If you’re a Sydneysider with a love for karaoke (while drunk or sober), there’s no doubt you’ve been to the iconic Ding Dong Dang Karaoke in Surry Hills. 

Unfortunately, the iconic establishment joins the long list of bars and clubs affected by the economic pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, closing its doors for good.

The shiny neon sign on Randle Street that we’ve passed countless times has been removed, simply discarded on the sidewalk like a piece of trash.

Sydneysiders have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to the iconic venue, with some reminiscing on the time they annihilated Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ with tears running down their face.
