PORT NECHES — Brett Reeves and Cayce Lyles came up with the idea for an indoor, axe-throwing venture during a vacation to Canada.

That idea is now fully realized as the duo officially launched Avenue Axe at 1126 Port Neches Avenue in Port Neches.

The area’s newest entertainment option celebrated its grand opening and ribbon cutting Friday.

Co-owners Lyles and Reeves said they are especially excited to add to the business development along Port Neches Avenue.

They said axe throwing offers a fun and unique opportunity for team building in a climate controlled in-door facility. It’s also a great location for events and parties.

There is no age limit to participate, but an adult must accompany children.

Avenue Axe is open from 5 to 10:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, 3 to 10:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Call 409-344-4542 for more information.

Future plans call for themed Girls and Guys Night Out celebrations.

According to the owners, they are also developing an events space next door to Avenue Axe.
