Ding Dong Lounge dials up the time machine

Ding Dong Lounge dials up the time machine and lands in the early 90s


Remember when life was cooler and simpler, cell phones were still bricks, internet didn’t rule your life and no one used the words ‘social’ and ‘media’ in the same sentence.

On the back of recovering from their huge Halloween Hardout event Ding Dong Lounge offers up a night to remember winding back the clock to the days of flannel shirts, ripped denim jeans and messed up hair going full tilt for the ultimate Grunge experience.

Think Seattle Sound dialled up to 10 with DJs spinning Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, Mother Love Bone, Temple Of The Dog, Stone Temple Pilots, The Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, Bush, Silverchair, Tad, The Melvins, Sonic Youth, Pixies, The U-Men, Dinosaur Jr, Blind Melon, Meat Puppets and many more!!!

As if that wasn’t enough to get your 90s mosh on LIVE covers band Dope Vader delivers 90's grunge rock stoner anthems in the upstairs bar at Ding Dong. Their mission statement is simple and sure to please even the most discerning 90’s aficionado “We play the best 90's loud as f**k anthems to melt your faces off and make you party hard”.

You’ll also get acoustic grunge covers from Matt Perry & Poncho downstairs from 7pm as well as happy hour drink specials from 7pm to 10pm. Conditions apply.

Come relive your misspent youth or live a whole new one over one epic Grunge-filled night. One ticket gets you into the main bar where the DJs & acoustic music is and includes upstairs where the band plays. No ticket, no entry so grab one today!
