Bunga Bunga London
Bunga Bunga is just off Battersea Bridge, London. Deriving its name from Italy’s most titillating joke, this tongue-in-cheek bar and pizzeria serves authentic cocktails and cuisine in a vibrant space dedicated to Italy’s finest icons. Bunga Bunga is a celebration of all that is amusing and melodramatic in Italian culture. From the moment they arrive, guests are whisked away on a Roman holiday.
The ground floor houses a striking gondola - shaped bar with the canals of Venice depicted on the wall behind. Other quirky design features include a tribute wall to Italy’s ultimate lovable rogue, Berlusconi, lamps fashioned from upside down Vespa helmets, and Italian language tapes playing in the appropriately named bathrooms - Ruby's for ladies, Silvios for men. Bunga Bunga provides innovative drinks that cannot fail to astonish and delight, such as a signature sharing cocktail in the form of The Colosseum and the horse's head featured in classic film, The Godfather.
For those who want to feast on a slice of Italy there is a dining area separated from the bar by a stage in the shape of The Colosseum, where regular performers, as well as guests who want to indulge in a spot of karaoke, entertain both drinkers and diners. Guests can sit at informal trestle or bar tables and enjoy simple but delicious Italian cuisine including antipasti, salads and thin/crisp sourdough pizzas. Those with a big appetite and sense of humour can also attempt the Captain Unlimito challenge, 1 meter of pizza in 9 minutes, are you up to the challenge?
