Brooklyn’s best bingo ‘classic’ spots

Brooklyn Daily

Twenty-something partiers can’t get enough of the Underground Rebel Bingo Club, which hosts wild bingo-themed soirees in Williamsburg and Gowanus every two months. But Brooklyn still has plenty of high quality, traditional bingo contests for the purists out there. Here are some of the most popular bingo spots across the borough:

• Swinging Sixties Senior Center: The Williamsburg center’s tri-weekly bingo games are friendly, laid-back and attract up to 50 players during the summer months. It’s more exciting than taking a tour of the Brooklyn Brewery or shopping on Bedford Avenue.

211 Ainslie St. between Manhattan and Graham avenues. Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:30 pm. (718) 963-3793.

• The Moxie Spot: Who said bingo is an old person’s game? The Brooklyn Heights community center runs the borough’s premiere kid-friendly bingo contest. Children aged four to 10 compete for toys, books and other prizes.

81 Atlantic Ave. between Hicks and Henry streets. Sunday at 6 pm. (718) 923-9710.

• Fifth Avenue Bingo Hall: One of the most competitive bingo halls in the borough. Hard-core gamers at the Park Slope venue square off six nights per week. Crowds are bigger here than they are at nearby Union Hall.

416 Fifth Ave. between Seventh and Eighth streets. Wednesday through Sunday at 7:15 pm. (718) 788-1691.

• St. Columba Roman Catholic Church: Classic church basement-style bingo at it’s very best. Winning bingo at St. Columba is harder than shooting under par at the nearby 18-hole Marine Park Golf Course.

2245 Kimball St. between Avenue U and Avenue V. Mondays at 6:45 pm and Tuesdays at 11 am. (718) 338-6265.
