Anyone can love playing golf if it involves cocktails, burgers and some crazy courses and that’s exactly what the clever team at Swingers London have come up with. With two hugely popular branches in London, one in the city’s Liverpool street and one in the West End’s Oxford Circus, I headed to the latter to see what the fuss was all about.
With a swish bar and plenty of carefully chosen street food style eateries, there is the option to indulge before or after your time on the golf course. Part of the fun is attempting the course after a couple of cocktails, so of course a few were consumed at the bar beforehand. I also tried the vegetarian Portobello ‘dig it’ mushroom burger from the Patty & Bun stall which was heavenly – I would recommend!
Once on the course, you will have to navigate through various different ‘crazy courses’ including through a loop-the-loop and through a spinning Ferris wheel. The Swingers team will even bring you more bevvies as you play along the course – if that’s what you want, of course.
Finish off the evening with a scoop or two of scrummy ice cream from the Italian Hackney Gelato. Remember to book ahead, as this place gets busy.
