Live music at Valhalla every week? Yes please! All through Spring and Summer, this new* restaurant, at 224 W. South Street in historic downtown Benton, will host live musical artists on Thursday nights beginning at 6 p.m. Watch their Facebook page to see who’s playing each week.
Is Valhalla Restaurant and Axe Throwing new?* Yes and no. Owners Shawn and Denise Hipskind opened for business in April 2020, but because they opened during a pandemic, they saved their grand opening to coincide with their one-year anniversary. Watch their social media for an update on how they will be celebrating the grand opening and anniversary on April 8th – 10th. It’s amazing how far this property – formerly the Saline County Library – has come, since the Hipskinds purchased it in May 2019. See this previous article for a photo gallery and some history.
And then there’s the spacious outdoor section. They have a covered patio for dining and an uncovered area with more seating and yard games like baggo, ping pong, giant Jenga and Connect Four. The outdoor area is family-friendly and dog-friendly.
There’s more upstairs, with three lanes of axe-throwing and three bed and breakfast apartments for rent for a party or for overnights.
