Ding Dong Lounge

929 Columbus Ave. New York, NY 10025 | Morningside Heights | 212-663-2600

Location Description:

At The Ding Dong Lounge, punk (of the '77 variety) never died. The bar is festooned with old-school punk memorabilia, but even with all the Sex Pistols posters and anarchy symbols, it's almost too clean and airy. Even the graffiti in the bathroom seems suspiciously neat. Despite the uptown sensibility, it's hard to complain about a bar on the "Upper Upper West Side" that has atmosphere, good punk-rock DJs, and no yuppies.
