Axe Throwing in Lewes!

Lefty’s Alley and Eats has brought the first ever axe throwing activity to Lewes!

Lefty’s located in Lewes Delaware, converted an old storage area into what is now the axe throwing arena. The private axe throwing room has two lanes with tons of seating for up to 12.

Lefty’s had been thinking about ways to expand the business and that the axe throwing idea has been a dream for 2 years now. Due to COVID-19, Lefty’s took advantage of the shut down, and moved full steam ahead renovating for the project.

“It’s like darts on steroids. But honestly the way the game works is a lot like golf in my opinion. It’s about technique and finesse, not all about brute force,” said D.J. Hill with Lefty’s.

Both throwing lanes have two large wooden boards at one end. What we were told is the closer you can throw your axe at the bullseye, the more points ya make… kinda like throwing darts?? Axe throwing is not as easy as it sounds though. Austin Robert is the onsite expert! Austin works with each group, laying down the ground rules. He makes sure everyone stays safe and passes along a few teaching skills to help everyone hit a bullseye.

Governor Carney announced new restrictions on private and public gatherings. But Hill says this will not take away from any of the fun, it will just keep things safer.

“It’s 2020 right? So the best we can do is rent this space by the hour for one specific group. It’s a private rental space. A minimum of 8 and max of 12, preferably from the same household,” said Hill.

The private area is perfect for birthday parties, team-building events, bachelor/bachelorette parties, reunions, or just a fun night out with friends. To find out more about making a reservation or general details, visits Lefty’s website:
