It’s not hard to get it right in the bar-barren Battersea, but Bunga Bunga has just raised the bar (sorry). Embrace the obvious cheesy elements – serenading accordion player, a hip-gyrating Elvis (YES), naked body aprons, girls as guys and guys as girls, plus the bartenders are dressed as gondoliers complete with a straw hat.
Do eat mini pizzas at the bar, all crispy and delicious. Do tuck into the jumbo sharing cocktails served in big ceramic fiats and leaning tower of pisas! Do top up your Italian as you pee, as lessons are piped through the speakers in the toilets!
Do not miss out on their Saturday brunch matinée … with unlimited prosecco and bellinis along with a delicious menu of cured meats, Bunga’s Benedict, an Englishman’s Italian Breakfast and Silvo’s Sweet Seducer… if you want to know what these involve then you will just have to get down there (we promise you won’t be disappointed). Perfect way to kick off the weekend’s antics all for just £35 (£45 after 1pm) and that’s not even to mention Ukulele Eric and resident DJ Spider…
It gets rammed, so book early to avoid disappointment! The crowd may be a little bit Made in Chelsea, but get over it, hit the karaoke and enjoy.
