Look, axe throwing makes us all hungry and thirsty.

Our Calgary’s bar boast great selections of local craft beers, coolers and wine. Have some fun with our ‘retro’ bar food menu items, served through our in-house kitchen service.

The best way to get food while throwing is to pre-order before your event. Food is delivered right to your lanes. To pre-order, simply send us an email with what you want at or give us a call 1.844.228.5550 and we’ll get you hooked-up.

Check out our food menus below (if there is no menu it means there is no food service at that location). Please pre-order at least 1 day in advance.

Want to bring in your own food? No problem! No plating fee!

Please do! You are welcome to bring food for your guests or have it delivered, as long as it is prepared off-site.

What a great night we had. Elliot our coach was awesome, informative, great coaching and great fun. Our whole party all had the best time, and would love to do it again


Stopped by the open session to throw. Picked up the throws pretty easy thanks to coach Jeremy. My son and I had a great time. He showed us some games to play and explained everything clearly. For a first time the hour we spent was sufficient. Will come back.


Walked in at the last minute, Jen and Chantal told us walk in time had passed, but that they were gonna squeeze us in so we could try axe throwing for the first time! Thanks for the hospitality and the great service!


Excellent, helpful, and professional staff assisted our large group and helped make our night that much more fun. our group is booking another event soon and can’t wait to go again!

BATL was founded in the backyard of CEO Matt Wilson in 2006. What started as a personal passion sparked by a camping trip soon spread through word of mouth in Toronto, and today over 2 million people have experienced the thrill of throwing axes at one of our locations, including our Calgary facility near Sunridge Mall.
