It’s hard to imagine Battersea without the much loved Bunga Bunga, but it is in fact just about have its second birthday. We have had two years filled with brunches, pizza, dancing, karaoke, and good old shiny, camp European fun. To make Berlusconi even more proud, they will be celebrating turning two with the biggest and best Buon Compleanno Party that Battersea has seen.
Preparations have already started with Uncle Berlusconi wanting Bunga Bunga to look her absolute sparkly, flashy European self. With a new lick of paint, the stage extended, a new sound system put in and even more Italian paraphernalia lining the walls, Bunga Bunga has had a real face lift.
Starting in the early evening, the party will get going, as all good birthdays should, with cocktails and canapés think bellinis and mozzarella, and performances from Latino bands such as Colomboloco. Of course no birthday is complete without a cake, and in true Italian and indeed Bunga Bunga style, where ‘sharing is caring’ the cake will be available in the form of compleanno cocktail sharers, served in individual edible birthday cakes for the ‘best of both’. At midnight, there will be a special celebration and a countdown to welcome in the another year of Italian mayhem and maybe a sneaky appearance from a very special guest… we wonder who it could be!
So on Wednesday 25th September head down to Bunga Bunga for a good old Italian party!
