Going out is always fun, but if you’re looking to shake up your nightlife routine, why not try your hand at bingo, trivia, or karaoke? We’ve found nine venues located throughout Tucson that offer at least one of those three fun activities.

To help spur some enjoyable evenings, we’ve included when these events typically happen, though it’s best to check directly with each place to ensure whatever fun activity you’re interested in is still on for the day you plan to visit—especially with the holidays on the horizon.

Play Bingo at Casino Del Sol

5655 W. Valencia Road

Tucson’s Casino Del Sol is home to a massive bingo hall that seats up to 300 people, with a portable bingo digital unit included. The casino has daily specials, plus a Club Sol membership that includes 20% off buy-ins. Guests can fuel up at the Bingo Deli when they need a snack.

Play Bingo at Desert Diamond Casino

Here’s a fun fact: Bingo is the game that started it all at Desert Diamond Casinos more than 30 years ago.
