The Ding Dong Lounge is a great bar.

It is suprisingly cleaner than one might expect for a grungy punk bar.

The music is great, the bartenders are quick, and the dim, candle-lit atmosphere will keep you around for "maybe just one more..."

Pros: Dive bar

Cons: Dive bar

Every six months or so I return to Ding Dong thinking it'll be as good as it used to be, but it just gets worse.

Their selection of beers is short and disappointing and they get grumpy if asked to fix something other than a well drink. Last visit, we had to repeatedly coax the chainsmoking bartender inside to pour us drinks before we finally decided to go somewhere else (a patron at the bar was just helping himself). The time before that the barkeep spent about fifteen minutes screwing around with an ipod or something because the music wasn't playing. Bring a flare gun if you want a drink.

I also will never forget their lame attempt to make our large group pay $50 or something ridiculous one New Years Eve to enter their completely empty bar at 2:00 am -- the meaty bouncer wasn't letting anyone in.

It seems like it just serves a few loyal old regulars who are used to the crappy service or are maybe friends of the barbacks.

Pros: most of the time good music

Cons: young students

Oh so tragic. One of the greatest bars in Manhattan yet their bouncer broke some dude's nose last night. He bledd all over me and my friends. Then the guy tried to pick a fight with US! Who would think that a bar of this stature would employ such a meathead? So, so sad.

Pros: Everything but the bouncer

Cons: The bouncer

this is the perfect bar. great music, great atmosphere and great bartenders. everything is perfectly balanced. go on a weeknight for a chilled out vibe. it has a great neighborhood vibe while still being completely welcoming to newcomers. weekends are busier with a good mix of locals, the cooler columbia students, and the occasional foreigner from the nearby youth hostel. no pretensions here. no bridge&tunnel dufuses. no trendy hipster phonies. no williamsburg posturing. just the good stuff (and awesome prices).

Pros: decor, music, drinks

i've been coming here since it opened. there's a small bunch of regulars, but not the annoying or intimidating kind. the music and drinks are top notch and if you feel like it, hoola-hoops.

cheers.

Pros: cool music, cool people, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: sometimes a bit dark

A nice addition to the neighborhood. Love the flyers on the wall. Now just play a little more of the old punk stuff and it would be a 10!
