New Ferndale bar features ax throwing

A new bar in the metro area is offering something with a little edge -- ax throwing. 

Detroit Axe in Ferndale lets you throw axes at a bullseye to test your skill. 

The owners say the sport has popular in Canada for years, and after having the experience they knew they had to bring it to Michigan. 

Naturally, safety is everyone's number one concern here -- especially once alcohol gets thrown into the mix. 

Brian Siegel says safety measures are in place to keep everyone safe. 

"We run this with such discipline; there's an ax master for every lane. There are very strict rules in the throwing and the retrieving. All of our people are trained to insure nobody is throwing under the influence of alcohol," he says. 

FOX 2's Ryan Ermanni takes us to the bar to show us more of what it's all about. You can watch in the video player above. 

The bar is located at 344 W Nine Mile Road in Ferndale.
