Ain’t no party like a Bunga Bunga party

Popbitch snuck into the bar launch of the year – Bunga Bunga in Battersea. With a Eurovision karaoke room, giant ‘gondola shaped’ bar and pizzas named after Silvio Berlusconi’s favourite concubines, we felt that it could have been made for us. The themed bar cum restaurant downstairs is decorated in eccentric fashion; wild boars in soldier hats adorn the walls alongside pictures of famous Italians like, erm, Frankie Dettori.

In typical Bunga Bunga style (we imagine) the evening was at times confusing, completely drunken and utterly entertaining. Throngs of Chelsea socialites (women in towering heels and men peering through floppy fringes) were entertained by the oddest set of performers this side of a Britain’s Got Talent reject list. From the opera singer, to the guy dressed as Mario covering Dolly Parton’s 9-5 on a ukulele, it took a few free Camparis and a couple of Italian margaritas to get into the spirit. The pinnacle of the evening was when X Factor reject Wagner stood up to leer through a set whilst spanking away on his bongos.

Downstairs, Neil Hamilton (who struggled to keep his eyes above cleavage level) and wife Christine (who I may have inadvertently goosed while pushing through the crowds), were saying ‘mi scusi’ to the Made in Chelsea cast. Upstairs in the lounge Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice were sadly not wearing silly hats, and we’re especially proud of our niche spot – Lezo from Newsround – who was actually very charming.


Verdict: We’d go south of the river for a Bunga Bunga party
