Known for more than its cuisine, Bootleggers is the one of the only known axe throwing venues in Michigan. Offering lanes with wood targets, they feature axe throwing leagues and competitions weekly. “So much fun! Our guide was fantastic. We had a great time throwing axes. The drinks were great. Food was tasty. Great date night in downtown Port Huron,” an enthusiastic reviewer posted.

Starting as a crazy idea of a father and son duo whose love for traveling and food inspired them to create the venue, they were tired of finding great cuisine on their journeys and not being able to find them back home. Thus, Bootleggers was born.

Decor & Design

A mix of rustic and modern design styles, Bootleggers features contemporary furnishing and wide picture windows to let the light play off the clear coat frames of the bar stools. With a polished wood floor and a wood paneled bar topped in stone, along with wine racks on the wall and a carefully cultivated bar area, this venue promises a rich and comfortable dining and drinking experience for guests.
