Photo Gallery 1 - Mecca Bingo Stepney, Commercial Road, London - Lost Bingo Halls
Mecca in Stepney was quite a large venue as can be seen, and the interior decor is probably the original cinema decoration, kept in a good state of repair. Full use of the circles is not evident, and the layout doesn't take advantage of the original stage as some ex cinema venues do. The last image shows a lovely light fitting in the ceiling above the circles, and also some very ornate plaster work that includes the ceiling rose. We can see the carpet in other shots, and to be honest we're not sure of the date of these carpets. The motifs may or may not be pre-war, and the colour of the carpet is definitely in keeping with the walls, but then again the colour scheme could have been redone as well.
