Dance as You Like at Ding Dong Disko

South Jakarta has never been a sleepy destination. In fact, the latest venue comes from Kemang. It is Ding Ding Disko who revs up the golden days of disco by night and a laid-back restaurant by day. The place nested right above Aksara will throws you back to the good old times of the 70s. It reminisces over the space age era with futuristic silhouettes that are old-school, yet it’s all tied up to today’s aesthetic preferences by limiting their main palette to monochromatic orange.

Disco, local and international, is music that is often played here. But don’t fret if the rhythm isn’t familiar because each night of the week is dedicated to a genre that might suit you. As long as you are not a connoisseur of mainstream music, you’ll do just well grooving on Ding Dong’s dance floor.

Maybe you will be surprised to find out that this place is wide open for lunch. In company of hearty Indonesian and Western dishes like pasta and Ding Dong Fried Rice (keluak black fried rice with chicken popcorns, sunny-side up and prawn crackers), they have pizzas and other comforting finger foods to munch on during your fun.

Feel free to have your meetings over coffee, donuts or bakmi from the establishments within Aksara’s proximities. Or better yet, you are welcome to enjoy their specialty cocktails that are yet another ode to space and time odysseys. Here, bartenders have  drawn inspiration after modern pop-culture’s sci-fi references, thus giving cocktail rebirths to bitter and potent Han Solo, desirably sweet Ex Machina, and a remake of 3000: Space Odyssea, among others, to suit your fancy during meals or as you dance the night away until the break of dawn.
