About Ding Dong Lounge



Auckland, New Zealand

Founded in 2001 by Bill Nolan, the original Ding Dong Lounge first opened on the upper west side of Manhattan and slowly grew a following of talented artists, writers, actors and musicians.
Then in 2003, close personal friend Bill Walsh opened the Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne, branding itself with a live gig atmosphere that has easily upheld the Ding Dongs furious rock reputation.

In 2012, Auckland was a sad place for rock enthusiasts with next to nowhere to go. Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland opened early in 2013 with hopes to bring together artists, musicians and creative types, as a place to connect and promote the local scene, without isolating those not already a part of it and to encourage those to get involved.

On top of this the Ding Dong Lounge offers a fine drinking establishment with great food and a fantastic drinks selection.

If you're out and about and don't fancy the viaduct scene, you've got somewhere you can bring your friends and chill to Rock n Roll.
