Axe Bar & Grill

Axe Bar & GrillWelcome to the Axe Bar & Grill, your official campus bar and community hub.

The newly renovated Axe is found in the Student Union Building on the bottom level. The Axe is the site for the best Friday night parties this campus sees, and of course our Wing and Trivia Night on Wednesdays are always packed to capacity. In addition to this, we offer great food at affordable prices. The space transforms from a hangout place and restaurant during the day to a bumping social space at night.

The Axe is a full service restaurant and bar for students, faculty, staff, alumni, locals and more. The Axe, with a modern, charming, upbeat theme, features a double-decker dance floor, a spacious and recently renovated full-service patio, wrap-around bar, big screen TVs, and a pool table, is the best live venue on campus. It can accommodate over 250 people inside and up to 60 people outside.

Check out the food specials including the popular wing night on Wednesdays ($22 pitcher and wings). To find out what’s happening at the Axe, check out The Axe Bar & grill on Facebook. The Axe, located at 30 Highland Avenue, is the social hub at Acadia and in the community.
