From the moment they arrive at Bunga Bunga, visitors are whisked away on a Roman holiday, entering the bar through a dramatic red velvet curtain. There is a striking gondola-shaped bar with the canals of Venice depicted on the wall behind. On stage a whole range of performances take place every night including everything from opera singers, Elvis impersonators and for those guests brave enough to sing, karaoke performances. The bar offers a delicious Aperitivo Menu of true Italian cocktails and light bites, as well as innovative drinks that astonish and delight, such as signature sharing cocktails in the form of The Colosseum, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Fiat 500. The pizzeria at Bunga Bunga serves simple and authentic Italian cuisine including antipasti, salads and metro pizzas. Guests sit at informal wooden trestle tables surrounded by Italian memorabilia such as upside down Vespa helmets and postcards, pictures and paintings of iconic Italian images. Those with a big appetite and sense of humour can order amusingly named Pizzas from the 'Julius Cheeser' to the 'Artichoke Heart Steeler'.
The elegant L'Osservatorio (The Observatory) on the second floor offers an ideal private events space. Affording stunning views over the London skyline, telescopes are positioned at intervals beside the glass windows, allowing guests to gaze at the stars. The room has its own Martini bar and guests can also enjoy retro cocktails made from the bespoke trolley. With a 60-person capacity, the stylish room is perfect for private dining or a canapé reception.
Self-proclaimed ‘Englishman’s Italian’, Bunga Bunga is not your normal Neapolitan. Entering the bar, expect to be greeted by naughty aprons and a riot of drama through colours and collectibles. The pizzeria serves a nice little Mediterranean menu with some brilliantly named pizzas. Our favourite? The Julius Cheeser. Up the Sistine Stairway, complete with a reproduction of the famous Michelangelo work, you’ll find yourselves in The Eurovision Room for all your karaoke needs. Take inspiration from the nightly entertainment and strut your stuff with the best of them. For something a little more civilised, you can private hire the elegant observatory on the top floor and get all starry-eyed with the telescopes.
