More about Man Cave at Hobby-X

Originally designed as a relaxed retreat for men, the Man Cave at Hobby-X is not to be taken too literally. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this concept of a space where like-minded get together. Learn all about beer brewing, woodworking, knife-making and much more.

The team at Hobby-X followed through on feedback from attendees such as Elaine who requested “some things for men to do while the girls shop.” Another frequent supporter, Elmarie was looking out for her other half: “A bit of hobbies for men will be great in the future”.
