Down a short flight of stairs on Fortitude Valley’s Brunswick Street you’ll find Ling Lings, late night party host to Brisbane’s ultra-hip, beautiful youth. Signature sips and late-night noms are what draw the crowds, but Ling Lings is increasingly popular for functions, events, and private parties. And now, launching 30th August 2020, Ling Lings is home to a hot new Sunday sesh called Dim Sum Disco.
Dim Sum Disco
What is Dim Sum Disco? It’s a boozy brunch that kicks on and turns into a party once you’ve had your fill. Grab your gang and head in for either a 9-Course Dim Sum Package or an 8-Course vegan option, it comes with two hours of bottomless drinks.
9 Course Banquet includes Fire Crackers, Prawn and Ginger Dumplings, Samurai Fries, Veggie Dumplings, Buddha Spring Rolls, Panda Greens, Pork Fun Buns, Sweet Chilli Lime Chicken Karaage and the Happy Ending (Apple Pie Dumplings)
8 Course Banquet includes Wang’s Shallot Pancake, Samurai Fries, Veggie Dumpling, Buddha Spring Rolls, Panda Greens, Salt and Pepper Tofu, Eggplant San Chow Wow Bow and the Happy Ending (Apple Pie Dumplings)
Both options are well-priced. The ticketed event runs just $45pp. For the duration, Dim Sum Disco guests will enjoy Jive along to back-to-back disco, house + party DJs all night long, plus live instrumental artists!
Each Sunday doors will open at 2:00pm exclusively for Dim Sum Disco guests before doors open to gen-pop at 4:30pm, when Dim Sum Disco package concludes. Then the party starts.
Turn the party up
Taking over where Heya Bar left off, Ling Lings is usually lauded for drink-y and unique dining. The unguarded secret is Ling Lings fully customisable birthday packages, supercool work functions and end of year celebrations.

Signature bevvies include beer towers, soup bowl and tea pot cocktails to share. At Ling Lings the drinks are on-theme, on-point, sweet, and strong.
The DJs spin hip hop, house, kitsch and meme five nights a week. Wednesday through Sunday the crowd is diverse, super low-key, and always a good time. Ling Lings prides itself on safe space parties. They’re super active on social so keep your eye on their feeds (IG, FB) for themed nights, special events and food challenges all set to a lantern and neon lit backdrop.
Bottle service and beer towers
At first blush, the bar is eclectic but is cleverly laid out to suit functions of all shapes and sizes. The spaces are divided informally. For your own dedicated spot there’s the Emperor’s Table offering bottle service. The Emperor’s Table is prime real estate guaranteed to kick your social status up a notch or few. The casual Lounge Den is perfect for booked or walk-in groups while Hawker’s Alley puts you right in centre of the party. Or you could sidle your gang around the Pool Table for some respite from the hustle and bustle.
