Live Review: Bongo’s Bingo
The latest instalment of club night sensation Bongo's Bingo is as rowdy and eccentric as ever, says Sorcha Hornett.
This wasn’t my first time at Bongo’s this semester. I had never been previously but managed to secure tickets for one of the earlier events in October. I had such an incredible time, and when asked to review the event, I couldn’t turn it down.
“It couldn’t be further from a stereotypical game of bingo – everyone is inebriated and it’s clear everyone is also having fun
Crane is the perfect venue for the event; the atmosphere was electric from the sheer amount of people that showed up. It was packed due to tickets selling out nearly a week before the event, and it was clear people had been looking forward to this for a while. The DJ/bingo caller provided a crowd-pleasing soundtrack, complete with Irish classics whenever the number 33 was called - which was my personal favourite. As the cash prizes increased you could tell people were getting rowdier as they became more inebriated.
“It gave bingo a whole new meaning for me and is an event you are guaranteed a good time at
Despite the incident with the people next to us and the crazy drink prices, the evening was incredible. The atmosphere was electric, and I cannot emphasise how much fun it was; it gave bingo a whole new meaning for me and is an event you are guaranteed a good time at.
