Swingers, the London-based brand of adults-only “crazy golf” courses equipped with multiple bars and food vendors, has secured a location in Navy Yard for a second D.C. outpost. Washington Business Journal reports Swingers plans to debut a two-floor, 24,000-square-foot space at 1250 Half Street SE in the summer of 2022. That space was previously earmarked for Punch Bowl Social, a chain that lures in customers with bowling lanes, table tennis, and arcade games. Swingers made its U.S. debut in June with a Dupont Circle location that features pizza, tacos, burgers, and pastries from chefs at Knead Hospitality + Design, which recently opened modern diner Gatsby and an attached Mah-Ze-Dahr bakery on Half Street SE.
