Let off some steam with axe throwing, the​ ​lumberjack-inspired twist on darts, which involves hurling an axe at wooden boards. Fear not, however — onsite “axe pros” will make sure no one loses a limb.

Or, try your hand at backyard-style games with a twist at THRōW SocialTM DC: iceless curling and FootBowl, with the goal of being the first team to knock down all the pins. While THRōW SocialTM DC’s games are designed for eight people (two teams of four), up to two extra players can be added during each session. Don’t have enough for a team? No sweat. You’ll be paired up with other players and make new friends in the process.

Head upstairs to “flamingle” at THRōW SocialTM DC, where the vibe is all about tropical beach life — guests can lounge under a cabana or snap a selfie in front of glowing, punny neon signs.
