Axe to Grind: where unforgettable experiences are brewed with a perfect blend of rock 'n' roll and whimsical Southern charm.
Stephanie and Zaidoon Al-Zubaidy, the fearless founders of Axe to Grind, unleashed their creativity in March of 2022. In the beginning, Axe to Grind was a humble coffee shop off Highway 74. We had it all – espresso bar, bakery, and even the exhilarating art of in-house axe throwing. Because, you know, caffeine and hurling sharp objects just seemed like a perfect match!
But this daily grind wasn’t enough. Life at Axe to Grind was far from ordinary, so we embraced extraordinary winds of change. As our beloved town of Hamlet flourished, we evolved with it. Today, we proudly present a dining experience that will rock your taste buds to their core. The spotlight is reserved for our diverse cast of craft beers and sensational live music performances that will make your heart sing.
Although we don't throw axes anymore, fear not. Axe to Grind is now a hub of epic bashes and unforgettable events, making us the hottest spot between Wilmington and central North Carolina. Prepare for a foodie foray like no other as you sink your teeth into our legendary pepperoni pizza or explore the wonders of our vegetarian and gluten-free creations. It's a feast fit for champions- and of course, drinks to match!
