For more than 20 years, local bingo enthusiasts have had a spot to play near Garden Oaks at Family Bingo Center.

The popular spot closed its doors last weekend, but Family Bingo Center announced on its Facebook page that plans are in place for a new location that will be shared in the coming months. According to an Oct. 1 Facebook post, the bingo hall that has operated at 641 W. Crosstimbers St. for more than 20 years hosted its final day of play at the location last Sunday, Oct. 3.

No new plans have been announced, and a Facebook message requesting more details on a new location was not immediately returned.

“While we know this feels very sudden and ‘out of the blue,’ we want each of you to know that was not our intention,” the post read. “We assure you we will be doing our best to have our new location open and ready to go as soon as possible.”

Family Bingo Center offers daily games for individuals and families, and the Crosstimbers location also had a party room that guests could rent for larger events.

“We are so very thankful for the love and support each of you has shown us over the years," the Facebook post said. "Many of you have watched us grow up, have been a part of so many of our special life moments and are the epitome of family. While we are sad to close the doors of 641 W. Crosstimbers for the last time on Sunday we are even more excited to open our new doors.”
