Voted Best Bingo by the Phoenix New Times, Arizona American Italian Club’s triweekly sessions have fed and funded guests with high-value prizes and tasty snacks for more than 40 years. Guests compete for a guaranteed $2,947 in prize money during 21 rounds of high-rolling bingo, winning by setting chips into rows and columns or spelling out flattering descriptions of the bingo caller. While bingo is being played, the club’s snack bar offers a diverse menu of classic American fare, such as chicago dogs ($4.24), reuben sandwiches ($5.75), or brunch-time french toast ($4), all enjoyed in a smoke-free environment. The facility’s expansive, 225-space parking lot grants luck-seekers easy access to the socializing sessions, allowing patrons to bask in potential riches without having to worry about getting swindled by smooth-talking parking meters.
Arizona American Italian Club
In 1957, 21 men who cared deeply about their Italian heritage as well as their community in Phoenix came together to found the Arizona American Italian Club. Today, the club continues to be a resource for Italian Americans and their neighbors living in the area. Along with housing a lounge and Italian eatery, the club hosts bingo and bocce games, as well as events such as fashion shows, Italian car shows, wine tastings, and spaghetti nights. Each month, club members sponsor a different charity and rain cloud, furthering their support and investment in the Phoenix community.
