Puttery (800 F St NW, Washington, D.C. 20004) is set to debut its third location in the nation’s capital. Owned by Drive Shack Inc., the new mini-golf location offers adults an immersive experience of competitive socializing as well as creative culinary menus and craft cocktails unlike any other. Perfectly situated between D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood, bustling Downtown D.C., and the attractions of the National Mall, Puttery is the perfect place for couples, friends, and corporate groups to enjoy an epic night out. Puttery is currently open in Dallas, Texas and Charlotte, North Carolina, with planned expansions coming soon to cities across the country.
The 19,000-square-foot venue, once the original home of the city’s iconic International Spy Museum, has been transformed into a new social entertainment mini-golf experience featuring three 9-hole courses, each having its own unique theme. Guests will be transported into unexpected locations from immersive experiences including Art Museum, featuring bold and vibrant intricacies on display; Conservatory, decorated with giant redwoods and prickly cacti; and Illusion, where reality bends and all is not what it seems.
“From captivating gameplay and a vibrant aesthetic to creative food and beverage offerings, Puttery is going to take Penn Quarter’s social scene to the next level and quickly become a neighborhood staple,” said Massimo Gianetti, General Manager of Puttery D.C. “I can’t wait to officially bring the Puttery experience to D.C. locals and visitors alike.”
Putting is just a part of the experience. An unexpected menu of chef-curated culinary offerings is available for visitors to feel energized for a night of socializing and friendly competition. The exceptional menu features elevated shareable eats that do not compromise on flavor or presentation while taking guests by surprise with every bite. The Sous Vide Pork Belly is crafted with julienne cucumber, jalapeño, and pickled radish, dressed with hoisin glaze, nước chấm, and herbs; Tuna Stack featuring marinated ahi tuna, seasoned avocado, crispy sushi rice, mango cucumber pico, herb mango soy glaze, and togarashi rice chips; and Fig, Burrata & Serrano Ham Salad with dried figs, burrata, serrano ham, arugula, heirloom grape tomatoes, red onion, champagne vinaigrette, radishes, and toasted artisan bread. Larger, shareable options include gourmet pizza like Spicy Hawaiian, Sausage Pesto, Mascarpone & Mushroom, and more. Guests are encouraged to dine in at Puttery’s upscale lounge, whether they plan to golf or not.
Puttery boasts an extensive cocktail menu that pairs perfectly with its elevated bites. The craft cocktail menu offers guests a wide range of signature and classic cocktails to choose from such as the Margarita Standoff, Mean Machine, and much more. The venue features multiple bars throughout the space for visitors to enjoy their craft cocktails. Additionally, each course has a unique cocktail menu that offers exclusive themed beverages for guests to enjoy only while they’re playing on that specific course.
