Overview

Great night out for a change, great atmosphere. Enjoying some drinks, chatting and trying to win some money.

Transport & Parking

5

At the main entrance there isn’t any on-street parking nearby but, there is a taxi rank across the road and also from a previous visit an accessible taxi was able to drop me off right at the front door. MECCA Bingo is situated in the city centre where it is roughly a 10 minute walk away from the bus and train station. There is also a back entrance to MECCA Bingo where there is an indoor car park. Near the door entrance there are 3 accessible parking spaces and there are standard parking spaces at a lower level, although if you can’t go up stairs you would have to go up the ramp where cars go. It is free to park in the MECCA Bingo car park, you need to register your car at reception. Within the city centre of Dundee there’s also plenty of council car parks which are free for blue badge holders.

Access

4

The doors to enter from the front entrance and the entrance from the car park are push or pull glass doors and you get a lift up to reception and the main bingo area. The front area of the reception desk is fairly low for a wheelchair user to speak to a member of staff but, at the sides of the desk where we got served it is fairly high so my friend had to do mostly all the paying. Depending what way you walk around the bingo chair area, it can be a little narrow to get around. We sat at a table which had 2 fixed seats at either side of the table and I just sat at the end. There was a leg at the end of the table but, I managed to get the leg between both my footplates. We did get offered if we wanted to sit at a wheelchair accessible table but, we were fine where we were. I’m guessing the wheelchair accessible tables are where the seats are able to be moved away (see photo below). I would say the bar is quite high for a wheelchair user to speak to a staff member. You can order food through a machine but, we couldn’t figure out how to use it. When bingo numbers are called out you can also see what number has been called by looking at the screens around the room. There is also seats upstairs in the bingo area and I think there is a lift to get up but, I think it was closed when we were there. I struggled to play the slot machines because my footplates kept getting in the way.

Toilets

3

The accessible toilets are bigger cubicles within the male and female toilets. I would say they aren’t very big for a wheelchair user, especially if they need assistance for someone else. These accessible cubicles would cause issues if someone needed assistance from someone else who is of the opposite gender. I’m not sure if there are any accessible toilets in nuteral gender toilets, I didn’t see other toilets. Nearest Changing Places toilet during the day is at the V&A Dundee.

Staff

All staff that I interacted were very helpful and friendly.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

I would definitely recommend if you are playing a game of bingo, to use the electronic tablets. It auto dabs the numbers for you which was great for me as I would never be able to keep up.
