The long-awaited opening of the restaurant / brewery and arcade from Richmond restaurant power-houses Jason Alley, Jay Bayer and Michele Jones along with business partner Ted Ukrop is finally here.
Bingo Beer Co. opened Nov. 2 at 4 p.m. at the corner of Broad and Sheppard streets in Scott's Addition.
It's been nearly two years since the team announced the new concept, which they had in development in Scott's Addition even before they found the specific space. Along the way, Alley (chef and co-owner of Comfort and Pasture restaurants), Jones (co-owner of Comfort and Pasture restaurants) and Bayer (co-owner of Saison and Saison Market) opened Flora restaurant together in March 2017 at 203 N. Lombardy in the Fan District. In August, they transitioned the spot to an event space and pop-up residency for area cooks or food truck operators.
