If you arrive at Ding-A-Ling before 10pm, you might be the only one here. Well, that's a slight exaggeration. The bartender will be here (cutting up limes or whatnot), and there might also be a few friends chatting at one of the small tables tucked in the corner. So if you're looking for a place to have an early-evening drink and catch up with your roommate, this '70s-themed bar is a surprisingly great choice. But mostly people come here to party. You'll find a line outside late at night, and you should get in that line if you're looking to mingle with a crowd beneath the light of a disco ball. There a small food menu with a few hot dogs and vegan nachos, in case you forgot to eat dinner.
