe & Ale?

We’ve got it (usually). You can park in the east or south lots right near our area (it’s hard to miss, just look for the wannabe lumberjacks throwin’ some axes) or out front there are plenty of 2 hour parking spots!

When should we get there?

Feel free to arrive as early as you like! Gives you plenty of time to eat and grab a drink before you start! However we require you to get there a MINIMUM of 20 minutes before your start time. So for example, if you booked at 6pm, get there at 5:45. We need to get you in to sign your waiver along with your party and to go over rules and precautions by one of our axeperts. If you’re not there on time and we can’t start your party on time, for example if we have to start at 6:20, your time is still done at 7pm, we do not extend hours for tardiness. SORRRRRYYYY, not sorry, be an adult and arrive on time 🙂

Do you accept cash payments?

No, we do not. Reservations must be made in advance with credit card or through Paypal. Only our axperts accept cash tips.
