Looking for a new, creative way to blow off some steam? Stumpy’s Hatchet House is the perfect place to gather with friends and unwind or have a date night unlike any other. Stumpy’s is located in the Toyota Music Factory at 370 West Las Colinas Blvd. Suite 120.
Stumpy’s Hatchet House is the original indoor hatchet-throwing experience. The idea for Stumpy’s came from a group of friends at a backyard BBQ. Stuart and Kelly Josberger, along with their friends Mark and Trish Oliphant, were chopping wood for a fire when an impromptu game of throwing the axe at a makeshift bullseye began. They realized the competition had potential and thus Stumpy’s Hatched House was born.
Stumpy’s Hatchet House at the Toyota Music Factory has 11 throwing pits, giant games such as Jenga and Connect Four, and a pour your own beer system. The pour your own beer system is a new concept where customers purchase a card loaded with money for the wall. The customer pays by tapping the card on the reader under the beer they would like to purchase. The tap then is available for the patron to pour their own beer from. Stumpy’s provides the glasses of course.
Stumpy’s has several throwing coaches that show you how to throw the hatchet not only correctly, but safely. Safety is Stumpy’s highest priority and the throwing coaches also monitor the game to ensure the safety of everyone. Every newcomer has a mandatory training of 10-15 minutes to review safety rules, procedures, and instruction on how to properly throw.
Learning how to throw properly is the first hurdle. Once you get into the groove of throwing it becomes second nature! The throwing coaches are great teachers and can get you to hit the bullseye in no time.
The atmosphere at Stumpy’s is laid back and relaxed. All staff and throwing coaches wear buffalo plaid, making them easily identifiable and bolsters the hatchet house, lumberjack theme. The walls are covered in plank wood with stars hanging on the wall. The Texas flag is proudly displayed on the walls and the tables are empty whiskey barrels to give the venue a beautiful rustic feel. The string lights above the pits add extra light and add to the ambiance. Stumpy’s offers packages for corporate meetings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthdays, and team building events.
If you’re ready to do something out of your comfort zone, Stumpy’s hits the bullseye!
