AMMAN, Jordan — Ahmed and Sana grab a hammer each and hit the office furniture in tandem. A few screens get broken, along with a printer, but no one is hurt, and once the room is in shambles both appear a lot happier.

The young couple are among those who unleash their rage at the Axe Rage Rooms, one of the new “in” venues in Amman, the Jordanian capital. The Axe Rage Rooms are the place to smash dishes and mugs, break electrical appliances and kick and slam furniture in rooms that resemble an office, a living room or a kitchen.
