Bunga Bunga's 1st Birthday

The guys at Bunga Bunga know how to party.  If you’ve never been, let me give you the lowdown.  It’s an Italian restaurant on Battersea Bridge Road which serves some really good food (the pizza’s are as long as the table and de-licious and the Aubergine Parmigiana is to die for).  They have really gorgeous ladies on the door with fab figures that make you not wanna eat your weight in food when you get in there.  Then you see the menu and decide you’ll do that next time. 

While you eat your dinner and sing the occasional Happy Birthday for the gang at the next table (it’s a super friendly / family place), they get some live music on the go and you kind of wish you weren’t at work tomorrow cos you know what’s coming, because as the last of the orders come in, the karaoke gets started!  Now if like me, you think karaoke should be for people who really can’t sing (as opposed to those ones who get up and sing Celine Dion note perfect while they do that thing with the microphone like on X Factor), then this is the place for you!  The singing is sometimes so bad that people get boo-ed off - exactly how it should be I reckon!  (Although I'm proud to say that when we did 'Sex on Fire', we did actually make it to end - think my mic might've been broken that night!)  And after karaoke, well, the real party starts!  The DJ spins his tunes, cheese, pop and chart downstairs, dancey housey stuff upstairs….  And you just have to be there at midnight……for Christmas!!  Christmas happens every night at Bunga Bunga and it’s ingenius! Glitter and shiny bits of paper fall from the ceiling and Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas’ blares out across the bar as everyone sings and toasts their drinks and genuinely get caught up in the moment – something you definitely have to witness!  Then everyone remembers it’s the middle of September and goes back to partying.

Last night was Bunga Bunga’s first birthday party – something definitely worth celebrating, so I rounded up the girls and headed down there early to sample some gorgeous Martini Royale’s and Mojito’s!  There was also mouth watering parma ham and big lumps of parmesan, prawn tempura and bruschetta in abundance followed by ice creams in proper ice cream cones!!  (Take note Heliot).  We even got special cup cakes to take home with us.  Nancy Dell’olio dropped by and my mate Sandy cornered her in the toilets to find out her beauty secrets - ‘lots of water’ is apparently key.  Why thank you Ms Dell’olio!  We’ll drink to that! (Water.  Of Course.) 
So if you're in the mood for a really fun italian atmosphere while drinking cocktails and eating pizza, singing, dancing and celebrating christmas, then this place is defo worth trying out.

Bravo to Robyn who is the totally fabulous General Manager and the whole gang at Bunga Bunga who made it a really special night.
