At the moment we do not have details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the Las Vegas Bingo Liverpool, but we do know a little bit about about the venue’s history.

The venue opened in 1917, and was a small venue (950 seats) designed by John Pearce. Originally named the Swan Picturdome, it was renamed the Swan Cinema in the thirties, then renamed as the New Swan in the fifties which was it’s last trading name as a cinema, as it closed in 1956. It then became the Swan Social club, before changing to Las Vegas Bingo circa 1962. We do not know when it closed, but we know that sadly the building has been demolished.

If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited (if you wish, or we can credit the article as anonymous). You will be doing a service to the bingo community and posterity by helping us record details of all Britain’s bingo clubs and halls. Thank you.

  1. I used to play lead guitar with a group called Duke Duval about 1959 to 1961 on sunday lunch times and saturday night dances. Club later became Las Vagas club

  2. Swan Cinema, 1917 to 1956. The building was reopened in January or February 1957 as the Swan Social Club, described as a “Private Social Club” (not Bingo?). Talent Contests and Auditions were advertised in March 1957. By 3 April 1958 the building was called the Merrifield Club, or Merrifield Social Club. Variety Shows and Dancing were featured. “Works Socials Catered For”. As the Merrifield Club it can be traced as far as March 1962. September 1962 saw the premises reopen as the Las Vegas Club. “Merseyside’s Premier and Largest Casino. Chemin de Fer & Roulette”. Bingo was held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at 8. The foyer reopened in 1984 as The Swan Private Club. Las Vegas Bingo was still in the former auditorium, but that part of the building reopened in 1985 as Qs Snooker & Bowls Club. Since demolished.
