Eyes down! Think of bingo and you’re probably picturing a carpet of blue rinses, gently bobbing as Joan and Vera furiously dab away down at Mecca Bingo. Well not any more. Put away the false teeth, forget the zimmer, bingo just got millennial.
Posh bingo is just that; brought to you by Bing Academy and held in the salubrious confines of Finsbury Square’s Kitty Hawk; there’s nothing end-of-the-pier about it.
If you’ve ever been to your local bingo hall then you’ll have noticed the food’s not upto much (although, top-tip, it is generally very cheap). Cold food and a cuppa is gourmet down at Meccca. Not so much at Posh Bingo. The finger food includes Kellogg’s fried chicken and crackling with sour apple and kimchi and while the word ‘pornstar’ should never normally be uttered in the same sentence as ‘bingo’ for fear you’ll never see your granny in the same way again, with posh bingo it’s fine because the martinis are pornstar all the way.
And what of the bingo itself? Well that sounds like it’ll be far more lively and fun than the usual working-mens’-club versions. Expect light displays, music and anything but the deathly hush of a room filled with OAPs.
Posh Bingo at The Kitty Hawk is running on Fridays and Saturdays until Saturday 15th December.
