Following the success of their runs at The Vaults and Mecca Camden earlier this year, Bingo Academy are based in east London for their autumn season to heighten the bingo experience further. 🙋🏽♀️ 🙋🏼♀️
City-based bar and eatery The Kitty Hawk will be transformed into a bingo training den, where bingo enthusiasts can get food they deserve. Bingo novices and experts alike will have the chance to hone their skills and live out their bingo dreams. They will be taught the complex rules of bingo and shown advanced dabbing techniques while competing in real-life bingo games to win life-changing (if slightly ridiculous) prizes.
The bingo boot camp will be paired with the ultimate bingo-friendly food menu specially curated by The Kitty Hawk’s head chef. The menu includes Kellogg’s Fried Chicken, Crackling with Sour Apple and Kimchi, Sauerkraut and Montgomery Cheddar Nuggets and more. Plus a drinks menu including delectable cocktails, craft beers, wine and prosecco!

The UK’s shuffleboard experts have setup a new permanent home in Shoreditch. The venue is a colourful space featuring the UK’s first ever open-air shuffleboard terrace and will focus on the classic floor shuffleboard version of the game. 👭 👬
Mouthwatering guest ales and cocktails on rotation and live music complement the most fun, addictive and socially competitive way to spend your days and nights.
Like challenging your friends? Love a drink and enjoy social eats? Then you need shuffleboard in your life…
It’s a hot and popular nightlife trend in places like Brooklyn which originated on the decks of cruise ships in the early 20th century. The easy-to-pick-up, difficult-to-master art of the game is to use your hand (for table top games) or a cue stick (for classic, floor based shuffle) to slide your weighted pucks or ‘biscuits’ down a long, smooth wooden board and onto the top sections of a scoring triangle at the opposite end of your lane.
London Shuffle features alley-style lanes with an all new look that is effortlessly fresh and modern. The new 7,000 sq ft venue also offers the first ever open-air shuffleboard lanes on the outside terrace. Outside, you will also find a stylish Airstream offering a carefully curated selection of craft ales, while inside, an easy-to-drink selection of beers will keep you well watered.
For those who want to treat themselves; delicious long, short and slushy cocktails will all be on offer to add to the experience (and challenge of the game!) while tasty pizzas featuring a range of adventurous toppings will also be available to keep you well fuelled for the fun!
