If you’re partial to a bit of organised fun (who isn’t?), don your tank top and plus fours and take a stroll through the backstreets of Shoreditch until you find yourself in Swingers, London’s super-cool crazy golf venue.
We incorporated Swingers into a Birthday celebration we organised and the overwhelming consensus from the revellers was that, as far as alternative London hotspots go, this is very hard to beat.
Let’s start with the golf. Each of the nine holes is carefully crafted to form a seamless and increasingly challenging journey from start to finish; in addition, the course as a whole is expertly crafted to compliment the vibe of the entire venue. Anyone hoping for a Happy Gilmore-esque clown or windmill will be disappointed; having said that, for those able to channel their inner-Chubbs, hole in ones are a distinct possibility.
The main attraction is undeniably the organised fun but, for those lacking in basic hand-eye skills or, if you like to keep your socialising a little more freeform, fear not! There is a decidedly well stocked bar, an in-house dj and resident street food specialists, such as Pizza Pilgrims, offering up supremely tasty food.
The only gripe we have is that our below-par performance left us shy of winning the much-coveted winners’ spatula. Next time. Next time.
