AND DON’T MISS
Pop-up bars on a limited run is a new concept for the Big Smoke but how about a pop-up crazy-golf club? In a 7000 sq ft warehouse in Shoreditch, Swingers is a club that combines a 9-hole crazy-golf course with street food, cocktail bar and a dance floor. But book quickly on the website as this bizarre but brilliant concept will only be around for a few months!
Location: Factory 7 Warehouse, 13 Hearn Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3LS
