New SF Venue ‘Smash Room’ Lets You Sledgehammer Objects For Fun
There’s a new recreational space that just opened in San Francisco, and it looks like a smashing success. When you’ve that special rage or anger that can only be calmed by taking a sledgehammer to old television sets, fax machines, and automobile windshields, a new spot called Smash Room just opened at 1005 Market Street (at Sixth Street.)

Over at the Bold Italic, reviewer Brandy Collins describes the experience as such: “Once waivers were signed, my friends and I were adorned in a uniform for the destruction of fitted gloves, safety glasses, and hard hats. In the room awaiting us were 30 dishes, a car windshield, an old fax machine, dresser drawers, and a computer monitor. The exhilaration of taking a sledgehammer to the fax machine, reminiscent of the movie Office Space, is made very real for anyone immersed deeply in office culture.”
She adds that “To make the experience as personal as possible it’s suggested to bring in your own items for destroying. For something truly cathartic, [owner Miguel] Moises recommends photos or objects of your exes.”

There was already a Smash Room in Fairfields, CA, but the San Francisco Smash Room opened October 1. They also have them in a few other cities at axe-throwing ranges, or at dedicated spots with named like Break Room, but it’s about time San Francisco broke the smash ceiling and got one of their own.
