AXA’s basement underwent major renovation in 2004. The existing basement was expanded to be twice the size. Now, the old part of the basement has been converted into a storage room, an electrical room, a boiler room, and a small social space the Brothers call ‘the Mung basement.’ The other half of the basement is used as a social space for meetings, pong, and dancing. In 2014, the brothers constructed a new wooden, L-shape bar. The dark-stained bar—with its new placement on the south side of the basement—maximizes available space and creates a more open, and accessible floor plan. The basement is also home to a sizable beer bottle collection, two restrooms, and a new sound system.
