Ding Dong Lounge
Restaurants - Melbourne, VIC
Ding Dong Lounge is in the heart of Chinatown, Melbourne, combines a Saloon Bar, Studio 54 inspired band room and vertical garden balcony to create one of Melbourne’s best alternative hotspots.
In late 2012, Ding Dong owner Bill Walsh set out on what has become a two-year journey to open Melbourne's first authentic Louisiana kitchen. Walsh believes that in addition to sharing a rich musical heritage, New Orleans' and Melbourne's culture are also closely linked.
Nestled in the heart of Chinatown, Melbourne, Ding Dong has already hosted the likes of The Melvins, Silversun Pickups, The White Stripes, Plan B, The Kills, Peaches, Mike Patton, Ariel Pink, Death From Above 1979, Supersuckers, The Ting Tings and locals Wolfmother, The Living End, Rowland S Howard, Children Collide, Shihad, Phrase, Little Red, The Grates just to name a few.
The new Ding Dong has been completely reinvented from top to bottom but has stayed true to its underground roots. The throbbing red neon sign will draw Melbourne’s musically-enlightened like moths to a flame, down our dark alleyway, and up those stairs.
