SquareMeal Review of
Swingers West End
Almost as much fun as playing a round of crazy golf at this sister to the Swingers City original is watching others screw up. It’s doubtful whether premium mixed drinks will improve your game, but they’re available to players with reservations and drop-in spectators alike at the four bars. After a Fairway To Heaven (a pink grapefruit gin, apricot and Earl Grey Sour), a pricey Caipirinha or Butter Fingers (a butter-washed whiskey and maple Old Fashioned), you can unleash your inner Rory McIlroy on either of two fiendishly tricky nine-hole courses. The venue – restyled as a 1920s faded English resort – takes up the entire first floor of defunct department store BHS. Loud disco classics make for a party vibe that’s ideal for office bashes or an alt night out. Post-golf munchies are assuaged by street-food outlets; Breddos’ tacos and tostadas, Patty & Bun burgers and Hackney Gelato ices lead the pack.
