Ireland’s biggest party craze, the "bingo rave", Bingo Loco promises a night of wild fun and prizes in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Bingo Loco, Ireland’s biggest party craze, is making its way back to New York City in February with stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Selling itself as a “bingo rave,” Bingo Loco takes the traditional notion of a bingo game and flips it on its head to include big-ticket prizes and bass-heavy music.
The people behind Bingo Loco have enjoyed an impressive run so far, noting that they’ve partied with more than 60,000 people at their events, some of which have been hosted famous Irish venues like Vicar Street and the RDS. They’ve even taken the show abroad to Australia and, of course, North America.
William Meara, Bingo Loco's Minister for Mischief said: “We've taken a conventional game that was approaching extinction and used it as a focal point to get an extremely adrenaline fuelled party off the ground.”
“What happened was an unprecedented demand for something completely new. Every event to date has sold out in advance for two years straight.”
Bingo Loco promises epic tunes, wild prizes, CO2 and 600 kg of confetti, conga lines, speed Macarena, foul-mouthed wind-up merchants, cheeky stage performers, lip-synch battles, dance-offs, outrageous props, holidays to Las Vegas, fantastic crowds and weird, wonderful times.
Their prize giveaways are no joke: trip to Coachella, cars, countless trips across Europe, thousands of Euro in cash, dozens of festival/gig tickets, a lifeboat, a bouncy castle, a cutout of Niall Horan, and even a bag of compost (which was swiftly returned) amongst dozens more prizes.
Bingo Loco will be in Midtown Manhattan at The Tailor on February 1, and in Brooklyn at The Craic on February 2. Tickets are available online.
