Bunga Bunga Battersea

Squaremeal Review of Bunga Bunga Battersea ?

The name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the now-notorious romps reportedly favoured by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi – no wonder this self-styled ‘Englishman’s Italian bar, pizzeria and karaoke’ has proved a hit with the Made in Chelsea posse and sundry partying royals. Festooned in retro souvenir garb, it’s a deliberate send-up of package holidays circa 1970 – think ‘gondoliers’ touting ‘aperitivo hour’ classics and interesting novelties such as a Canteloupe Collins built on melon and Parma ham-infused vodka. Spirits by the bottle are the thing in the Eurovision-themed party lounge upstairs, while Sicilian house vino by the carafe is the tipple of choice to go with cured meats, bruschetti and wafer-thin crust pizzas with cheesy names. To complete the offering, the top-floor ‘L’Osservatorio’, available for private hire, comes with telescopes for star-gazing – or indulging in some bunga-bunga voyeurism. Expect great fun Saturday party brunches with entertainment and karaoke too.

Booked Bunga Bunga back in November for a group of us for a Xmas together last night on the 14th Dec … when we got to the venue … it was closed?! … weird as we had a 7pm booking … apparently they do not open until exactly 7 pm but get this you only get a 2 hour table max, OK fine if you can go to the bar, chill and have a few drinks beforehand right ? but no you wait outside and just wait for the privilege for them to open the door to you .. nice welcome NOT – there wasn't anyone on the door to explain...

Editor's pick Bunga Bunga is Chelsea meets Chav but if it's good enough for Prince Harry then it's good enough for the rest of us. Decor is “totes amaze” with lots of generic Italian motifs (hanging Vespas and giant tomato tins on tables) as well as a disturbing number of pictures of The Man Himself. I feel a smidge uncomfortable in a place celebrating a premier who never tempered his Rupert Murdoch style media empire despite his political office, who changed laws thereby preventing the prosecution of various...

    The Lifestyle Diaries :: The Lifestyle Diaries: Brunch at Bunga Bunga

    Looking for a very fun, alternative and fairly (read very) boozy brunch in London? Well Bunga Bunga is just the place for you! With bottomless prosecco and make your own Bellinis, as well as a three course feast and karaoke - I'm not really sure if there is a better way to spend your Saturday afternoon!

    We started in the beautiful sunny day light with a carafe of prosecco and our mixers, whilst we perused the very exciting menu! We were at the 2pm sitting, but from the looks of things there were still some of those who were at the 11am sitting hanging around at the bar..!
