What it’s renowned for
Deriving its name from Italy’s most titillating joke, Bunga Bunga is Battersea’s most tongue-in-cheek bar and pizzeria that serves authentic cocktails and cuisine in a vibrant space dedicated to Italy’s finest icons.
3 things to try when you’re there
The Pizza Unlimito deal on Tuesdays, the party brunch on Saturdays and, of course, the signature Bunga Bunga cocktail served in a model of Berlusconi’s head.
Described as ‘an Englishman’s Italian, Bar, Pizzeria and Karaoke’, Bunga Bunga is Battersea’s most tongue-in-cheek venue, serving authentic cocktails and proper Italian cuisine. The entire building is dedicated entirely to Italian culture, being a celebration of all that is amusing and melodramatic in the country’s past and present.
Dynamic duo Duncan Stirling and Charlie Gilkes – creators of the famed hotspots ‘Barts’ and ‘Maggie’s’ – are at the helm of this project. Bunga Bunga bar in Battersea whisks guests away on a Roman holiday, transporting them far from the dreary London streets. Enter the bar through a dramatic red velvet curtain, take in the striking gondola-shaped bar and quirky décor – an array of Italian postcards, lamps fashioned from Vespa helmets, and even a bicycle hanging from the ceiling!
General Manager Robin Kay oversees a smooth operation which includes top class service of the perfect Italian cocktail selection and London’s biggest selection of different proseccos. Bunga Bunga bar also creates innovative drinks to astonish and delight, such as a signature sharing cocktail in the form of The Colosseum.
For those that want to feast on great Italian cuisine, Bunga Bunga includes a pizzeria area providing dishes such as antipasti, salads, and wood fired pizzas, while sat at informal trestle or bar tables. The area also features a Colosseum-shaped stage, which regularly hosts performers or guests who want to indulge in a spot of karaoke.
The top floor of Bunga Bunga Battersea is an ideal events space to hold parties or receptions, with the elegant Observatory room featuring stunning views of the London skyline. The venue has even positioned telescopes here, to allow guests to star gaze while sipping retro cocktails. This stylish room is perfect for a canapé reception or private dining, with a capacity of 60.
