When you want something besides the typical Hollywood club scene or Downtown bars, Los Angeles lets you get your game on. Though you might think of board games, trivia and Bingo as a last resort for entertainment on the rare rainy day, Los Angeles gives a cool twist to your idea of game night.
Your Monday night could be a winning one if you head to Palihouse Holloway for Bingo. For $10, you can play for prizes and enjoy a drink. Little details have been released so far, but from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight you can test your luck with the classic game after sending in your RSVP for the official opening to email@example.com.

The Underground Rebel Bingo Club
The rebels have taken bingo back and turned it into an underground and exclusive event (for real). You only have two more chances to experience this low-key, alternative way to play Bingo. Even when you buy tickets, the location is secret but having a great time is guaranteed. Dancing, getting the chance to win prizes, and forever having bragging rights about having played the most secret Bingo round ever are only a few things you can take away from a night with the Underground Rebel Bingo Club. Not to mention, all members are hip.

The Spare Room
Only inside The Spare Room at the Roosevelt Hotel can you gather with friends, celebrities like Jared Leto and drink Vodka while playing a good game of Go Fish. Not your style?

The Spare Room also includes a bowling alley and discounts on certain nights for games and drinks.
