Swingers, crazy golf concept, is quintessentially British. Gorgeously designed golf holes carefully crafted to exude the nostaligic feel of a 1920s English country golf club, to be enjoyed whilst supping a glass of fizz or a cocktail. However, this delightfully fun experience is opening its first US site, today (Friday 18th June).
Launching in Washington DC’s Dupont Circle, the new 20,000 sq ft venue offers two, nine-hole courses designed to unlock your competitive spirit. As an adult only venue the holes are suitably challenging with their windmills, loops, funnels, swinging pendulum and impressive waterwheel, whilst also offering an immersive, theatrical experience. The Clocktower (hole 9 on the Clocktower course) is a 30-foot grandfather clock which starts in the basement and extends up through the building.
Another unique feature of the Washington DC venue is the outdoor space. Guests can enjoy access to two stunningly designed patios. To ensure these can be used all through the year, the patios come with a retractable roof. So fancy!
Swingers isn’t just about the golf. With four cocktail bars serving a broad range of beers, wines and spirits, including some local beverages, you’ll not be short of choices. The team of expert mixologists are waiting to whip you into a frenzy with their classic and bespoke cocktails including the Cranberry Mojito Marker, Lime In The Coconut Collins and the Skyline Voulevardier.
Quality street food is an essential part of the Swingers experience, and at Dupont Circle there are some exceptional offerings. Mexican styled servings from Tu Taco; oven-fired Neapolitan-syle pizza from Kneadza Pizza; wings and burger revelations from Lil’Succotash; and delectable desserts from Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery.
To ensure your night really goes with a swing, the soundtrack to your evening will be provided by live DJs, who all hail from the local area.
Swingers was founded by friends Matt Grech-Smith and Jeremy Simmonds. When interviewed about the opening of Swingers, Washing DC, Grech-Smith said, “Swingers introduces the holy trinity that the Brits’ call crazy golf,” Grech-Smith explains. “It’s like mini golf but adds in gourmet street food provided by well-known local restaurateurs, meticulously hand-crafted cocktails, a live DJ, and unites them all into one incredible social experience.”
