South Houston Bingo Hall Swings Both Ways

Both daytime and nighttime players are accommodated at Bingo Paradise Houston, the 38,876-sq.-ft.  gaming hall fronting College Ave. just off the Gulf Fwy. in South Houston. It’s been on the scene for years with its outside appearance unchanged — except for a new paintjob that turned the previously white lettering yellow within the past year.

Before the current business moved in, a discount retail warehouse occupied the space. Now, the building — put up in 1959 — is pushing 60 years on its 4-acre lot at 1520 College Ave.

  • Isn’t this the building that was raided by police a few years back? Hidden rooms, arsenal of illegal guns, money laundering?

  • Yep, that’s the one. Amazing that they glide past that and go back to doing the same thing.

  • I used to go to a church that met in the space right between the two. We didn’t have any of the guns and money laundering, though.
