Best Bar For Outcast Columbia Students New York 2002 - DING DONG LOUNGE
With so many bars so close to campus (the West End, Amsterdam Café, the Heights, 1020, SoHa, Nacho Mama's, etc., etc., etc.), most Columbia students rarely venture very far from the library to do their drinking. Those who make the relatively lengthy trek to DING DONG LOUNGE tend to be the type that would rather beat on a sorority girl with a baseball bat than buy her a beer. A punk-rock dive located in a former crack house (or so they claim), Ding Dong provides brooding comp lit majors and speed-addled pre-meds with pleasant company in the form of jaded thirtysomething singles for whom the Lower East Side just isn't seedy enough anymore.
