Is it safe?
Safety is our top priority. The National Axe Throwing Federation sets guidelines for axe throwing, pit dimensions, and safety parameters, which we follow carefully. Each throwing lane has a safety cage. Axe Masters give safety orientations and throwing tutorials to participants, and our trained staff oversees the lanes. And, if you’re not playing by the rules, we’ll boot ya.
How long do I get to PLAY?
Groups with reservations for Axe Throwing & Deck Shuffleboard get 1.5 hours, including a short orientation with your Axe Master or ShufflePro. Groups with reservations for the NorthSouth Experience get 2 hours of playing time, including orientations. Axe Throwing and Shuffleboard Walk-ins get 1 hour including orientation; NorthSouth Experience get 1.5 hours.
What should I wear?
Flannel or tropical shirt. Ideally, both. Costume changes encouraged. But most importantly for axe throwing, CLOSED TOE SHOES. No exceptions.
how much does it cost?
will i have to sign a waiver?
Yep. Anyone participating in axe throwing or deck shuffleboard must sign a waiver. In general, you are participating at your own risk. Be safe, follow our instructions, and you'll have a blast. You can read the waiver HERE.
what forms of payment do you accept?
All Bars & Recreation facilities, including NorthSouth Club, are cashless. We accept all major credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. All point of sale terminals are equipped with touchless pay technology. Cash will not be accepted as a form of payment for services rendered or products sold.

should i tip the axe master & shufflepro?
We are a team-based facility. All tips are pooled and divided equitably in a valid tip pool arrangement. You tip can go to anyone, and the team as a whole will be rewarded. You can also Venmo @BARTipJar for cashless tips. Thanks!
can I bring my own AXE? Tang? drinks? food? decorations?
can we put a picture of someone on the AXE target?
Hah! Yes. The only restrictions on a cutout/picture is: A) it needs to be a non-human character, like a zombie or Homer Simpson, or B) if it depicts a human, that human has to be present in our facility to give consent. So it can't be a politician or a celebrity, unless you bring them with you.
is your facility handicap accessible?
Yep! We are fully accessible. Guests with mobility issues may need assistance removing the axe from the target.

DO I NEED A RESERVATION?
do we pay now, or when we arrive?
You will need to provide a credit card number to make a reservation and hold spots; however, the credit card is not charged. Payment will be made upon arrival. This way, your group members can pay for their own spots when they arrive. *Note: NorthSouth Club is a cashless facility.
what is the cancellation policy?
A valid credit card number is required to reserve spots on a lane. Reservations can be cancelled or reduced without penalty up to 24 hours prior to the start time by calling 414.939.8592. Cancellations or reductions in group size made less than 24 hours prior to the start time will be charged the full per person cost for each unused spot. NorthSouth Club will charge the method of payment provided at the time of reservation for any unused spots not cancelled 24 hours prior to the start time, unless a different form of payment is provided.
what if we show up late?
You must participate in the training before you can get equipment and start playing. If your whole group is late, the Axe Master and/or ShufflePro can do the orientation when you arrive, but you will lose more of your reserved time. If a member of your group misses the training, he/she can purchase another one for $10 upon arrival.
how do i book a private event?
can i rent out the whole place?

do you save lanes for walk-ins?
No, walk-ins will be slotted in whenever a lane opens up.
will you combine walk-in groups?
On busy nights, we may combine walk-in groups with other walk-ins. The only way to guarantee that your group will have its own lane is with a reservation.
