Get your golf putters out and put your party hats on. In June, London-based Swingers will introduce New York to its alcohol- and music-fueled mini-golf experience, which it dubs “crazy golf.” The 23,000-square-foot club, located below the upcoming Virgin Hotel in Manhattan’s increasingly busy NoMad ’hood, will be open to adults at least 21 years old. (The two British brands are not affiliated.)
You’ll know you’ve arrived when you see the golf ball chandelier and photographs of such celebrities as Kim Kardashian and RuPaul in action on various courses. Down a flight of stairs, the space unfolds as a series of three 9-hole courses and six bar areas with names like the Greenhouse and the Clubhouse. There are white picket fences, leaf-covered trees, a white rose tunnel—all faux, of course—and wall-sized videos of bucolic scenes such as hot air balloons aloft. Holes on the courses are hidden in hills and beyond swinging pendulums.
