While you may have other ideas from the title, it’s probably because your head is in the gutter. This is not a post to tell you about that kind of party. We’re also not here to tell you Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn and Patrick Van Horn movie (although it was pretty epic). Our story is about a new type of entertainment coming from across the pond. It marries golf with everything you already love to do.
“Crazy golf” is a British spin on mini-golf, but it’s for a 21-and-over audience since craft cocktails are served by caddies on the course, and at Swingers NoMad, there will be six cocktail bars with signature classic cocktails from London and D.C., as well as 12 cocktails created specifically for Swingers NoMad, private rooms you can rent, an opulent clubhouse and four gourmet street food vendors—Sauce Pizzeria, Miznon, Fonda and Mah Ze Dahr Bakery.
Swingers started life in 2014 as a five month pop-up in a leaky warehouse in London’s Shoreditch, when founders Matt Grech-Smith and Jeremy Simmonds wanted to test out whether a venue that combined crazy golf with cocktails and street food could be a success. News of the pop-up went viral, and the tickets sold out instantly, convincing Matt and Jeremy that Swingers needed to find a permanent home.
The first permanent Swingers location opened in the City of London in May 2016 and was a hit from the start. British GQ called it “London’s new Friday night” and “One of the 60 best things in the world”, as well as nominating it for “Best Experience” at the GQ Food & Drink Awards.
Swingers West End, their second London venue followed in 2018, in the former BHS flagship store at Oxford Circus, London.
As you can probably gather by the expansion, this is something new and we’ll all be talking about it soon. You heard it first here! For more information, feel free to visit their website at www.swingers.club. FORREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
