Now Open Near Station House: Swingers, a Bar-Meets-Mini-Golf Club in Dupont Circle
Mini golf meets high-end bar meets DJ-led rave. That’s pretty much the mash-up you’ll find at Swingers. Its newest outpost in Dupont Circle draws from an original “crazy golf” course in London. The premise is pretty simple. Start with an artfully designed golf course, full of stunning touches and free of any kitsch; then add artisan street food and cocktails; and finally, invite a DJ to lay down a thumping soundtrack.
Swingers in Dupont Circle executes the equation flawlessly. Its quirky indoor mini-golf course is filled with whimsical accents, from multicolored lights to hanging strands of flora. At the bar, expert mixologists craft unique cocktails like the Happy Gilmore, a frozen blend of Crown Royal Deluxe and Coke, and the Mulligan Mule, which combines Tito’s vodka with hibiscus liqueur, hibiscus ginger beer, tonic, and lime juice. Meanwhile, the kitchen offers bites made by local vendors—think tuTACO’s chorizo-and-steak-stuffed tacos and Lil Succotash’s fried pickles and mini corn dogs. Nosh, sip, and swing your way through the mini-golf course while the DJ does their thing. To ensure your spot, make a reservation online for a specific date and window of time, and grab a drink or a bite until you can tee off.
