New to Austin: November 2017
Studios and stores for fitness-minded folks
8127 Mesa Dr. Suite B203, Austin, TX 78759
A new organic beauty store has come to Austin, ready to provide cleaner beauty products to the whole family. Coined as the one-stop-shop for all your family’s product needs, the store aims to be the beauty spot that we all trust. Its products are all-natural or organic, environmentally sustainable, and sulfate, paraben, and cruelty-free. Sentrel also has a community space in-house to educate customers on the benefits of using safer products and why we should incorporate them into our everyday routine. Founded by salon veterans James Bryant and Sarah Bensley, Sentrel is named after the phonetic spelling of the word “central,” meaning ‘of the greatest importance; principal or essential.’

When the bar scene bores you, where do you go? Take your standard of fun to the next level at Urban Axes, Austin’s first indoor social axe-throwing experience. Although they don’t serve alcohol on-site, the facility is BYOB, so guests are more than welcome (and encouraged!) to bring alcohol and/or food with them to accompany the axe throwing. Urban Axes can host large groups of up to 24 people, making it a hassle-free spot for bachelor/bachelorette parties and adult birthdays for ages 21 and up. Individuals and smaller groups are also welcome to join in on the fun during walk-in hours. All participants receive safety instructions and one-on-one throwing practice led by fully trained coaches.

With enough space for up to 500 guests, SPiN includes private rooms and 14 Olympic-style ping pong tables—food and a full-service bar will also be a part of the mix.
