Ding Dong Lounge is a Rock bar in the down town vicinity, welcoming business patrons & rockers alike. As an alternative to the Viaduct & Britomart, Ding Dong Lounge hosts a steady roster of Rock n Roll DJs and weekly live bands with a great food & drinks menu available all night! The main bar downstairs features booths- great for catching up with friends after a long day at work. Each booth has a screen displaying music videos which accompany the songs pumping over the PA. Our upstairs bar is available for special events, private functions, parties and live music.

Some nights they have djs other nights they have live bands. They have some decent drink specials and a cocktail menu. Only drawback is that it is very... More

Ding Dong Lodge is the only place so far where I've been amazed every time I walked in. The music is insanely good. The staff is brilliant. The club combines great vibes and heavy beats, while being clean and open to every kind of people. Beware : you might come at least twice if you're stopping in Auckland for few... More

When i first walked into The Ding Dong Lounge i wasn't sure what to think, this is as i was hetting tire of the clubbing scene in Auckland. It was all stagnant and dead. There was no conversation and it was just "a bunch of nobodies, no-one cares about" (Damon Kenzo). But this wasn't The Ding. It's unlike anywhere else... More
