A crazy-golf club in the heart of the City, where players can enjoy 16,000 square feet of 1920s themed golfing. There are two bespoke, nine-hole courses, five (count ’em) bars, a trio of street food vendors (currently Pizza Pilgrims, Patty & Bun and DF/Mexico), DJs and a two-storey clubhouse with a terrace. All this in an fairly innocuous office block beside the Gherkin.
Tickets are priced £10-£13.

For a fun evening with friends that's a bit different, this is one of those London discoveries that's like gold dust! Opposite the Gherkin the sprawling venue is decked out with a themed crazy golf course and offers an evening of hilarious entertainment as your friends get competitive and show off their golf moves! With nine holes and two courts each course is quite a good length of time; and there's a food court with popular names like Pizza Pilgrims and Hoppers for when you're recuperating between games.
Going on a Thursday evening the place was full and buzzy without being packed; as I imagine it is at the weekends; and from experience it seems that smaller groups of 2 - 4 are probably preferable if you're all wanting to play on the course at the same time. The place has a real energy about it and the staff are all extremely helpful and enthusiastic; if you run out of drinks you can also ask them to bring more to the course for you, there's a great cocktail list to help get your evening started!
Great fun in the heart of London, went for Father's Day and enjoyed it a lot. The floating bar staff were especially useful, ensuring plentiful booze while you swing.
The whole thing was 9 holes, which felt a little short, but the bar and pop up food stalls meant that you can hang around and just soak up the atmosphere. Swanky toilets too, making you feel like a country gentleman about town.
Loads of fun putting round the greens, nice drinks, good food, sexy bar staff. What's not to like? The best bit was bumping into some guy from Made in Chelsea and asking if he was from The Only Way is Essex :-D
The new Swingers has a permanent home at the foot of the Gherkin. It is really well organised, great food and fab drinks. Would recommend for a fun night out with friends.
