U.K.-based mini-golf chain Swingers has announced its expansion into the United States as well as $20 million raised in follow-on funding from Cain International. The financing will support an opening pipeline in the U.S., to follow the chain’s future D.C. and New York City locations.
Crazy golf, as coined by Swingers, is a version of mini-golf that combines gourmet street food, hand-crafted cocktails, a theatrical setting and a live DJ to create an social experience for guests. Swingers will open its third location overall in Washington D.C.'s Dupont Circle June 11th, with its fourth location coming shortly after in New York City’s Flatiron District. Swingers Dupont Circle will feature immersive and multi-sensory, whimsical elements providing guests over 21 with a theatrical and high-end entertainment experience to enjoy with friends, family and colleagues.
“As we look forward to a post-pandemic economy, we are confident that Swingers will benefit from pent-up demand for new and engaging ways to socialize,” said Nick Franklin, global head of private equity at Cain International. “It is our belief that businesses in well-located cities that seamlessly deliver safe, high-quality, hospitality-driven experiences are the future of entertainment and we’re excited to support Swingers’ growth and expansion into the U.S.”
